Chicago Bears Odds

Written by

Change is in the air in the Windy City. Following a disappointing 6-11 season, the Chicago Bears made sweeping changes and hired Matt Eberflus as its new head coach in January. He’ll be tasked with righting the ship for a club that took a step backward one year after sneaking into the postseason.

It’s looking like a transition year in Chicago, and current Super Bowl futures odds reflect that. The team could be battling for the basement in the NFC North. The Bears are currently big home underdogs for the Week 1 opener against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Sept. 11. Here’s a closer look at the latest Bears odds and angles.

Chicago Bears odds: Spread, moneyline and over/under

Week 1 odds: Bears open as sizable home underdogs to 49ers 

Last season, the 10-7 49ers went on a run to the NFC title game before falling to the eventual Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams. The Bears never quite found their footing and struggled to a final mark of 6-11.

Looking ahead to this year, San Francisco is once again a likely NFC contender, while Chicago could be at the back of the pack in the NFC North.

  • Moneyline: As preseason expectations go, the 49ers are looking like a potential playoff team, while the Bears could be in line for a trying season. The Bears moneyline odds reflect that, as San Francisco checks in as a big road favorite (-265) for Week 1 odds.
  • Spread: The Bears are currently 6.5-point underdogs, which is one of the larger spreads of Week 1.
  • Over/Under: With a total of 42.5, this contest projects to be one of the lower-scoring of Week 1 as it’s one of just three games with the over/under set at 42.5 or lower. The 49ers averaged 25.1 points per game a season ago, while the Bears checked in at 18.3.

Chicago Bears odds to win the Super Bowl

Last updated: June 30

DraftKings first posted Super Bowl 57 odds in January. The Bears were originally at +6500. Since then, the number has dropped dramatically to +15000, tied with two other squads and ahead of just one team.

Based on the numbers, it’s looking like a challenging season for the Bears. Sportsbooks do not expect the club to claim a postseason berth, and it projects to be in the bottom half of the NFC North. The Buffalo Bills and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the favorites to win the 2023 Super Bowl.

Chicago Bears futures odds for 2022-23

While dreams of a Super Bowl remain on hold in Chicago, bettors can still get in on the action in other areas of the NFL futures market. Here are the current odds for the Bears and a look at their chances in other popular futures.

Regular season win total

DraftKings Sportsbook: Over 6.5 (-120)Under 6.5 (+100)

The Bears were a six-win team in 2021. Oddsmakers have set the bar slightly above that for the first year of the Eberflus era. Schedule highlights include a visit from the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1 and a road game versus the Dallas Cowboys in late October.                         

Odds to win the NFC North

BetMGM Sportsbook: +900

If the futures market odds are on the money, then the Bears are in line for a third-place finish. The Green Bay Packers are the division favorites at -185, followed by the Minnesota Vikings at +275. The Detroit Lions bring up the rear at +1000.

Odds to win the NFC

Caesars Sportsbook: +5000

As the oddsmakers at Caesars see it, the Bears project to be one of the four worst teams in the NFC this season. The current favorite to take down the conference is the Buccaneers at odds of +375, followed by the Packers at +475.

Justin Fields NFL MVP odds

FanDuel Sportsbook: +7500

Fields is the unquestioned starter as he enters year two. While he could develop into the long-term answer at QB that the Bears have been searching for, the supporting cast doesn’t inspire confidence that a big leap forward is on the immediate horizon.

Season-long player prop odds

DraftKings Sportsbook

  • Most passing yards: Justin Fields +10000
  • Most rushing yards: David Montgomery +4000
  • Most receiving yards: Darnell Mooney +4000

During his rookie year, Fields showed some intriguing flashes, but the weapons aren’t there for a pass-heavy attack. Montgomery and Mooney should see plenty of opportunities, but this isn’t looking like an offense that will light it up.

Chicago Bears news and notes

The Bears shipped Khalil Mack to the Los Angeles Chargers in March and lost Allen Robinson in free agency. The team did add some pieces on defense and to the receiving corps. Notable signings include Justin Jones and Byron Pringle. The team also inked Trevor Siemian to a two-year deal to serve as an experienced backup for Fields.

At the NFL draft, the Bears didn’t have any first-round selections, but they had a pair in round two. The first choice was CB Kyler Gordon, followed by S Jaquan Brisker. The team shifted to offense in round three with the selection of WR Velus Jones Jr. Super Bowl odds for Chicago have dropped since their initial release, possibly an indication of how sportsbooks view the offseason moves.
