The sports betting experts are not expecting a lot from the Buffalo Bills, but the Chicago Bears are a different story. With a new and improved Jay Cutler reporting for camp, the Bears may finally find that success they have been looking for.

Why Bet On The Bills

The Buffalo Bills made some pretty good personnel moves in the offseason, and then they made some moves that could only be classified as interesting. The Bills took big defensive lineman Marcell Dareus in the first round of the 2011 draft and then picked up former Green Bay Packers linebacker Nick Barnett in free agency. The Bills had the worst run defense in the league last year and one of the worst passing defenses. Those two players should help slow down the opposition’s running game and put some pressure on the quarterback. Now the Bills just need to figure out what they are doing in the defensive secondary.

Buffalo picked up all-purpose offensive star Brad Smith from the New York Jets and promptly put him in the quarterback rotation. What the Bills do not need is more instability at quarterback. Many fans were hoping that Buffalo would allow last year’s starter Ryan Fitzpatrick to keep his job and start to give the Bills’ offense some identity. Good decisions have not been part of the Buffalo game plan the past few years and many Bills fans are waiting to see what happens on offense.

Why Bet On The Bears

There are a lot of good reasons to bet on the Bears in this game. Jay Cutler reported to training camp lighter, in good shape and sporting some new mechanics in his throw that needed work. With Cutler taking his position as an sportsbook promo NFL quarterback seriously, the rest of the Chicago offense should fall into place. Veteran wide receiver Roy Williams, who was released by the Cowboys, should help to bring some stability to the Bears offense. If running back Matt Forte can stay healthy this season, it should be a good year for Chicago.

On defense, the Bears will be dominating again. Last season, the addition of defensive lineman Julius Peppers was as dominating as everyone had hoped it would be. The only weak spot on the Chicago defense is their secondary. Since Chicago made very few personnel changes in this offseason, it will be interesting to see how the defensive secondary holds up.

How The Game Will Play Out

A preseason game is all about depth and the desire of the second and third string players. The coaches want to see their teams play well, but they are mostly interested in finding players that can contribute when the regular season starts. The Bills are not very deep in any position while the Bears offer some stability in its second-string defense. The thing that Chicago head coach Lovie Smith will be watching is to see who wants to play on special teams and which players will make the second-string offense.
