Bears Being Disrespected by Odds to Win Super Bowl
By David Hayes
Despite having already made a change at starting quarterback, the Chicago Bears have gotten off to an impressive start to the 2020 NFL season after rattling off a 5-1 record in their first six games of the year.
However, even with this hot start under their belt, the Bears aren't receiving the credit nor respect they deserve from the oddsmakers, especially not in their odds to win Super Bowl LV, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Bears Super Bowl Odds
After the Green Bay Packers were absolutely handled by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 38-10, in Week 6, the Bears have now climbed into first place in the NFC North, yet they are tied with the San Francisco 49ers for only the 12th-best odds of winning the Super Bowl at +3400.
Some notable teams ahead of the Bears are the 3-2 New Orleans Saints (+1300) and 4-2 Indianapolis Colts (+3000), not to mention the ridiculous gap between the Packers (+1200) and the Bears, despite Chicago boasting more wins.
The Bears do have a great opportunity to earn a little more respect from the oddsmakers with a tough upcoming Monday Night Football showdown with the 4-2 Los Angeles Rams on the road in Week 7.
The Rams currently eye +2000 odds to win the Super Bowl out of the NFC, and have already opened as 5.5-point home favorites over Chicago for Monday night's matchup in LA.
