Denver at Chicago

2 units on Game Total OVER PICK (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The Chicago Bears struggled offensively last year, so they brought in Mike Tice to coordinate and give the offense a boost. They also brought in Jeremy Bates who tutored Cutler when he was thriving in Denver. Those changes will try to show their salt and leave their mark early, so look for the bears to play aggressive on offense. The new offensive personnel want to put an immediate signature on this team. Denver will have a totally different look on offense with Peyton Manning at QB, and they have been working a lot on the no-huddle offense, which is going to speed this game up. John Fox is 7-3 OVER in the preseason in game ones while the Bears are 6-1 OVER in their last seven preseason openers. Look for this game to be more offensive than expected, and play on the OVER.
