NFL Betting – Chicago Bears Calendar Odds & Analysis For the 2021-22 Season
Chicago Bears: 2020 Season Recap
Off the back of a strong defense, Chicago started the 2020 season with a 5-1 record. Many weren’t quite buying the Bears’ success, given the turnstile at the quarterback position. The team swapped between Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles numerous times, ending the season at 8-8.
8-8 was good enough to lock up the final playoff spot in the NFC. Chicago would go on to lose to the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card Round, 21-9.
This past offseason, Chicago made a big move in the NFL Draft, trading multiple first-round picks to move up and select Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields.

Chicago Bears: 2021 Schedule
The Bears will play each of Green Bay, Minnesota, and Detroit twice. If Aaron Rodgers is traded, the division suddenly has a much different feel. Minnesota should be better this season, while Detroit remains one of the weakest teams in the NFL.
The Bears will play two of the toughest divisions in football in 2021, in the NFC West and AFC North.
There are five playoff teams from 2020 in that group, including Seattle, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and Cleveland. The teams that didn’t make the playoffs are tough too, in San Francisco, Arizona, and Cincinnati.
Given their second-place finish, the Bears will play the teams that also finished in second in their divisions. Unfortunately for Chicago, that list starts with defending champion Tampa Bay. The others are the New York Giants and Las Vegas Raiders.
The teams on Chicago’s schedule:
- Green Bay Packers (x2)
- Minnesota Vikings (x2)
- Detroit Lions (x2)
- Seattle Seahawks
- Los Angeles Rams
- San Francisco 49ers
- Arizona Cardinals
- Pittsburgh Steelers
- Baltimore Ravens
- Cleveland Browns
- Cincinnati Bengals
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- New York Giants
- Las Vegas Raiders
2021 Season Prediction
2021 is an important season for Chicago, given the draft, capital surrendered to acquire Justin Fields. Early indications suggest that Andy Dalton, signed this offseason, will start the season at quarterback.
With a tough schedule and some expected growing pains at the quarterback position, it’s best to stay away from betting on Chicago to make a miraculous Super Bowl run.
Most opening lines for total team wins have the Bears at over/under 7.5 wins. Bet the under confidently.
NFL Chicago Bears Calendar Analysis In 2020
Based on at we have seen in seasons past, as well as in moves made in the offseason, we get a pretty decent idea of how teams might perform over the course of a 16-game regular season on the NFL. The reality, though, is that some teams are going to come out of nowhere and overachieve, while others will fail to meet the expectations. The 2019 Chicago Bears fell into that latter category, stumbling their way to an 8-8 record, which meant that they missed the playoffs. There is still the core of a very decent team here, with the hope being that the moves made this offseason will help them challenge in the NFC North once again.
