Can the Patriots cover the spread?

The (4-2) New England Patriots opened as 3-point road favorites against the (3-2) Chicago Bears, per OddsShark, and have quickly increased the spread to 3.5-points. The Patriots have been favored in every game dating back to the 2016 season opener against the Arizona Cardinals, when Tom Brady was suspended and Jimmy Garoppolo was the starter.

The last time Brady was an underdog was week 13 of the 2014 season on the road against the Green Bay Packers.

The Bears are coming off a disappointing loss against the Miami Dolphins, where Brock Osweiler and company ran wild over a once-impressive Bears defense that ranked 1st in DVOA. They will be looking for revenge.

Will they be able to get it against the Patriots? How do you think this game will play out?
