NFL Week 3 picks, predictions:

The Arizona Republic: Bears 20, Texans 14

Jeremy Cluff writes: "The Bears were no match for the Green Bay Packers on the road in Week 2 after beating the San Francisco 49ers at home in Week 1. They'll get another home win here."

Draft Kings: Bears will cover against Texans in Week 3

Erik Buchinger writes: "These are two incredibly bad offenses, and it took everything to keep me away from betting the under 38 here. This is a fairly good situational spot for the Bears as they return home, while the Texans get set to play their second consecutive road game. The Texans offense failed to reach 300 yards of offense in their first two games, and it’s no guarantee they can accomplish that feat at Soldier Field. Let’s go with Chicago by more than a field goal."

Fan Duel: go with the Bears to cover vs. Texans

Adam Taylor McKillop writes: "Chicago is a better team, especially on the defensive side of the ball. After a gritty Week 1 win over the San Francisco 49ers, the Bears rank 4th in Football Outsiders' pass-defense DVOA metric. The front seven didn't perform nearly as well, but a backfield of Rex Burkhead and Dameon Pierce doesn't scare me. Even though -120 isn't a great figure, grab Chicago at just 2.5 points while you can before that number increases to 3 or 3.5 points."
