Miami at Chicago
Saturday 08/14 01:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Game Total OVER 35.5 -108 (risk 1 to return 1.93) RESULT: LOSS
Miami has a good QB rotation for Week 1 of the preseason with Tua Tagovailoa and Jacoby Brissett. Last season, the defense was in the middle of the pack in yards allowed at #22 in pass defense. That defense will get tested against Chicago coach Matt Nagy, who is on a 7-0-1 run OVER the total in the preseason. In his last preseason in 2019, Bears games saw 36, 45, 44, 34 points scored, and in 2018 their last four August games totaled 57, 47, 47, and 55 points. Also, Chicago has an excellent veteran QB rotation this preseason with Andy Dalton and Nick Foles as they work in rookie Justin Fields, the 11th pick in the draft. Play the OVER.
