Russell Wilson futures bet taken down as Chicago Bears Super Bowl odds shift

The final, at least for now, cryptic sign that took place was the fact many betting sites took down their Russell Wilson futures betting options. This is something that happens often when a big move is about to happen. Insiders will often tipoff the sportsbooks and then they remove the ability to make the bet as information is leaked prior to any deals becoming official. This puts a stop to them losing money as bets flood in prior to the deal being announced.

This is not the only thing changing though. Super Bowl odds for the Chicago Bears have shifted too. This could be reactionary to the fact that the Russell Wilson bet is no longer available and bettors are speculating that Chicago has to be the landing spot. Although I agree that Chicago seems to be the frontrunner, and as pointed out, the cryptic signs seem to point to something brewing between the Bears and Seahawks, I am not betting my house on the Bears as champs.

Nothing was going to happen quickly though as Benjamin Albright quickly pointed out.

The thing is, with the oddsmakers making their shift, it is definitely possible that something could happen within the next 24 to 48 hours. Will Russell Wilson be on the move? Will he be coming to Chicago? If that happens…watch out NFL.
