Chicago Bears Odds, Bet Types, and Team History
The Chicago Bears have never posted a losing record under head coach Matt Nagy, reaching the playoffs twice in three seasons. Both of those things are signs of consistency, though that is exactly what the franchise lacked in 2020. Chicago went 8-8, but it started 5-1 before losing six straight games and then rallying to win three of four.
A lot of the ups and downs came with the offense — a unit that ranked ninth in scoring in 2018 and has finished 29th and 22nd in the two years since. That could change this year with the addition of rookie QB Justin Fields . Chicago traded up on draft day to take the Ohio State star No. 11 overall — one of five offensive players drafted by the Bears in 2021. If Fields needs time to develop, Andy Dalton might be the stopgap option while Nick Foles also remains available.
Running back David Montgomery topped 1,000 yards for the first time in his career. While he figures to be the lead back again, Damien Williams joins the mix after opting out in 2020. Whichever QB ends up starting will also get to work with Allen Robinson , who remains one of the league’s top wideout after going for 102 catches, 1,250 yards and six touchdowns last year.
Chicago’s defense ranked top five in scoring during Nagy’s first two years. That group took a step back in 2020, finishing 14th though it still has some big names to watch. Khalil Mack and Roquan Smith were both second-team All-Pro last season. Mack had nine sacks and three forced fumbles while Smith racked up 137 total tackles, seven pass breakups, four sacks and two interceptions. Defensive back Jaylon Johnson also shined as a rookie with 15 pass breakups.
The Bears open the 2021 NFL season at the Los Angeles Rams. You can view the Action Network’s top odds for the game below in addition to an odds comparison for every Week 1 game right here.

Chicago started 5-1 and appeared to have a chance at competing for the NFC North title in 2021. That was before the Bears lost six straight games, needing to win three of their final four just to secure a playoff spot. Chicago earned the NFC’s final wild card spot and lost in the Wild Card round of the postseason. The Bears last won the North in 2018.
The Green Bay Packers won the NFC North at 13-3, capturing the division for the second consecutive year. Behind Chicago were the Minnesota Vikings at 7-9, their fewest wins since 2014. The Detroit Lions went 5-11 to finish in fourth place for the third year in a row.

Betting on the Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears Point Spreads
Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Bears went 8-8 overall and performed exactly the same against the spread. Chicago’ eight wins came at a margin of 9.9 points while its eight losses were by an average of 9.7 points. Here’s an example:
- Vikings +2.5 (+110)
- Packers -2.5 (-110)
In this situation, the Vikings are 2.5 point underdogs against the Bears. If Chicago wins the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on the Bears would come with a payout of $90.91. If Minnesota won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.
Chicago Bears Over/Unders
Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
Let's say the Packers play the Bears and the over/under is set at 54 points. A wager on the over would require Green Bay and Chicago to score 55 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 53 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 54 points scored.
In 2020, Chicago averaged 23.3 points per game (22nd in NFL) and allowed 23.1 points (14th in NFL). The Bears were a middle of the pack team when it came to exceeding point totals, going 8-8 against the over.
Chicago Bears Moneylines
Chicago was a difficult team to pick when betting the moneyline in 2020. The Bears were a great choice during their 5-1 start, an equally bad pick during a six-game losing streak and then won three of four to finish the year. You never quite knew which team you’d be getting in a given week.
Check out this example:
- Bears -120
- Lions +210
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Chicago the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Bears odds would mean every $120 bet nets $100. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Lions moneyline was set at +210, meaning a $100 wager would profit $210.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Bears moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, Chicago would need to win by three points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.
Chicago Bears Props
Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:
- Justin Fields 2021 passing yards: 3,550.5
Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:
- Chicago Bears odds to win the NFC North
- Chicago Bears odds to win the NFC
- Chicago Bears odds to win the Super Bowl
- Justin Fields’ odds to win Offensive Rookie of the Year
- Khalil Mack’s odds to win Defensive Player of the Year
If you’re confident that the Bears can win the NFC North or that Fields will be the best rookie QB in the league, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
