Wheel bearing noise?

My wife’s 2014 Grand Cherokee has some howling going on. It’s alignment is in spec, and the tires are brand new. It’s a speed sensitive “howl” that is loud enough that the transmission sounds like it needs to shift (it doesn’t, just stating a representation of the noise). The Jeep also has a whopping 27k on it.

I’ve got a dealer appt for it in a couple of weeks. I suspect it’s the wheel bearings, which are covered by the Mopar Protection Plan we bought when we purchased the Jeep new. I’ve jacked up the front, and didn’t notice any signficant play on either wheel. Any other guesses as to what it could be? I’d say I’m 99% set on the bearings.
