On Oct. 4, the Los Angeles Chargers blasted Las Vegas 28-14, but the Raiders had excuses.

Chicago Bears versus Las Vegas Raiders Final Betting Prediction

The Raiders must worry about left tackle Kolton Miller’s status, but other than that, Las Vegas has major advantages. Vegas quarterback Derek Carr is a veteran who is having a great season.

The Bears’ offense remains a mess. It averages less than 17 points per. More disturbing if you’re a Chicago fan?

The defense gave up 17 points to the lowly Detroit Lions and 26 to the Cleveland Browns in week 3. Also, top defender Kahlil Mack is listed as questionable.

No doubt, Fields played well enough to lead the Bears past the Lions. But that game happened at home. On the road, Field will find things much more difficult. Raiders cover.
