Okay, I have to say the spread is favoring the Bears in this game here. I think the Bears, since it is preseason and the Chiefs have a lot of adjustments to make will get the win in this game. However, I do not see the Bears covering the spread which is why I am taking the Chiefs to cover the spread. The other thing that I do not see being a big issue here is the fact that neither defense will play that well here as the Bears have too many changes to contain a changing Chiefs offense.
