Jacksonville is a touchdown home underdog against Chicago.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a tough matchup when they host the Chicago Bears this Sunday. When the line opened, the Jaguars were a modest three-point underdog, but since then the line has drastically shifted toward the Bears, who are now favored over the Jaguars by seven points.

Jacksonville is coming off a 17-point loss to the Bengals and are just 1-3, while the Bears defeated the Cowboys on Monday Night Football and are 3-1.

The over/under in this game has been set at 40.5 points. The Jaguars are averaging just 15.5 points per game, and the Bears are putting up almost double that amount at 27 points per contest. Seems that with that line the oddsmakers are sensing that there will be some extra scoring in this game, and likely coming from the Bears side as the Jaguars are giving up more than 20 points per game.
