The former Denver quarterback may have made the right decision though since things don’t look rosy for the Broncos and new head coach Josh McDaniels in NFL betting. NFL football betting does show the Broncos as the small home favorite in this matchup that can be seen on NBC.
NFL betting has Denver a 2.5 point favorite with a total of 38. Cutler is likely to hear a lot of boos on Sunday night but maybe boo birds should direct their attention to McDaniels. He drove away his franchise quarterback and now it looks like the same thing is going to happen to star wide receiver Brandon Marshall. The team suspended Marshall for conduct detrimental to the team and he won’t play on Sunday as NFL betting information indicates. Denver now has quarterback Kyle Orton and his play hasn’t inspired much confidence in NFL betting. There is nothing behind Orton though as NFL betting has it, since backup quarterback Chris Simm is injured. That means that rookie quarterback Tom Brandstater is going to see a lot of time in the second half and it is also possible that newly signed Ingle Martin could play late as NFL football betting has it. The Broncos are also dealing with an injury to running back Knowshon Moreno who they hoped would take the starting running back job this NFL football betting season.
The Bears look to be in a lot better shape in NFL betting. Cutler has been solid in the NFL betting preseason with a new system. NFL betting stats have him 13-of-23 for 185 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Cutler doesn’t seem too concerned about his return trip to Denver. “It doesn’t matter,” Cutler said. “It doesn’t count for anything. We just want to go out there and play well and execute our offense. It’s a preseason game. We can’t make it more than it is. “We’ve just got to prepare ourselves and get ready for a tough team. They’ve got a lot of talent offensively and defensively, so it’s going to be a challenge.” The Bears will be missing cornerback Charles Tillman, and safety Daniel Manning and defensive tackle Dusty Dvoracek this week. Dvoracek is out of the season with a torn ACL.
The Broncos and Bears have met six times in NFL betting preseason history. Denver has won four of the six NFL betting meetings. The last time they played in NFL football betting preseason action was in 2003 when the Broncos won 15-10.
