Chicago Bears Odds to Win 2011 NFC North

The Chicago Bears odds to win the 2011 NFC North were listed at 5/1 in a very tight division that features last year’s Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers.  Needless-to-say, their odds of winning the 2012 Super Bowl are at 50/1.

Jay Cutler coming out of an NFL Playoffs game last season due to a leg injury had him labeled as “too soft” when in reality Cutler has only missed one game in his career as a starter, and that was for undiagnosed diabetes that could have killed him. 

The Bears made it to the Playoffs last season and improved during the offseason.  So, too, have all the NFC North teams.

The Bears should be able to split the division series with 3 wins.  They will host the Panthers and Seahawks, which should be winnable.  Road games in Cleveland and Denver are also winnable but it is tough to see the Bears doing better than 7-9 unless they have vastly improved, which they really have not. 

It’s possible, but the oddsmakers have Chicago set at winning OVER/UNDER 8 regular season games with the OVER slightly favored.

FanDuel "Act of God" Clause Could Cancel College Football Futures

Many sportsbooks have stopped taking bets on college football in light of the Big 10 and PAC 12 cancelling their fall seasons.

With the Big 10 and PAC 12 officially cancelling their college football slate this fall, one has to wonder how this will impact the sportsbooks bottom line.  Of course, attempts to play in the spring would likely more than make up for any losses down the road.
