The largest point-spread of the week resides in this matchup between the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints. This is likely the final year for future Hall-of-Fame QB Drew Brees, so his Saints teammates will certainly want to send him out on a good note.
New Orleans has been installed as a 10-point favorite with -500 moneyline odds to win the game outright while Chicago has +400 moneyline odds to win outright. In addition, the total is currently set at 47 points.

Chicago Bears at New Orleans Saints
Sunday, January 10, 2021
4:40 p.m. EST | Watch: CBS
Mercedes-Benz Superdome – New Orleans, LA
Allen Robinson (Chicago Bears)
Prop Bets Watch:
- Over 70.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
- Over 5.5 Receptions (-125)
Robinson has limped into nearly every game this season, so we shouldn’t expect his hamstring injury to keep him out of this matchup. Although it’ll be a tough one-on-one battle, the Bears should be trailing in this game enough to where they’ll need to throw the ball a ton. After all, the Saints already have the NFL’s fourth-best run defense.
The targets will certainly be there in a do-or-die situation for A-Rob. Over the last eight games, he was targeted at least seven times in six of those- 9+ targets in five games, 13+ targets in three games.
Michael Thomas (New Orleans Saints)
Prop Bets Watch:
- Over 72.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
- Receptions: odds not available yet (go over)
This could wind up being a big game for Thomas, who hasn’t played a whole lot this season. However, his last four games did turn in three solid performances (at least eight catches, 80+ yards), and the hope is that he can capitalize on that momentum when it matters most
The Bears defense is respectable but opposing teams can move the ball on them. Brees has some interesting prop-bet numbers this week, leading me to believe that he’ll have a big day; if that’s the case, Thomas will have a lot to do with it.
