Phil Sears-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Jacksonville Jaguars are not the popular pick to win their Week 5 matchup against the Chicago Bears. The line on this game has the Jaguars a seven-point underdog, and that is after it opened at three points favoring the Bears.

Nearly all of the experts who pick the games have the Bears defeating the Jaguars. Over at ESPN, the six who have made their picks have the Bears winning, with only Adam Schefter going against the grain and taking the Jaguars to pull off the upset.

The NFL experts over at CBSSports.com have seven of eight going with the Bears, and the one who differs is Josh
Katzowitz. The experts over at Yahoo! feel that the Bears are going to get the win.

The computer simulator AccuScore provides some more detailed information, and they have the Bears winning 75 percent of the time. The average victory is Chicago 22.9 to Jacksonville's 14.1.
