Football Odds at Get That Bet — Dolphins on the Rebound as They Face Bears

 

The Miami Dolphins suffered a very heart-breaking defeat last Sunday, and it was a very difficult week for the coaching staff, which had to answer many questions. Is this team in any kind of position to go to Soldier Field and win a game against the Chicago Bears? That is what Get That Bet patrons are wondering as these clubs lineup in football betting action at 1 PM ET.

The Bears are coming off a very encouraging effort, as they scored a two-touchdown victory at the Georgia Dome against the Atlanta Falcons. Jay Cutler and 381 yards in the air, and his two stud receivers – Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffrey – combined for 249 of those yards.

Miami played well against the Green Bay Packers, but when they needed to stop Green Bay on the final drive, it seems they imploded a little bit, as quarterback Aaron Rodgers got a key first down on a play where he faked spiking the ball to stop the clock. Then the Dolphins called a timeout with six seconds left, as the Packers were actually out of timeouts, and that appeared to help Green Bay execute the touchdown play that won the game.

Currently the Dolphins are 2-3 straight-up and 2-2-1 against the football pointspread. Chicago is 3-3, both straight-up and against the number.

In the football odds posted on this game at Get That Bet (http://www.getthatbet.com), the Bears are laying a field goal:

There were a lot of things the media wanted to talk about with Miami’s coaches this week. There was one particular situation, a third down with nine yards to go and three minutes left on the clock, where Joe Philbin admitted that he was a little scared to throw the football, for fear his quarterback would make a mistake. That raised some eyebrows. There was also a lot of accountability defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle had to accept for his team not being ready to defend the Packers on that fake spike play. Needless to say, when you have your own players calling you out for making bad defensive calls, as was the case with Philip Wheeler, who had to defend Green Bay tight end Andrew Quarless on that final play, you may have a problem in the locker room.

Get That Bet patrons can’t really come up with an explanation as to how a Chicago defense that is supposed to be in tatters held Matt Ryan to just 19 completions in 37 attempts last Sunday. But they are certainly happy about it. Willie Young has seven sacks, and Mark Trestman will count on him to put some pressure on Ryan Tannehill, who is still a work in progress (231 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions last week).

Knowshon Moreno is back in action for the Dolphins, although he only had eighteen yards on the ground last week. If he gets back into the swing of things a little more, he can make for a nice 1-2 combination with Lamar Miller, who has played well in his absence. By the way, the Get That Bet audience may be interested in the “technical” side of things here, which reveals that Chicago has covered just four of its last 15 games at home against the football betting odds. Can they change that around? Well, they had the ball for 36 minutes against Atlanta, and it seems as if Matt Forte is on a bit of a run, with 22 receptions in the last two games. Let’s see what kind of defensive calls Coyle makes this week.
