The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are across the pond this weekend as they "host" the Chicago Bears at Wembley Stadium in London. Neither of these teams has really flown out of the gates this year, so this should be a pretty difficult game to pick. Throw in the fact that the cross-Atlantic trip can mess with even the best teams, and you have a game that could confound most oddsmakers. Here is what our partners at OddsShark have to say about the matchup.
The NFL goes back to London for the fifth straight year and two teams coming off statement wins are making the trek to Wembley Stadium. The Bucs arrived Monday and will run practices during the week while the Bears arrive Friday. Tampa Bay came up with a huge 26-20 win over the Saints last week, while the Bears crushed the Vikings. But Chicago encounters an unfavorable trend heading into their bye week - they are just 2-7 ATS in the past nine seasons before a bye week.
