The 7-2 Chicago Bears travel to square off against the 6-2-1 San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football this week.

Both the Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers will enter this game without their starting QBs, as both Jay Cutler and Alex Smith are currently dealing with concussions.

Combine that with the fact that the 49ers and Bears own the two best defenses in the NFL so far this season (49ers have allowed 14.1 points per game, while the Bears have allowed 14.8), and you have a recipe for a low-scoring slobber knocker.

Let's look at the odds as of this second (November 19th):

Chicago Bears, +3 1/2, -115
San Francisco 49ers, -3 1/2, -105

Over/Under Line, 34 points

Over 34, -110
Under 34, -110

The money line currently looks like this:

Chicago Bears, +160
San Francisco, -180

The San Francisco 49ers are coming off of a tie against St. Louis, while the Bears are looking to rebound after a home loss to Houston on last week's edition of Sunday Night Football.

This game has major importance for both teams. The Bears are currently sitting at the top of the NFC North at 7-2, but the Packers are right behind them at 7-3. The Packers have won five in a row and are coming together at the right time.

The 49ers, on the other hand, are currently sitting at the top of the NFC West with a record of 6-2-1. The Seahawks are looking to make up some ground, however, as they currently sport a record of 6-4.
