Bears Super Bowl odds (Might be another long year)
Everything about the future of the Chicago Bears is up in the air from a new stadium to their franchise quarterback.
The Bears recently purchased land in Arlington Park and Justin Fields hopes it’s a dome because he hates the cold weather of Chicago, according to the Pardon My Take Podcast.
“I hope we get a dome,” Fields said on the Pardon My Take podcast this week. “I don’t care if we’re at Soldier Field, I don’t care if we’re at Arlington Heights. I hope we get a dome.”
What will the Bears new stadium look like? When will it be completed? And when it is finished, will Fields still be playing for the Bears?
Questions like these make it difficult to forecast the Bears, but their odds to win Super Bowl LVIII make it clear they aren’t expected to be contenders next season.
Super Bowl 58 Odds
Bears expected to be bottom feeders in ‘23
Listed at +8000 odds to win Super Bowl LVIII, the Bears are expected to be one of the least likely teams to compete for a championship.
There are just three teams with longer odds than the Bears: the Indianapolis Colts (+15000), the Houston Texans (+20000) and the Arizona Cardinals (+20000).
When you look at last year’s results it makes plenty of sense.
The Bears finished 3-14, losing 10 straight games to end the season. They now own the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft. If you want to feel optimistic, last year’s team with the No. 1 pick, the Jacksonville Jaguars, made the AFC Divisional round.
However, it does look like a tall order for Chicago.
The culprit was mainly a porous defense that was 29th in the NFL in yards allowed and 32nd in points allowed.
Barring a perfect draft and some unforeseen offseason additions, it’s hard to see how Chicago fixes this issue in just one season.
When you add in rumors of Fields being traded, it’s a wonder that the Bears don’t have longer odds than the current 80-to-1 number.
