Odds to the Super Bowl (2014) 27/1

Odds to win NFC North +350

Regular Season Wins Total OVER 8.5 -150

Regular Season Wins Total UNDER 8.5 +120
 

It may not hurt to place a wager on the Bears to win the NFC North at this price considering the oddsmakers feel quite strongly that Chicago will win at least 9 regular season games.  Gambling911.com, it should be said, believes Green Bay will still win this division.

Chris Burke of Sports Illustrated writes:

Marc Trestman’s hire signaled a sea change in approach for the Bears, who shucked Lovie Smith’s defense-first philosophy in favor of Trestman’s CFL-honed offensive stylings. Cutler ought to benefit from that change, but altering a team’s identity is risky and challenging. The Bears will be dangerous with the football — don’t overlook Martellus Bennett’s arrival. This defense, however, was a top-five unit last season, and Trestman will have to reach into his bag of tricks to keep it there. Anything short of a playoff berth would be a letdown.

Burke acknowledges that the Bears have lost a significant piece of the puzzle on defense with Brian Urlacher's retirement.

Deadspin.com may have burst the bubble on Chicago’s chances, raising some very valid points.

Trestman is the first CFL head coach to be hired as an NFL head coach in over 30 years. The last one was Frank Kush, who went 0-8-1 in his first season with the Colts. Trestman hasn't been in the NFL for seven years. His last stint was as an assistant on a Tampa team that went 4-12. You never want to make a coaching hire that Al Davis plausibly could have made.

Based on Deadspin’s assessment, the UNDER 8.5 paying $12 for every $10 bet might actually make some sense.
