One sportsbook has the Chicago Bears as the favorite in only two games in 2022

Las Vegas doesn’t like the Chicago Bears odds this season

One Las Vegas sportsbook predicts the Chicago Bears will have a bad season in 2022. Unfortunately, this consensus is not an anomaly. Many national analysts project the Bears to have a rough season ahead of them as well. Even with a favorable schedule, they’re unimpressed by the talent on the current roster. The loss of elite players like Khalil Mack and the lack of major moves to aid Justin Fields are typical complaints.

SuperBook at the Westgate Las Vegas has the Bears as the favorite in two games. The first as a favorite is week 3 versus Houston Texans at -3.5. The second is at home week 10 against the Detriot Lions at -2.5 as the spread. (On another note of interest, the Bears’ biggest spread as a dog is at +10 to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football.)

Not good.

A two-win season seems low for the Bears

While I expect the Bears to have their fair share of struggles this season, two wins seem kind of low. The Bears are learning a new system with a new coaching staff this offseason. If the team can grow quickly, the Bears should be able to find a way to win at least a few games. It would be a bleak sign for the future if the Bears were only able to win two games this season.

Fields would more than likely not improve at all from last season, which would mean he’s likely a bust. The defense would probably not have any signs of competence. This would not bode well for new head coach Matt Eberflus whose specialty is to get the most out of the talent he has in defenses.

The Bears’ schedule has enough winnable games for them to get a few toss-ups. The Bears can easily snag games with the New York Giants, Washington Commanders, Miami Dolphins, Atlanta Falcons, New York Jets, and the Philadelphia Eagles. If this team can’t beat any of these franchises, it might foreshadow a few more rough seasons for the Bears.
