🏈: NFL Preseason – Chicago Bears Vs Cincinnati Bengals
🏟️: Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati, OH
⏰: Thu. Aug 9, 2018, 7:00 PM
🎰: Cincinnati Bengals -2½ -110 | -135 | U 35½ -110
The Bears will almost assuredly be going all-out to impress first-year head coach Matt Nagy and get their new era started off on the right foot. More importantly, Chicago has an excellent backup quarterback in veteran signal-callers Chase Daniel, who will then be followed by younger veteran Tyler Bray. Chicago is heading in a new direction this season after going 5-11 in 2017 in the final year of the John Fox era. The good news is that 2017 first round draft pick, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky looked pretty damned good more often than not a year ago, without much help on the offensive side of the ball.
After Andy Dalton leaves after one series (if that) the Bengals will turn to veteran backup Matt Barkley with Jeff Driskell and Logan Woodside battling it out for the third-string quarterback job. The good news for Cincinnati heading into this contest is that after starting running back Joe Mixon departs, Cincinnati will turn to Giovani Bernard and Mark Walton, a pair of more than capable running backs. The Bengals are a decent 30-31 in the preseason under longtime head coach Marvin Lewis, although they’ve floundered to an uninspiring 1-3 mark in each of the last two scrimmage seasons.
If this were a regular season matchup, I’d easily go with the Cincinnati Bengals to win and cover the spread, but since it’s not and it’s a game that will come down to the quarterback play of both teams, I’m going to urge you to back the Chicago Bears to get the win and ATS cover, based solely on the fact that Chase Daniel and to a lesser degree, Tyler Bray, will outplay their counterparts in this preseason opener.
