Previewing The Betting Odds For The Bears 2021 Season

  • The Bears have +500 odds to win the NFC North and are longshots to win the Super Bowl (+6000).

CHICAGO – The Chicago Bears got a new lease on life when Justin Fields fell to them in the 2021 NFL Draft as they have played the same tune for the past few years – mediocre offense, solid defense.

They were 22nd in points scored and 14th in points against, with about an average strength of schedule.

The Bears finished 8-8 on the season.

Chicago Bears Offseason Additions

  • QB Justin Fields
  • WR Marquise Goodwin
  • WR Damiere Byrd
  • OT Teven Jenkins
  • DT Mike Pennel
  • OL Tyrone Wheatley
  • TE Jake Butt
  • LB Alec Ogletree
  • OT Jason Peters

Fields seems like a great fit with Matt Nagy’s system, as he is familiar with zone-read concepts from his time at Ohio State, and his athleticism means he’s a must-cover threat in the play-action game.

Chicago Bears 2021 Odds Breakdown

The Bears are not expected to make much noise this season, as they’re likely going to be rolling out either a rookie in Fields or a low-ceiling veteran in Andy Dalton at the QB position.

In terms of Super Bowl odds, they’re in the bottom half of the league at +6000.

They still have a fairly decent defense, with some legitimately great talent on it in the form of S Eddie Jackson and EDGE Khalil Mack, who was one of only 20 players to finish the year with nine or more sacks.

NFC North Division Winner Odds

  • Green Bay Packers -160
  • Minnesota Vikings +250
  • Chicago Bears +500
  • Detroit Lions +2800

Overall, the Bears have the potential to be a surprising team, but they play in a tough division, and overcoming the Green Bay Packers will be a big ask.
