NFL Preseason Predictions: Will Cardinals cover spread vs. Bears? 8/19/17

Will the Cardinals cover the small point spread tonight when they host the Bears at 10:00PM ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Cardinals are now 3-point home favorites to beat the Bears after opening as a 3.5-point favorite. As for the total, the number hit the board at 41 but has been dropped down to 40.5.

CHICAGO BEARS: Running back Jordan Howard will not play in tonight's preseason game after suffering a minor abrasion in Friday's walkthrough. He won't travel to Arizona but should practice next week. Meanwhile, Mitchell Trubisky knows he still has a lot of work to do despite impressing in his preseason debut. He completed 18-of-25 passes for 166 yards and a touchdown, but spoke of making too many mistakes in practice this week.

ARIZONA CARDINALS: Bruce Arians continued to call out his receiver corps this week. He noted that he doesn't expect rookie Chad Williams to have an early-season role and questioned John Brown's place on the team if he is not able to overcome his sickle-cell issues, which remain an issue for the receiver. Arians also said that Jaron Brown is the Cardinals' No. 2 receiver right now.

OUR PREDICTION: The Cardinals will either come out motivated following Arians' comments this week or they'll be disjointed. I'm betting on the former. Mike Glennon was horrendous last week versus Denver's first-team defense and things don't get that much easier tonight against Arizona. Trubisky was impressive, but I wouldn't be surprised if he played more like a rookie tonight. I'll side with the home squad.
