Chicago Bears Super Bowl Betting Odds
The Chicago Bears Super Bowl betting odds are surprising for a team that was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs just a season ago. The Bears are led by Quarterback Mitchell Tribusky and in only his second season, he led the Chicago Bears to their first playoff berth in eight seasons. The Bears have assembled quite the supporting cast around their young quarterback. Head Coach Matt Nagy is one of the best offensive coaches in the NFL and his impact on the Bears offense has been nothing but positive.
On the other side of the ball, the Bears defense was the best in the league a year ago and they should be a top-5 defense again this season. They acquired All-Pro defensive lineman Khalil Mack via trade last year. Mack is easily one of the most disruptive pass rushers in the NFL. It’s easy to see why many bettors select the Chicago Bears as favorites to win the Super Bowl especially if you’ve ever heard the saying “defense wins championships”.
The Chicago Bears Super Bowl 54 betting odds are available at all of the leading online sportsbooks. The Bears kept most of their team from last year intact, but a major difference will be that they traded running back Jordan Howard to the Eagles for a sixth-round pick. However, they already had this in mind when they drafted running back David Montgomery out of Iowa State in the third round of the 2019 Draft.
Montgomery and Tarik Cohen create a dynamic backfield duo that will give many defenses problems during the season. The Chicago Bears Super Bowl 54 betting odds opened at +1200 right before the start of the season, with only the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints, and Los Angeles Rams ahead of them.
The Chicago Bears NFC championship odds are one of the better bets you can make. Their defense can stifle any offense in the NFL, but it’s the offense that must pick up the slack for this team. Year two under Matt Nagy should see this offensive unit improve compared to last season. The Bears won the NFC North last year, which was not an easy task having to play quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers, Kirk Cousins, and Matthew Stafford twice a season.
Despite having to go through a gauntlet of top tier quarterbacks the Bears defense finished with least amount points per game given up at 17.7. Furthermore, the Bears defense also had the most takeaways in the NFL at 36. This Bears defense will be well-tested if they make the playoffs again based on their division alone, but they have the talent to dominate any opponent they face in 2019. The Chicago Bears NFC championship odds opened at +650 before Week 1 of the season kicked off, but time will tell how their Super Bowl betting odds play out overall.
