The 2020 Chicago Bears have “bounceback year” written all over them.
So do not be surprised if the Bears wind up as a trendy pick as we get closer to the start of the season.
Bettors who believe in Chicago’s bounceback potential should take a look at the futures odds right now as you could make a boatload backing Matt Nagy’s crew.
Bears betting odds to win Super Bowl, NFC North
The Bears are +3300 to win next season’s Super Bowl right now at FanDuel Sportsbook.
A whopping 15 teams are ahead of them with lower odds.
Chicago is +3500 at DraftKings Sportsbook. And they are 33/1 to win it all right now at Bet365.
These odds are likely so high because of the Bears’ hefty competition within the division. The Vikings are +1800 to win it all at FanDuel and are +2000 at DraftKings.
The Packers, meanwhile, are +2200 at FanDuel and are +1800 at DraftKings.
Division winner odds might be the way to go right now if you’re not sold on Chicago reaching the ultimate mountain top.
Chicago is +500 to win the NFC North right now at DraftKings. The Packers and Vikings have substantially lower odds at +135 and +140 respectively.
That little QB issue
The Bears defense is expected to again be outstanding in 2020.
The big issue, of course, is at the quarterback position.
Mitchell Trubisky was injured in Week 4 of the 2019 season against the Vikings with a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder. But even a fully healthy Trubisky is on shaky ground in Chicago.
Bears general manager Ryan Pace is expected to add a quarterback in free agency to challenge Trubisky for the starting job this summer.
Sports Illustrated recently touted Teddy Bridgewater and Marcus Mariota as potential fits in the Windy City.
