Betting Odds: Chicago Bears at Denver Broncos (-3)

  • Chicago Bears Moneyline: +150
  • Denver Broncos Moneyline: -170
  • Over/Under: 40.5
  • Kickoff: Aug. 18, 2018 — 9:05 p.m. ET

Chicago Bears

When asked why Mitchell Trubisky continues to throw the ball deep instead of checking down, coach Matt Nagy said, “That’s never going to stop. Not in this offense.” Last season the Chiefs were tied for third in 40-plus yards passes; the Bears were tied for 30th.

Trubisky was at least efficient when asked to throw deep, ranking third among all quarterbacks (min. five starts) in QB rating on passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield last season (per PFF).

Denver Broncos

The Broncos have promoted Chad “Swag” Kelly to No. 2 following his electric debut last week. There are more questions than answers along the offensive line and in the backfield, but Case Keenum and Kelly have a legit group of receivers at their disposal with Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and second-round pick Courtland Sutton.

Perhaps the increased optimism for both offenses is responsible for 59% of public tickets and 96% of the money on the over.
