Two weeks remain until the games count, but preseason matters to the betting community. This week is where teams show most of their hand, and starters will play the most reps. If you want to know what Las Vegas thinks of your favorite team, this week's odds will give you a good idea.
In what could be a postseason preview, the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers are meeting at Lambeau Field. It's interesting to see that the Packers aren't getting the obligatory three-point bump at home, instead they're getting a point. Questions about Green Bay's offensive line likely play a role, matched up against a talented Seattle pass rush.
An opportunistic Chicago Bears' defense is primed to take advantage of a shaky Oakland Raiders' quarterback position. Matt Flynn has been the team's best option, but its depth has been poor -- which could have a huge influence on Friday's game. Jay Cutler has been far from dominant, but there's still faith he can be the guy. The Bears' are scoring 25 points per game this preseason, while Oakland are scoring 19.5. This makes the -3.5 line in favor of Chicago clear.
