Recently released Chicago Bears 2013 Super Bowl XLVII Odds do not see the team as an elite level Lombardi Trophy contender; however, as a +2200 moneyline play (risk $100 to win $2200), the Bears are not completely out of the Super Bowl picture. That numbers ranks 11th on the odds leaderboard and the team’s +1000 listing to win the NFC Championship is seventh among the 16 team conference. The Green Bay Packers are a heavy favorite to win the NFC North, but the Bears and Lions, both of whom are drawing +450 odds to top the division standings, are expected to battle it out for second place.
The Chicago Bears 7-3 start last season had many believing the team would make another postseason appearance, but an injury to quarterback Jay Cutler led to a late slide which eliminated them from playoff contention. Offshore odds makers are expecting a rebound from the Monsters of the Midway in 2012, though. BetOnline.com has the Bears season win total set at nine games and the Over 9 wins is drawing -120 odds (Under 9 wins -110).
Vegas giant Cantor Gaming also likes Lovie Smith’s squad against its 2012 NFL regular season slate. Cantor released point spreads for the entire 2012 NFL schedule (save Week #17) earlier this month and it has Chicago listed as a favorite in 11 of 15 games.
