Colts vs Bears pick against the spread: Do you believe in Nick Foles?
When the schedule comes out, it is normal to scan the list of the NFL picks against the spread for every game. But some games have more storylines than other games. This is the case when the Chicago Bears host the Indianapolis Colts. The biggest story in this game is at quarterback as Nick Foles is now in charge of getting wins for the Bears. The full betting preview and Colts vs Bears pick against the spread is an easy one to make.

Point spread: Colts -2.5
Point total: 44.5
Moneyline: Colts -136, Bears +112
The biggest news coming out of the Windy City is not that the Bears are 3-0, but they are making a change at quarterback. Coach Matt Nagy announces that Nick Foles will be the starter for Week 4 against the Colts. Foles led the team to victory and the change is for the better. This video gives just one example of how the Bears will benefit from having Foles under center.
Same down, same receiver, same play. Two different quarterbacks. Two very different results.
Mitchell Trubisky gets great protection, sets his feet, and misses Miller.
Foles gets hit as he throws, but finds Miller in stride for the TD.

Colts QB Phillips River is looking comfortable in Frank Reich’s offense, but he did not have to do much work against a lifeless Jets team. He completed over 80 percent of his passes, although they still have some issues on offense in the red zone. The Colts went run-only in the 4th quarter for the game out of hand. The challenge will be greater this week as Rivers will be tested against a ferocious Bears defense.
The betting public does not believe in the Bears. The point spread moved from Colts PK to Colts -3 at some of the top sportsbooks. This is puzzling since the Colts are 0-3-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last 4 road games. They are also 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games as a road favorite and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
The Bears are 11-3-1 ATS in their last 15 games as a home underdog and they are the best bet in this game.
