Denver Broncos vs Chicago Bears Thursday NFL Pre-Season Betting Action

Bears Host Broncos to Open Pre-Season Slate

As the NFL pre-season gets underway, the Bears are playing host to the Broncos at Soldier Field, which looks weird not covered in snow. This game is going to be one of the most-watched of the night as Manning debuts for the Bears’ opponent. Look for the Bears defense to get tested early and often by one of the game’s all-time greatest quarterbacks. Despite it being game one, the Bears should be able to get excellent work in tonight with their home crowd looking on.

Manning ERA begins for Broncos Tonight Against the Bears

The Broncos travel to Soldier Field Thursday night in a pre-season matchup that would not matter much if not for the debut of Peyton Manning in a Broncos uniform. The Broncos made the playoffs last year, knocking off the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime in the Wild Card round before losing in the Divisional round to the Patriots 45-10. The Tim Tebow era ended in the off-season with the signing of Manning and the subsequent trade of Tebow to the New York Jets.

In the first week of pre-season games for the NFL, Manning will make his Broncos debut against the vaunted Bears defense. It should be the Bears who win this battle in week one. Online betting at Sportsinteraction.com has a generous moneyline of -140 for the Bears over the Broncos on Thursday night.
