With Ryan Tannehill questionable, point spread shifts heavily toward Bears

The Dolphins are listing quarterback Ryan Tannehill as questionable for today’s game with a right shoulder injury. A whole lot of gamblers seem certain that the injury is worse than the Dolphins are letting on.

Although the Bears opened as one-point favorites they’re now six-point favorites in most sports books. That kind of line movement is very rare, and only happened because a lot of people bet on the Bears.

And why would so many people bet on the Bears? The obvious answer is that those bettors believe Tannehill either isn’t going to play today, or is going to be ineffective because his throwing shoulder is hurt.

If Tannehill can’t go, Brock Osweiler would start and David Fales would back him up. That would be bad news for the Dolphins, and good news for anyone who has money on the Bears at minus-one.

  1. It will be in the 90’s in Miami today, and heat can turn you into a coward, but I just don’t see the Bears losing this one. With or without Tannehill!

  2. 1) I don’t know why. Although 2) I guess when you look at the backups it might be clear.

    Problem is they were never a 3-0 team. I know ignorant (Pats) fans will use it to say “We’re back.” Everyone else was saying, “This isn’t a 3-0 team”. Tannehill is not the answer.

  3. Oh and still don’t believe in the Bears, and I am from Chicago. Mitchell is just not that good. Mack? He is. And yes they won a SB with a bad offense and a great D. Think this is just a different league. Let me know when you can hit a QB. Or a WR. Or anyone else. TB12 GOAT? SMH. Not even the best in this league but put him against Hampton, Singletary, etc.

    Notice I don’t mention Jeff Fisher.

  4. As long as Gase keeps calling the offensive plays, OL not reinforced with real intentions, and Tanny at the helm—they will wither into oblivion. This comes from a guys that vehemently defended the fins until last week. There I said it!!!!

    What happened to the Dolphins backup QB from 2 years ago ?
    He was as good as Tannehill
    ——————

    Matt Miller. No. He wasn’t.
    He would throw the ball up which Tannehill doesn’t do. He looked pathetic against Pittsburg in the playoffs and last season when starting, he was meh.

  6. Ha ha hope you all had your money on the Bears. Where was Khalil Mack this afternoon, was he out there???
    So much for all the knowalls. You all got it wrong.

    Someone on here said Mack would sack Osweiler 80 Times today!,!,, that’s a bit excessive he didn’t get sacked once for your info.
