The Denver Broncos and the Chicago Bears will kick off a late Sunday afternoon with the Mile High team still favored by a field goal or so. The Broncos opened the week as three-point favorites, according to Odds Shark, and that line has more or less stayed consistent leading up to Sunday. A couple of odds makers moved the line by half of a point, but that isn't a huge increase in confidence for the Broncos in this game.
Injuries during the week prevented this line from moving in favor of the Broncos. Running back Willis McGahee missed the first two days of practice before returning on Friday. Rookie linebacker Von Miller was limited in practice but is probable for the game. Having Miller back on the field should help the Broncos defense crush a bogged down Chicago offense.
Though the Broncos and Vikings went over the expected points total by around double what was expected, the Bears and the Broncos will likely stay around the 35.5 points spread.
