Chicago Bears Player Stats
The 2020 Chicago Bears had high hopes and started the season on a high note, winning five of their first six games. It went downhill from there, though, and the team finished with an 8-8 record overall, though that was enough to sneak into the playoffs. They ultimately lost in the first round, 21-9, to the .
This season marks a new era for the Chicago Bears, as they'll transition from Mitchell Trubisky under center to now some combination of Andy Dalton, Nick Foles, and 2021 draft pick Justin Fields. Oddsmakers are expecting a down year, but there should be encouraging signs from the young players all season long.
Chicago Bears Point Spreads
The Bears finished the regular season 8-8 against-the-spread, although they struggled at home at Soldier Field, going just 3-5 ATS there. Against the spread refers to spread bets, which are popular bet types revolving around the margin of victory in a game.
Here’s a brief example of a spread for a Bears game:
- Bears +5.5 (-110)
- Packers -5.5 (-110)
In spread bets, the underdogs (the team likely to lose) are designated with plus odds, while the favorites (the team likely to win) have minus odds. In the above example, the Bears are 5.5-point underdogs against their division rival .
A Bears would win under two conditions: 1) if the Bears won the game outright or 2) if the Bears lost by five or fewer points. If the Packers won by six or more points, then that side of the bet would win and Bears backers would lose their money.
Chicago Bears Over/Unders
or total bets are also incredibly common wagers in the U.S. sports betting landscape. An over/under is exactly how it sounds: A sportsbook will list odds, and you can bet over or under the number. The most popular total bets are on a team's point performance or a game's team performance.
Let's say the Bears vs. game has a total of 40 points. As a bettor, you can decide whether that game is going over or under that number set by oddsmakers. If you hit the over, you would cash if the game finished at 41 or more points; in contrast, the under would profit if 39 or fewer points were scored. If the game landed on 40 exactly, neither side would lose, which is called a in sports betting.
Chicago Bears Moneylines
Whereas spread betting is all about the margin of victory in a game, moneyline bets are all about which team wins. It doesn't matter by how much or how little: A win is a win, and the moneyline wager would cash.
That's easy enough, but the odds can be a bit confusing. It's often helpful to think about the odds and payouts in terms of $10 or $100 increments. Let's say the Bears against the was set at -150: That means if you bet $15, you would win $10 if the Bears won the game. Contrastingly, if the Bears were +150 on the moneyline, you'd win $15 on a $10 bet.
Chicago Bears Props
Bears fans are rightfully excited about grabbing Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields in the draft, and when he plays he'll likely be a popular fantasy football and DFS choice given his running and throwing ability. Player props are somewhat similar in that they're wager types that are all based on how just a single player will perform.
Some examples for Bears props include Fields to throw over/under a certain amount of yards, Allen Robinson to catch over/under a set amount of passes, Jimmy Graham to score a touchdown, and much more.
Whether or not you think the Bears can make the playoffs this year, you can bet on it, as sportsbooks will offer odds on either side. These types of bets are called futures, and they're all about end-of-season events.
