Why bet on the Chicago Bears to beat the Miami Dolphins
The Chicago Bears are coming off a bye week that was preceded by 48-10 blowout of the Bucs. At 3-1, the Bears sit atop the AFC North.
This is the first of four straight games vs. AFC East teams for the Bears. Chicago hosts the Patriots and Jets in back-to-back games before traveling to Buffalo to face the Bills.
Chicago’s defense lead by Khalil Mack will keep the Dolphins from sustaining long drives. The Bears will be a smart bet as long as QB Mitchell Trubisky and the offense can take advantage of what their defense gives them.
Chicago has been favored for four games in a row, the first time that’s happened since 2012.
Why bet on the Miami Dolphins to beat the Chicago Bears
The Miami Dolphins are happy to be home. After winning their first three games of the season, the Dolphins have lost back-to-back road games to the Pats and Bengals in embarrassing fashion. The Dolphins are 12-5 in games played at Hard Rock Stadium during Adam Gase’s three seasons as the team’s coach. Is that enough to warrant a Miami Dolphins ATS bet?
ATS Pick Chicago Bears vs. Miami Dolphins
The Bears defense is playing better and better as the season continues. They will light up the stat sheet versus a Dolphins offense that has scored just two TDs in its last two games. The Dolphins defense isn’t a slouch either, allowing an average of only two TDs over five games this year. Bet the Under.
Furthermore, I am betting that Bears’ elite defense will stop Miami. QB Ryan Tannehill is not playing like a franchise QB, turning the ball over in critical situations.
