The Bears haven’t shown what their 2019 starters can do yet this preseason, but the oddsmakers in Las Vegas seem to be on board with Matt Nagy’s plans for the upcoming season.
The money is coming in on Chicago to win the Super Bowl, and the most popular sportsbooks shifted the odds for the Bears to win the conference.
They’re now tied for the best chances to reach the Super Bowl from the NFC at both MGM and Westgate, according to CBS Sports.
Vegas must be getting some serious money on the Bears. Here are odds to win NFC ...— R.J. White (@rjwhite1) August 17, 2019
Both books see the Bears and Saints as favorites at 5/1 odds, while Westgate views the Rams and Eagles as equally likely.
MGM is much higher on the Packers’ chances, and both have the Vikings in the top seven.
The path to a Super Bowl berth is never easy, and Chicago will have as difficult a path as any team with two other contenders in the division.
Every single team on the odds list appears on the Bears 2019 regular-season schedule.
