Betting Odds: Kansas City Chiefs at Chicago Bears (-2)

  • Kansas City Chiefs Moneyline: +112
  • Chicago Bears Moneyline: -132
  • Over/Under: 46.5
  • Kickoff: Aug. 25, 2018 – 1 p.m. ET

Kansas City Chiefs

Patrick Mahomes’ limitless arm strength has overshadowed his more-accomplished teammate from the 2017 draft: Kareem Hunt. Last season’s rushing champion is truly coming off one of the better rookie seasons the league has ever seen.

Andy Reid said at the NFL combine in February that the Chiefs need to “expand on (Hunt’s) role in the pass game.” Early indications are that Reid will do just that, as Hunt has caught three passes in fewer than 30 minutes of preseason action, and the Chiefs released incumbent change-of-pace back Charcandrick West.

Chicago Bears

Mitchell Trubisky has averaged only five yards per attempt with a modest 61.1% completion rate after 18 preseason pass attempts in the Bears’ new-look offense. He’s been a popular offseason breakout candidate thanks to his improved weaponry and coaching staff, but he’ll still need to prove that last season’s debacle was a fluke. Overall, the 2017 No. 2 overall pick threw the fewest touchdowns (7) among 38 rookie quarterbacks to start at least 12 games since 1992.

The public seems to be counting on a revenge-fueled shootout between Reid and Matt Nagy, as 59% of tickets and 85% of the money have backed the over (per our Live NFL Odds page).
