With Tom Brady, 44, aiming for an eighth Super Bowl championship, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came out of the gates hot in 2021, winning five of their first six. On Sunday, Brady and the Buccaneers host the Chicago Bears (3-3) and rookie quarterback Justin Fields. It’s a limited Chicago offensive squad trying to lead the ball and play solid defense, but they’ll have their work cut out for them against a top-three Buccaneers attack and the No. 1 run defense in the NFL. In some markets, you can stream the game on Paramount +.
Kick-off is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Tampa Bay is an 11.5 point favorite in recent Buccaneers vs Bears odds according to Caesars Sportsbook. The overage for total points scored is 47. In some markets, Sunday’s game can be seen live on CBS and streamed live on Paramount + with their must-have Premium package.

NFL Week 7 pick for Bears vs. Buccaneers
Before connecting to the game Buccaneers vs. Sunday Bears, you must see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up nearly $ 7,700 per 100 players on the NFL’s top picks since its inception over six years ago. He enjoyed a 24-14 sizzle over the NFL’s top-rated picks last season, grossing over $ 800. The model also enters Week 7 of the 2021 season on an incredible 125-85 run on the NFL’s top picks stretching back to the 2017 season.
The model has also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on NFL direct picks and has beaten over 94% of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that time. Whoever followed him is very high.
For Bears vs. Buccaneers, the model backs the Bears to cover the road underdogs at 11.5 points. Despite going 5-1 this season, the Buccaneers have been a disappointment for their fans. They are only 2-4 ATS and have now failed to cover the spread in three of their last four games.
Meanwhile, the Bears are 3-3 ATS, but it took a late Packers touchdown to keep Chicago from covering last week. The Chicago defense has allowed 351 yards or less in its last three games, and is ranked eighth in the NFL in scoring defense and seventh in total defense on Sunday.
The model sees the Bears doing just enough on offense and slowing Brady’s-led offense to stay in the sidelines. He says the Bears cover well over 50% of the sims, with Chicago forcing at least one turnover and registering multiple sacks.
