- 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.
