If you live in Illinois, then chances are, like most of us, you’re a supporter of one of the best NFL teams, the Chicago Bears. And nothing shows support like placing a bet on Chicago Bears in the 2019 NFL season. The best place to bet is online because you are able to see live stats, updated odds, and you can easily control your bankroll and bets.
Chicago Bears Betting Preview
This year, the Chicago Bears are celebrating their 100th anniversary and like most bettors, we are hoping that this brings about some luck in the 2019 NFL season. Unfortunately, the Chicago Bears will definitely need it, as we predict that they have one of the most difficult NFL schedules this year.
In fact, nearly every NFC North team was handed some tricky schedules this year, so it will be very interesting to see how it will all play out in terms of online sports betting odds.
Of course, one of our saving graces (for the team and our betting pockets) this year is Matt Nagy. The offensive coordinator that we snatched up from the Kansas City Chiefs has completely overhauled our Bear’s offense. Although it wasn’t enough to secure us a Superbowl victory, it could definitely be enough to carry us through the rest of the NFL season.
Expectations are very high for the Chicago Bears this season, and thanks to other teams thinking we don’t have what it takes, we can expect some pretty good online sports betting odds for the Chicago Bears. While Matt Nagy seems to have the offense covered, the question as to what sort of bets to place will depend on the Bear’s defensive strategy.
The Chicago Bears’ former defensive coordinator, Vic Fangio, recently was replaced with Chuck Pagano (formerly of the Indianapolis Colts) and we haven’t really been able to tell yet what this will mean for the team in terms of betting odds.
Final Thoughts on Chicago Bears
In 2018, the Chicago Bears finished the regular season with a 12-4 record. Unfortunately, due to the tough schedule and recent team changes, we expect to lose a few more games this year. Based on overall odds given in this Chicago Bears Betting Preview and many online sports betting previews, our best guess at a safe overall bet on Chicago Bears would be an Over/Under 9 wins.
That’s a very neutral take on the current stats that we are seeing with the details in this Chicago Bears Betting Preview, but, of course in our heart of hearts, most Illinois residents will bet with the team spirit of the Bears…who knows, they might just beat that 12-4 record after all.
