Dolphins vs. Bears NFL Preseason Betting Info, Game Odds

Last year the Miami Dolphins generated plenty of Super Bowl best betting hype.  Tua Tagovailoa’s arrival as their quarterback of the future reignited fan passion.  Also impressing long-suffering Miami fans is third-year head coach Brian Flores.  Tagovailoa and Flores are seen as the terrific tandem that will restore Dolphin glory.  In like manner are the Bears experiencing their own version of Miami’s 2020 preseason.  First-round draft pick Justin Fields has sparked the hopes of the Windy City.  But veteran journeyman Andy Dalton opens the season as the top Bears quarterback.

Miami Dolphins at Chicago Bears CashBet Wagering Analysis

To begin with, the Dolphins are generating a lot of sportsbook futures activity.  With the Patriots dynasty over and only the Bills to overcome, gamblers see realizable value.  Miami barely missed the playoffs in 2020.  Cause by playing in the much tougher AFC.  As an example, the Bears made the NFC playoffs with two fewer wins than the Dolphins.  Tua sparks public betting action.  Since he led Alabama to a national championship game comeback win, Tua has been a national sensation.  Only his tendency to get hurt has some gamblers concerned. Miami’s defense became a 2020 asset too.

Defense is rarely a problem for the Bears.  Gamblers like betting Chicago games under the total.  Most important of all for fans and bettors is public enemy Number One is gone.  Quarterback Mitch Trubisky lost all credibility over a horrible two-season stretch.  Meanwhile, Chicago’s other quarterback flop, Nick Foles, is down to third-string.  Bears fans are eager for Justin Fields to start.  Thus, Andy Dalton can expect a chorus of boos at each mistake.  Many gamblers will utilize live betting based on who is playing quarterback when.  Undertakers desire a low-scoring preseason opener.

Miami No Longer a Vice

A clear difference in betting on Super Bowl expectations can be seen in Miami.  One year ago, there was a lot of hope for the Dolphins.  Now there are high expectations for the Fish.  But will that create additional pressure for Tua and the rest of the team.  Further, none of Miami’s opponents will be taking them lightly this season.  The ambush factor is gone.

Monsters of the Midway Find New Fields of Dreams

Head coach Matt Nagy arrived at the Bears after serving as Chiefs offensive coordinator.  Nagy knows a few things about quarterbacks.  Fashion his realization that rushing a rookie can have disastrous consequences with the NFL betting odds.  But Nagy will be under fire to eventually play Justin Fields.  Certainly, Fields will get his share of preseason playing time.

As was previously noted, the Dolphins are solid NFL gambling values in the preseason.  Counter to that is a Bears team that struggles to get the exhibition game cash.  Too much public hype on Fields will worsen the Bears’ price.
