NFL betting picksThe Bills vs Bears odds makers at the sportsbook have made the common three-point spread on this contest, in which the Bears will finally untie the ribbons off their shiny new present. Jay Cutler will take the field for the first time in a Bears uniform, and he’ll do something that will regularly happen now that he leads the team: win.

Bills vs Bears odds: Bears -3

  • PICK: Bear -3

Bills vs Bears odds maker breakdown: Offense

The Bills will be in their second preseason game so some of their starters might play a bit longer, but that might not mean much considering they were blown out by the Tennessee Titans in the Hall of Fame game. The Bills offense clearly has some issues, and they could have similar problems against the Bears front lines.

The Bears offense has lots of new weaponry, and now that Cutler is at the helm, online betting fans know that they’ll move the ball more efficiently. With Matt Forte, Adrian Peterson, Garrett Wolfe and Kevin Jones in the backfield, the Bears have plenty of depth and will run the ball well all game.

Betting Edge: Bears

Bills vs Bears odds maker breakdown: Defense

The Bills defense looks like it has some good parts on paper, but the odds makers don’t trust them so much after their preseason opening performance. The defense is young and seemingly lacks experience and chemistry.

On the flip side, the Bears have neither of those problems. With a competent offense to finally back them, the Bears defense should be rejuvenated. Look for them to play with lots of zeal in the preseason opener. While the Bears have many veterans who probably won’t play long, they know how to cultivate defensive talent and have a crop of good young backups.

Bills vs Bears odds maker breakdown: Special Teams

The special teams games are even as both teams have solid units all the way around. While the Bears have a slight edge in returns with Devin Hester - though Terrence McGee and Roscoe Parrish don’t lag far behind - the Bills have the better kicking games with Rian Lindell and Brian Moorman.

Betting Edge: Even

Bills vs Bears odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries

The Bears will be without starting cornerback Charles Tillman (back). Aside from that, both teams are fairly healthy.

Betting Edge: Bills

Bills vs Bears betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick

NFL betting sharps should side with the Chicago Bears in this game as Cutler – and the new look Bears – will put more effort to get the win. The Bills should be sharper after having played a game but they are still on the road against a better team.

STAN’S PICK: Bears -3
