Chicago at St. Louis

1 unit on Chicago +3 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: LOSS
Chicago and Lovie Smith showed me someting on Monday night as they came back to beat the Dolphins in a high-scoring affair. This is a team, after the season they had last year, that is in desperate need of some confidence. They got a boost in their first win and I think that carries over to this week with the shortened break. Mike Martz is another coach who doesn't play to win in the preseason. He's 2-6 the last two years and 7-14 since taking over the head coaching position for the Rams. Coaches who lose most of their preseason games are terrible bets as favorites. Glad to get points to boot. One star on Chicago.
