Chicago Bears Betting | 2010 NFL Betting Guide

NFL Odds Chicago Bears 2010 Regular Season Wins

Over 7.5 Regular Season Wins +120
Under 7.5 Regular Season Wins -150

Online NFL Sportsbooks have NFL Future odds on the Chicago Bears 2010 Regular season wins at Over 7.5 (+120) meaning that for every $100 bet will pay $120. The UNDER 7.5 Wins has gotten steamed in early NFL preseason betting action as NFL wiseguys are not convinced Jay Cutler can cut down on the picks or be a team leader. Julius Peppers is 30 years old and Mike Martz is waiting in the wing for Lovie Smith to be canned so that he can take over the team. Chicago traded the draft to get Cutler and does not have a lot of young talent.

NFL Odds To Win the 2011 Super Bowl XLV (45)

Chicago Bears +3000 (+2000 odds in 2009)
New England Patriots +1200
Minnesota Vikings +1500
San Diego Chargers +1000
Dallas Cowboys +1000
Baltimore Ravens +1200
Pittsburgh Steelers +2000
Indianapolis Colts +800
