An absolutely easy one here. The Bears and the Raiders both have a history of playing close games in the preseason, and we have to think that this is going to be another one of those games which is decided by fewer than 10 points one way or the other. Both of these offenses have a heck of a lot to prove, and the idea that either is going to get that far away from the other in this one is a bit ludicrous in our eyes. Thus far in the preseason, the Bears have played games of 41 and 61 points, and both games were decided by seven points or fewer. The Raiders have played games to 36 and 48 points, and both games were decided by eight points or fewer. So why divert from that trend? We believe that teasing any of the sides of this game will turn out to be good enough to win, but in this case, the easiest thing to do is the old standby of taking the underdog and the ‘over’. It would have cashed in all four instances in games which these two teams have played in the preseason, and each of those games would have been comfortable winners, and we expect no less this time around as well.
