Titans Vs Bears Final Score Prediction
The public is betting on the Titans like they are facing the worst team in the league. The Bears are the second worst team in the league. There was already some movement toward making Tennessee the favorite after this game opened pick ’em and the Cutler news added to it. The sharps have backed off more than the public since the adjustment.
My final score prediction is Tennesse 30, Chicago 20.
