Super Bowl Path: Chicago Bears Future Betting Odds

Bears' Rebuild Continues

It’s probably going to be another rough season for the Chicago Bears, who went 6-11 in 2021 and are expected to struggle once again. They have a new coach in Matt Eberflus but have a suspect offense and young defense. Chicago also has to contend with the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North as well as the Detroit Lions, who seem to be closer to relevance than the Bears are. There’s no wonder why the Chicago Bears future betting odds are so pessimistic.

The Bears did eclipse their regular season wins ‘over’ in 2021, which was set at 5.5 wins. That number has inched up a little bit for the 2022 campaign but the over is a heavily juiced +125, indicating how Vegas isn’t particularly confident in Chicago winning seven games. The Chicago Bears stats last season weren’t that bad on defense yet, with the Bears boasting one of the league’s worst offenses, Eberflus has his work cut out for him if Chicago is going to be in the Wild Card mix.

Chicago Bears Future Betting Odds to Make the Playoffs

Fields Needs to Carry Offense

Justin Fields

  • Passing Yards: 3250.5 (-115o)
  • Passing Touchdowns: 18.5 (-115o)
  • Interceptions: 14.5 (-110o)
  • Rushing Yards: 525.5 (-115o)
  • Rushing Touchdowns: 3.5 (-140o)

The Bears’ struggles coincided with the struggles of Justin Fields, who had a brutal rookie campaign. He threw just seven passing touchdowns compared to 10 interceptions and missed five games due to rib and ankle injuries (as well as a Covid-19 diagnosis). Basically, nothing went right for Fields, who did add 420 rushing yards and a pair of scores. It didn’t help that both David Montgomery (his top running back) and Allen Robinson (his top wide receiver) had to deal with injuries as well.

The NFL future odds like Fields’ chances to somewhat bounce back in his sophomore season and, despite the Bears losing Robinson and not having a ton of playmakers along with a mediocre offensive line, that’s probably a smart assumption to make. Fields was a winner in college and he had everything stacked against him in 2021. Now, he has a big coaching upgrade in Eberflus over Matt Nagy and should be able to cut down on his turnovers while improving his effectiveness both through the air and on the ground.

Montgomery’s Health is Key

David Montgomery

  • Rushing Yards: 900.5 (-115o)
  • Rushing Touchdowns: 6.5 (-115o)

Even though he missed four games in 2021, David Montgomery had another solid season as the Bears’ lead back and he looks like a good bet to perform well in 2022. As is always the case with Montgomery, he just needs to stay healthy. He ran for 889 yards in his rookie season and then 1,070 yards (with eight touchdowns) in his sophomore campaign before notching 849 yards and seven scores last year. But, he did that in just 13 games so, if he stayed on the field for the entire year, he likely would have blown past 1,000 yards.

901 yards and seven touchdowns are both very manageable figures for Montgomery to hit in terms of NFL future odds. Despite the Bears likely playing from behind for much of the season, he’ll get a lot of touches and will be relied upon in the red zone often as well. Consider taking each of his overs.

Receiving Corps’ Depth is Lacking

Darnell Mooney

  • Receptions: 75.5 (-125)
  • Receiving Yards: 950.5 (-115o)
  • Receiving Touchdowns: 5.5 (-130o)

Second-year breakouts, especially from late-round draft picks, are always fun and Darnell Mooney’s was no different in 2021. The former fifth-round pick exploded for 81 catches, 1,055 yards, and four touchdowns last year and established himself as Fields’ favorite target. Now that Allen Robinson is in Los Angeles, Mooney is unquestionably Chicago’s No. 1 receiver. The Chicago Bears future betting odds like him to be able to repeat his production from 2021 even though it’s tough to take the step up to facing elite cornerbacks every game.

If there is someone to follow up that great year with another one, it’s Mooney, though. He hasn’t missed a game yet in his NFL career and his athleticism allows him to get open (and catch passes) in ways that other receivers just aren’t able to. It also helps to have the trust of the franchise quarterback which he certainly does.

Cole Kmet

  • Receptions: 59.5 (-115o)
  • Receiving Touchdowns: 3.5 (+110o)

Chicago’s 2020 draft class keeps bearing fruit on offense as evidenced by Cole Kmet, who — like Mooney — had an impressive second season following a relatively disappointing rookie year. He caught 60 passes for 612 yards but did not reach the end zone, something that is sure to change in 2022. Kmet has great size and, as a big target Fields can turn to in all game situations, he should continue to get even more touches.

There’s great value on Kmet posting four or more touchdowns after he went scoreless in 2021 so that’s a smart bet in terms of Chicago Bears future betting odds. Touchdowns can be extremely variable from year to year and that’s why it’s always a good idea to zig when the touchdown odds zag because there can be a lot of value. That’s the case here for sure.
