So the people whose livelihood depend on setting mostly accurate odds seem to view the Bears more favorably than you doomsaying fans and "experts" out there...

On the Bears chances to:
WIN SUPERBOWL -- average, they rate 16 teams ahead of them
WIN NFC -- above average, they rate 5 teams ahead of them
WIN DIVISION -- a little below average, about 20% chance
MAKE PLAYOFFS -- slightly below average, about 33% chance, rate 18 ahead
WIN 8+ GAMES -- about 46% chance

In other words, an average-ish team in a very good division that has a very good chance to break out and win the NFC if they manage to make the playoffs. Sounds about right to me.

If you 4-12, 2-14, and 6-10 prognosticators really believe so strongly in your analyses, why not prove it and make some easy money off these "stupid" books? Good luck... =)

Oops, one slight error. 46% is what the sportsbook says is the probability of 9+ wins if the Bears don't win exactly 8 games. So the actual probability of 8+ games is:

WIN 8+ GAMES -- about 52% chance
WIN 9+ GAMES -- about 40% chance

Remember, this is what a sportsbook says and back with real money. Think they're out of their minds? Then go fleece 'em... ;)

Oops, one slight error. 46% is what Bodog's line says is the probability of 9+ wins if the Bears don't win exactly 8 games. So the correct probability of 8+ games is:

WIN 8+ GAMES -- about 52% chance
WIN 9+ GAMES -- about 40% chance

Remember, this is what one book says and backs with real green. Think they're out of their minds? Then go fleece 'em... ;)
