2022 NFL Win Totals: Chicago Bears

Over at Caesars, the Bears win total under (6.5) has drawn 95% of the total dollars wagered and 79% of the total number of tickets. To put that in layman’s terms, it’s almost 18 times more under money than over money on Chicago’s win total.

That percentage positions the Bears as the the most lopsided under per dollars, along with for any win total in general. Below are the five win total overs that have accrued a more sizable handle in one direction:

  • Commanders (7.5): 99%
  • Ravens (9.5): 98%
  • Colts (9.5): 98%
  • Saints (8): 97%
  • Lions (6): 96%

Currently, the Bears win total under is priced at -140 while the over sits at +120. Keep in mind, it initially opened at -140 towards the over.

Moreover, the Bears win total under ranks second in total tickets ⁠⁠— one slot behind the New York Jets. That juxtaposes the action at FanDuel Sportsbook, where Gang Green is one of the most popular win total over wagers.

Evaluating Bears NFL Win Totals

Justin Fields struggled amid his rookie campaign, generating -0.13 expected points added (EPA) per play. Ironically enough, that was behind only the Jets’ Zach Wilson for the second-worst EPA among quarterbacks.

EPA is calculated by the expected points scored based on the down, distance, and field position at the start of a play ⁠— compared with the end result.

Nevertheless, Luke Getsy — Chicago’s newest offensive coordinator — will likely be an upgrade over the inept Matt Nagy and Bill Lazor. All of Getsy’s seven years of NFL coaching experience came with the Packers, in which he last served as Aaron Rodgers’ offensive coordinator. The Bears upgraded their coaching staff collectively as well, hiring former Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus to take over the head coaching duties.

Chicago’s receiving core is underwhelming at best, as Darnell Mooney and ex-Chiefs wideout Byron Pringle lead the way after Allen Robinson’s departure. On the other side of the ball, it parted ways with a quartet of notable names — defensive ends Khalil Mack and Akiem Hicks, nose tackle Eddie Goldman and linebacker Danny Trevathan.
