Chicago Bears Odds To Win 2011 Super Bowl: Still Pays $1200

Chicago Bears Odds To Win 2011 Super Bowl

Get your Chicago Bears odds to win the 2011 Super Bowl while they’re still hot.  The Bears are in the Playoffs and the payout would be a whopping $1200 for every $100 bet should they win the title.

SBG Global was offering 2011 Super Bowl odds coming into Sunday but, like most other online sportsbooks that take bets on the Super Bowl futures, odds are taken down on Sunday and Monday while games are being played.  They are then updated and sometimes the price is reduced.  Once a bet is placed, however, the payout odds are locked in.  You would have to bet prior to the start of Sunday’s games to guarantee the $1200 payout on a $100 bet (see SBG Global banner below). 

Last week the Bears managed a 4-point win over the New York Jets.   Chicago won for the seventh time in eight games after blowing an early 10-point lead.  They have won the NFC North division title after entering the season with rather long odds behind both Green Bay and Minnesota.  Chicago gets a first week bye in the Playoffs.

So what were the Bears odds prior to the start of this season?

Try 30-1.

Entering the 2010 regular season, a number of sites that offered previews for each NFL team, including the Bears, got this one right to some degree.  The main denominator appears to have been offensive coordinate Mike Martz

Bruce Ciskie of the NFL Fan House at the start of the season:

“With Mike Martz in tow, the expectation is that Cutler will improve greatly. Not only will he be more comfortable with his Bears teammates, but this offense is said to suit him better. Martz will turn the "Young Gunslinger" loose, no matter what his 27 2009 interceptions may tell you about his accuracy.”

 

The team also acquired Chester Taylor and Julius Peppers during the offseason.

Whether the Bears are good enough to win the 2011 Super Bowl (let alone make it that far to begin with) remains to be seen. 

The Bears were able to handle a highly ranked defense last week, scoring three third-quarter touchdowns and gaining 322 yards of offense in their win over the Jets.

"We're playing the way we expected this offense to be," said running back Matt Forte, who had 113 yards rushing and a touchdown on 19 carries to become the first player to top the century mark against the Jets in over a year.

Forte is averaging 5.7 yards per carry over the last five games while quarterback Jay Cutler has compiled a 104.2 rating while completing 60.7 percent of his passes for 1,042 yards with 11 touchdowns and four interceptions in that span.
