Spreads were released for all NFL games from week 1-16. The oddsmakers have the Bears favored in fewer games than they won the season before
CG Technology, a prominent sportsbook in Las Vegas released odds of every game in the NFL weeks 1-16. Week 17 is too much of a crap shoot to predict this far ahead. While the lines may change a bit, it will not be too drastic barring major injuries. With that said, the sportsbook sees a long year ahead for the Chicago Bears. They are currently favored in just two games, and the first game they are favored in does not come until week 13.
Here are their odds by game:
Atlanta (-6) at Chicago
Chicago (+7) at Tampa Bay
Pittsburgh (-5.5) at Chicago
Chicago (+9.5) at Green Bay
Minnesota (-2) at Chicago
Chicago (+7) at Baltimore
Carolina (-1.5) at Chicago
Chicago (+6) at New Orleans

The two teams the Bears are favored against are the Browns and the 49ers. This should be no surprise, given that those are the two teams who picked ahead of the Bears in the 2017 NFL Draft. However, it should also be noted that the Bears are home for those two games, and if they were on the road, they would likely be slight underdogs.
Speaking of slight underdogs, the Bears are less than three point underdogs at home against the Panthers, Lions, and Vikings. If the team is going to pull off any upsets next year, those are the three to keep an eye on.
It may be no surprise that two of the tightest spreads come in home divisional games. What may be surprising is that the Vikings are bigger favorites than the Lions, who made the playoffs last season. Of course, while the Vikings and Lions are in a similar tier above Chicago, Green Bay currently stands in a tier of their own. They would be 6.5-point favorites in Chicago, which is four points higher than Minnesota, and five points higher than Detroit.
So what do you think? Do the oddsmakers have Bears figured out, or will they win more than a measly two games next season?
