Vegas Sports Betting: Chicago Bears Betting Odds and Season Preview

Vegas Sports Betting will now discuss the outlook of the Chicago Bears. The Bears were just shy of the playoffs last year as their arch rivals the Green Bay Packers took their spot because of tie game against the Vikings. Although quarterback Jay Cutler was injured for 6 of 16 weeks of the regular season, back-up QB Josh McCown was able to complete his job successfully and fit in perfectly with the group. Unfortunately, the bears lost their back-up QB to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; in addition to that offense loss, the also missed the opportunity to re-acquire wide receiver and one of the all-time best kick returners Devin Hester. Yet, the team still has a potent offense that involves running back Matt Forte who can be a perfect addition to your fantasy league; Brandon Marshall as leading receiver followed by Alshon Jeffreys who had a stunning year last season and newly acquired Domenik Hixon from the Carolina Panthers in the third slot; Don’t also forget about their tight end Martellus Bennett who can also be a big threat and one can’t be easily covered. All in all, their offense is looking pretty good I would say. As for the defense, well they suffered a big blow by losing defensive end Julius Peppers and safety Major Wright but the team was very active during free agency signings to fill in those spots; they acquired defensive ends Lamarr Houston from the Oakland Raiders, Jared Allen from the Minnesota Vikings and Willie Young from the Detroit Lions. These acquisitions will fit in perfectly with the Bears defense. Luckily, the team was able to re-sign cornerback Charles Tillman for one more year to help out this defensive mix. In light of all this, although they lost many players, I personally think that the Bears are able to have a successful year this season due to caliber of talent on the team. We at Vegas Sports betting believe that the odds offered at Bovada sportsbook are fair and the best chance the Bears have to getting in the playoffs is through the wild card.
