|Away Team:||TB Bucs|
At first glance the line looks very fishy: Tampa Bay with Brady only 3.5 points favorites against the Bears?. But, once you look at the numbers deeper - you figure that the opening line of -3 was doctored by the books to -3.5 from two reasons. The natural reason was due to great majority of money being on the Bucs. The second reason was to attract more bets on the Bears so the books have a better chance to balance the bets. The question is why the line was so low from the beginning? Well, automatic three points for being away and -6 becomes -3 doctored to -3.5.
Well, while the Bucs are getting better game after a game and although their defense needs an immediate improvement - their offense becomes Brady typical one. The Bears are getting worse.
