2022 CHICAGO BEARS BETTING ODDS, PREDICTIONS, PREVIEW
The Bears finished 3rd in the NFC North with a record of 6-11 SU last season, which was a bit of a disappointment after posting a solid 3-2 start to rookie QB Justin Fields tenure, however, their playoff hopes were incredibly short-lived thanks to a miserable 3-9 skid down the stretch.
The jury is still out on Fields, but last year wasn’t exactly promising for Chicago’s young signal caller, considering the Bears’ offense ranked 27th in scoring and 24th in total yardage (18.3 PPG, 307 YPG); and while there’s obviously tons of room for him to grow and develop, ideally, you’d like to see much better numbers from a squad that claims to have found its franchise quarterback.
Chicago’s defense has barely kept the ship afloat the last few seasons, highlighted by the Bears ranking 21st in points allowed and 15th in yards allowed per play last year (23.9 PPG, 5.3 YPP); however, Chicago’s mediocre defensive numbers are worthless as long as its offense continues to generate less than 20 PPG.
Best Bet: Bears Under 6.5 Wins (+100)

WIN TOTAL ODDS
- Over 6.5 (-120)
- Under 6.5 (+100)
Chicago’s win total is stationed at OU 6.5 with a slight lean to the over (-120), and while winning seven games seems relatively obtainable with matchups against the Texans, Jets, Falcons, Giants, Dolphins, and Lions (2) on this year’s slate; I still don’t feel comfortable backing the Bears to breed that level of consistency at minus value.

CHICAGO BEARS ODDS TO WIN NFC NORTH
The Bears are listed at +900 to win the NFC North, which ranks right alongside Detroit (+900) as the bottom dwellers in the division; and while I don’t necessarily hate the value in this spot, your money is probably better spent on various other longshots around the league.
CHICAGO BEARS ODDS TO WIN NFC CHAMPIONSHIP
The Bears are listed at +4000 to win the NFC, which places them towards the front of a cluster with the Commanders (+2200), Giants (+5000), Panthers (+6600), and Lions (+6600); however, they probably belong somewhere near the back of the pack.
CHICAGO BEARS ODDS TO WIN SUPER BOWL 57
The Bears are also distant longshots to win this year’s Super Bowl (+8000), which ranks alongside the Steelers (+8000), Jaguars (+10000), and Giants (+10000); and while Chicago won a few more games than Jacksonville and New York last season, I still think those teams have a higher ceiling than Chicago in regards to title chances.
CHICAGO BEARS 2022 MVP CONTENDERS & ODDS
Justin Fields (QB) +8000
Fields is listed at +8000 to win this year’s MVP award, which is in line with Chicago's wins the Super Bowl and ranks alongside Trevor Lawrence (+8000), Baker Mayfield (+8000), and Carson Wentz (+8000); which is an awfully lofty comparison for a QB that completed just 59% of his passes for 1,870 yards last season (7 TD, 10 INT).
CHICAGO BEARS TO MAKE PLAYOFFS ODDS
Make Playoff?: Yes (+310) | No (-400)
The odds of Chicago making the postseason are undeniably slim, but with three Wild Card spots up for grabs in each conference under the new format, it’s tough to warrant backing a team to miss the playoffs at -400, especially a young squad with as many question marks as the Bears.
