Chicago Bears 2012 Odds and Outlook

August 10, 2012

The Chicago Bears’ players, coaches, management and fans are tired of the team being the best in the league for the first eight weeks and returning to mediocrity thereafter. The Bears last season were just 8-8 following a trip to the NFC Championship. They started the season 7-3 and ended it 1-5. Injuries are often times used as an excuse, but the Bears lost starting quarterback Jay Cutler and Matt Forte their starting running back.

Those two alone were worth at least two or three more victories and a trip to the postseason. With Cutler healthy, he will be able to target weapons like Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffry a second round draft pick. Michael Bush was picked up in the free agent market to help Forte, as he was injured and you never know when that might happen again.   

A change to their offensive outlook from new coordinator Mike Tice will serve the team well. Under Mike Martz’s offensive reign, things were not bad, but the personnel on Chicago better fits Tice’s style. On defense, if they can maintain a pass rush throughout the season, the defense could be one of the five best in the league. However, if is a small word with a big meaning, especially with the way the team performed last season.

The Bears are expected to make the postseason this year by odds makers. However, they are favored to win under 9.5 at odds of -135. The Bears are +375 to win their NFC North Division. They also have odds of +1000 to win the NFC Championship and play for the Super Bowl title. The latest odds for the Bears to win the Super Bowl are 20/1. Thus far, the Bears have been favored in 11 of their first 15 games by odds makers.
