49ers vs Bears Opening Odds For NFL Week 1 Reveal Big Favorite on FanDuel Sportsbook
The NFL excited football fans everywhere when the league revealed the full 2022 season schedule on Thursday night. Fans are already looking forward to the Week 1 tilt between the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears as it offers the first-ever NFL showdown between quarterbacks Trey Lance and Justin Fields.
FanDuel Sportsbook hasn't wasted any time when it comes to releasing its opening odds for Week 1. Unless something changes, the 49ers are projected to be the big road favorite over the Bears to kick off the campaign.
49ers vs Bears Week 1 Odds
FanDuel Sportsbook has the 49ers as 6.5-point road favorites with -110 odds to cover the spread. The Bears are also -110 to cover as the underdogs. Meanwhile, San Francisco is the current -270 moneyline favorite while Chicago sits at +220.
The two teams have been alternative wins and losses in their last eight meetings. The 49ers were victorious in their last most recent meeting, defeating the Bears, 33-22, in Week 8 of the 2021 NFL season.
The 49ers are expected to be a contender next season after one Super Bowl and two NFC Championship Game appearances in the last three years. In other words, beating a team like Chicago is expected from San Francisco.
The Bears have one of the easiest schedules next season, but they still need to prove that they can compete against high-end teams like the 49ers. Considering the lack of significant improvement that Chicago has made this offseason, things could get ugly fast if they don't have a strong start against San Francisco.
Both teams are at opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to Super Bowl odds. FanDuel Sportsbook has the 49ers at +1600 (T-No. 6) to win Super Bowl LVII, while the Bears are much further down at +10000 (T-No. 25).
