This football season marks the first time that Illinois online sports betting is legal, and thus, this season marks the first time that the state’s bettors can wager on Chicago Bears odds online at with online apps such as DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook.
This season has been a true roller coaster for the Bears. A 5-1 start was followed by a six-game losing streak and a three-game winning streak. That prolonged losing stretch, one that appeared to ensure the Bears would miss the postseason, brought some value for Chicago bettors who were able to grab Matt Nagy’s team at +15000 to win the Super Bowl.

So far, Illinois bettors have had some moderate success backing the Bears who are 8-8 ATS heading into the postseason. Notably, the Saints are 9-7 ATS.
Bears Wild Card Odds
After producing three victories over teams with a combined 11 wins, the Bears were blown out by the Packers but still managed to reach the postseason.
|Bears||+10 (-110)||+400||O 47.5|
|Saints||-10 (-110)||-500||U 47.5|
Amazingly, the Bears are the underdog for the 14th time in 17 games this season. This week, Chicago is nearly a double-digit underdog. This is an understandable line. The Saints are owners of a 12-4 record and have won 11 of 13 games down the stretch, including a 26-23 OT win over the Bears back in November.

2020 Chicago Bears Playoff Odds
After jumping out to a 5-1 record, the Bears emerged as an NFC North and NFC title contender through six weeks. However, a six-game losing streak brought Chicago to the brink of postseason elimination. Alas, the Bears have gotten up off the mat and have slipped into the postseason.
To rewind, Chicago was on the short list of teams with the best odds to win the Super Bowl in mid-October, but those odds suffered a big drop following a series of losses. The Bears saw their championship odds move from +5000 to +10000 to +20000. While their NFC North odds plummeted until they were officially eliminated, the Super Bowl odds have rebounded up to all the way up to +8000 ahead of Week 17. Despite qualifying for the playoffs, those odds have since slipped to +10000.
While nobody is ready to definitively commit to Mitch Trubisky beyond 2020, the embattled quarterback has done a good job since regaining the starting job in late-November.
Bears Super Bowl Odds
Let’s move to the ultimate goal and take a look at the current Bears Super Bowl odds.
The Bears started the season in the middle of the pack in terms of championship odds. In late August, Chicago was priced at +4000. Ahead of Week 7 action, they were sitting at +3000. After six consecutive losses, the Bears dropped to +20000 to win the Super Bowl. They have since moved to +10000. Only Washington (+10000) has such long odds to win it all among playoff qualifiers.
One of the teams ahead of them is NFC North foe Green Bay, which is priced at +450 to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. Below, take a look at the top ten favorites and where the Bears are priced in relation to those squads.
Bears Odds to Win NFC
The Bears have the worst odds, along with Washington, to win the NFC. If you are looking to take the Bears to represent the NFC in Super Bowl 55, you can grab them at +3300 odds (same as last week). Here are some of the top contenders in the NFC:
- Packers +165
- Saints +275
- Buccaneers +400
- Seahawks +450
- Rams +1300
- Bears +4000
- Washington +4000
