The Raiders defeated the Indianapolis Colts at 31-24 and surprised everyone and are now at 2-2 for the NFL season. The Bears have also won their last 3 games and have a solid defense which has not given more than 15 points in any of the games. Here are the Raiders vs Chicago Bears Week 5 predictions and betting odds.
Raiders Offense vs Chicago Bears Defense
The Raiders have won both of their games with their strong offensive line led by the starting quarterback Derek Carr. The starter QB was amazing in Week 1, completing 22 of 26 passes in a 24-16 win over the Broncos. Carr also posted a 105.4 passer rating in the Week 4 game and the rushing attack of Raiders have carried for 188 yards on 5.9 yards per attempt.
We know there are levels to competition.
If Carr carves up the #Bears D w/precision, he’ll get more props from the so-called ✌🏾haters✌🏾
Carr isn’t as bad as some #Raiders fans tweet, but it’s premature to beat your chest over today’s game with tougher challenges on the horizon.

What makes Raiders vs Chicago Bears more interesting is one side has a strong offense and another side has a strong defense. The Bears have not let any of the opposing team score more than 17 points in their last nine games and even Aaron Rodgers from the Packers was stopped at 10 points in the 2019 NFL season opener.
Raiders vs Chicago Bears: Betting Odds and Predictions
Raiders vs Chicago Bears total score won’t go much higher given the balance between the two sides. The total on the Sunday Week 5 game could be around 40.5 and it would be a bit hard for the Raiders to score as the Bears have only given an average of 6.8 points per game in the 2019 NFL season. Derek Carr and Baker Mayfield will be the main highlights of the game and the QB which performs better can lead his time to the victory.
Betting Odds: Raiders vs Chicago Bears(-4.5)
Prediction: Chicago over Oakland, 17-10
