Week 1 of the 2021 NFL preseason gets underway in full force on Saturday with 10 matchups stretching from 1 p.m. ET through 10 p.m. ET.
And bettors do not need to look too far down today's slate to find a game with noteworthy market activity.
The first NFL preseason game on Saturday's schedule, Dolphins vs. Bears, has seen some very interesting line movement, and according to our PRO betting tools, sharp betting action is likely the reason.
Let's take a deeper dive into Dolphins vs. Bears line movement and how smart money is forcing adjustments from oddsmakers across the entire market.
Dolphins vs. Bears Pick
The Dolphins vs. Bears over/under opened at 33 at PointsBet and, simply put, professional bettors have steadily pounded this total over the past two weeks.
Action Labs Bet Signals, which track and report sharp betting action in real-time, have tracked five separate smart money indicators on the over, so it's no surprise to see this total now sitting at a consensus of 37 (click here to see updated NFL odds for all of Saturday's preseason games).
However, it's important to note that the last reported influx of wiseguy action on the Dolphins vs. Bears over came at 35.5, so the current price of 37 has basically gone untouched.
In fact, since 37 is a notable number for NFL preseason unders, it'll be interesting to see if professional buyback shows up to push this number back down between now and kickoff.
