Chicago Bears vs Los Angeles Chargers – Picks and Predictions

- Location: SoFi Stadium, Inglewood, CA
Two teams that are far more distant in the spread than in the standings will face off on Sunday night, with the Chicago Bears (2-5) traveling to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers (2-4). Odds for the game will be available at all major online sportsbooks, featuring money lines, spreads, totals, and a range of props to choose from.
Head-to-Head: Chicago Bears vs Los Angeles Chargers
The Bears and Chargers don’t play frequently – they’ve split the series 2-2 in their four meetings since 2007. The winner has covered the spread in all four meetings, and the teams only eclipsed the point total in their 2011 meeting.
After far, far more weeks of consecutive losses, the Bears have won two of their last three games to match the Chargers’ win total for the season. This includes a 30-12 romp over another AFC West team, the Raiders, in Week 7. Despite missing starting quarterback Justin Fields, the Bears ran a functional offense with undrafted rookie Tyson Bagent under center, finding three touchdowns through the effort of running back D’Onta Foreman and clamping down a Raiders offense led by veteran backup Brian Hoyer. Bagent currently figures to start on Sunday night.
The Chargers are three weeks removed from their own victory over the Raiders, but have lost each of their two games since. Their 17-31 loss to the Chiefs last week saw two interceptions from Justin Herbert, four touchdowns allowed to Patrick Mahomes, and zero points on the board in the second half.

Chicago Bears vs Los Angeles Chargers Predictions
The Chargers’ 17-31 loss against the Chiefs last week was their first game in the 2023 season to be decided by a two-score margin. To cover the spread, they’d have to put together a two-score win over a Bears team that’s five games removed from their last two-score loss. That’s a hard projection when the Chargers allow the second-most total yards (406.8) and the most passing yards (310.0) per game on defense.
If you feel like throwing money on +350 odds for anything, there’s worse choices than the Bears’ money line. After shocking two of their last three opponents with two-score wins, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone if Chicago finds some magic again on Sunday night.
Prediction: Chicago Bears +8.5
