Betting on the Tennessee Titans vs. Chicago Bears Game: Why The Line Is So Low

A quick look at the Tennessee Titans vs. Chicago Bears game and bettors are probably scratching their heads.   Why are the undefeated Titans only a -3 road favorite?

Not only does Tennessee have a far more superior record than the Bears, Chicago is starting a questionable quarterback in Rex Grossman, although a Kyle Orton start probably wouldn't make much of a difference in the line.

Mike Seba, a senior oddsmaker for Las Vegas Sports Consultants, Told Covers.com's Stephen Nover he only would make an adjustment of one-half point between Orton and backup Rex Grossman.

LVSC's send-out to their various Nevada hotel clients on the Titans-Bears was Tennessee -3. Seba said his company's oddsmakers were closer to sending out 2 ½ than 3 ½.

"Orton has played well, but as far as an odds perspective his loss doesn't make that much of a difference," Seba said.

But online nearly every sportsbook had Tennessee at -3 by midweek.

So why just a field goal favorite?

"It's more the situation Tennessee is in," Seba explained to Covers. "The Titans have been winning a lot of close games.

"Their games are usually low-scoring. It would be hard to make 3 ½. At some point it's going to catch up to Tennessee. It could catch up to the Titans here in a non-conference road game."

And there is a certain irony when we look at past history.

Since 1998, it was the Chicago Bears who beat Tennessee by a mere 3 points or less in all three of their head-to-head matchups.  Their last game in November 2004 was won in overtime by a two point conversion.
