Chicago Bears Super Bowl Odds 2022
Bears fans are starving for rookie QB Justin Fields to take the field, but the Chicago coaching staff has different plans. For at least Week 1, free-agent signee QB Andy Dalton will be the starting quarterback, which limits the number of points and yards the offense can produce. The Bears are one of those teams that is a quarterback away from contending. They have a mauling defense and skill positions that can create in space. If Fields can take the field sooner rather than later, then the Bears might see themselves in the playoffs.

Bears Odds Analysis
The story with the Bears season is around rookie Justin Fields and when he takes the field. Because that’s when the season will truly start for Chicago. Matt Nagy and the coaching staff are adamant that veteran quarterback Andy Dalton is the solution to their offensive woes and that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Anyone with eyeballs that are watching the preseason can see that Fields is the better option for the Bears because of his superior size, speed, scrambling, arm strength, and playmaking ability. Nonetheless, Dalton is the starter in Week 1 against the Rams.
Dalton is presumed to be the starter for the first couple of weeks in the season and we will see if Fields plays based on how the offense is producing. If Dalton struggles, like what we think will happen, then Fields will get to play earlier in the season. If Dalton keeps the team afloat in the playoff picture and moves the ball effectively down the field, then Fields will take a backseat longer than Bears fans want him to. Fields give the best chance to get to the playoffs at quarterback, but the coaching staff feels different.
Looking around the NFC, we can see that the oddsmakers aren’t very high on the Bears heading into the season. The Bears have the 11th worst odds to win the Super Bowl and the 5th worst odds to win the Super Bowl out of NFC teams. In terms of their division, the Bears are light years behind the Vikings and Packers, who sit at +5000 and +1300 to win the Super Bowl respectively but also have much higher odds than the Lions, who have a miserable +200000 odds to win the Super Bowl.
The only ray of hope Bears bettors have is if Justin Fields becomes the starting quarterback. With him as the leader, everything changes and the Bears become much tougher to beat.
Reasons Why Bears Win Super Bowl
The Bears are one of those teams where it’s more fun to watch their defense than their offense. And that’s because they got some demons in their defense. LB Khalil Mack is the guy every offensive coordinator plans to stop first as he is a prime candidate for the DPOY award. This is because Mack is one of the strongest pass rushers in the NFL and has a great ability to use his hands and speed to shed double teams. Apart from Mack, Chicago has other great players like DL Akiem Hicks, LB Roquan Smith, LB Robert Quinn, LB Danny Trevathan, and S Eddie Jackson. All of these guys are playmakers on defense as they all try and force fumbles with their great power and speed at their respective positions.
On the offensive side of the ball, they have some nice skill position players. Starting with their best offensive weapon, WR Allen Robinson is one of the most underrated players in the NFL. He has been putting up incredible numbers with terrible quarterbacks his entire career and he does so with his phenomenal route-running ability. Robinson makes even elite cornerbacks look silly with some of his moves and he could truly excel if Chicago figures out its quarterback.
Aside from him, RB David Montgomery has established himself as the bell cow back for the Bears as he has posted two decent rushing seasons behind one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL. The Bears also have a great young wide receiver in Darnell Mooney, who already has a decent highlight tape after his first season in the NFL. Of course, most of these highlights were him making defenders look like they have never played defense before with passes sailing 10 yards over his head, but there is promise in the young receiver.
Overall the Bears are good, not great but they have the player sitting in their locker room that can take them over the top, and it’s a shame the coaching staff refuses to play him.
Reasons Why Bears Don’t Win Super Bowl
The issues with the Bears stems from their horrible coaching staff. Every offensive 3 and out or defensive lapse comes from the top and Matt Nagy and the rest of the coaches haven’t improved any of the talents of their football team. The Bears’ preseason game against the Bills said everything you need to know about the Chicago coaches. QB Mitch Trubisky was a former #2 overall selection by the Bears and played under Nagy. This didn’t go well as Trubisky was thought of as the worst starting quarterback in the league. However, he got a chance to play the Bears in the preseason and absolutely throttled them. Trubisky looked great as he was throwing dimes on the run and out of the pocket when under a real play-caller
Nagy makes quarterbacks worse and is super bullish on Andy Dalton starting Week 1 when he has a better quarterback in Justin Fields right behind him. The Bears’ defense has saved Nagy’s butt one too many times and if he doesn’t produce on offense this season, Nagy could be gone early into the season.
The other issue is their starting quarterback heading into Week 1. Andy Dalton is the definitive starter for the game and that is just a terrible idea. Dalton hasn’t been able to produce in the preseason, so imagine how much he will struggle against a Rams defense that was ranked as the #1 defense in the NFL last season. The offensive line has also not gotten better from last season which means that Dalton or Fields will be under pressure sooner than they would want and David Montgomery will have less room to run. A good offensive line is the key to a football team’s success and the Bears have one of the worst offensive lines in the league.
Another big issue for the Bears is their absolutely brutal schedule. The Bears have to play the Rams, Bengals, Browns, Lions, Raiders, Packers, Vikings, Buccaneers, 49ers, Steelers, Ravens, Cardinals, Seahawks, and Giants. The Bears have less talent than a majority of these teams and there will probably be long gaps between celebrations for Bears’ wins.
It’s going to be a rough season for the Bears and they will probably start a rebuild next year.
