Bears Super Bowl LVIII Odds: May 31, 2023

The Bears Super Bowl odds are +5000, according to BetMGM Illinois and DraftKings Illinois. That ranks them No. 18 in the NFL per BetMGM and No. 19 per DraftKings. FanDuel Illinois and BetRivers Illinois have the Bears Super Bowl odds at the slightly longer +6000. They rank No. 24 in FanDuel's odds and No. 20 in BetRivers'. Below is a look at Chicago’s odds to make noise throughout the playoffs this season, all according to DraftKings:

πŸ† Odds to Win SBLVIII+5000
πŸ‘‘ Odds to Win NFC+3000
⭐ Odds to Win NFC North+380
πŸ”₯ Odds to Make Playoffs+160
❌ Odds to Miss Playoffs-190

Despite its rich history, the Bears have only hoisted the Vince Lombardi Trophy just once. According to Illinois sportsbooks, it doesn't look like 2023 will be the season to add another. At +3000, the Bears have the 10th-best odds to win the NFC conference, according to DraftKings Illinois. BetMGM's odds of +2200 rank them No. 8 to win the NFC. FanDuel and BetRivers both have the Bears' odds to win the NFC at +2500, which ranks them both 10th.

The NFC North is not particularly competitive this season. With the Vikings potentially entering a rebuild and QB Aaron Rodgers out of Green Bay, the Lions look to be the frontrunners in a division that had just one team reach the postseason last year. The Bears currently have the third-best odds behind Detroit and Minnesota, according to DraftKings. FanDuel and BetRivers both have the Bears at +350 odds to win the NFC North, which has them in third place. BetMGM's +325 odds are good enough for second place in the division.
