Bears' 2014 Season Win Total

2014 Chicago Bears NFL season win total odds

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - One win total that bettors may want to take a look at is the Chicago Bears' over/under heading into the 2014 NFL season.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Bears' win total is currently sitting at 8.5, with the over carrying odds of -155 and the under carrying odds of +125. What this means is that for every $155.00 that you wager on the over, you'll win $100.00 if the Bears win more than 8.5  games. And for every $100.00 that you wager, you'll win $125.00 if Chicago finishes under the 8.5-win mark in the regular season.

There's plenty to like about the Bears. They were wretched defensively a year ago so they addressed their defensive line with free agent additions Lamarr Houston, Willie Young and Jared Allen. While they lost Henry Melton and Corey Wootton off that same line, there's no question that Chicago will be better up front with the additions of Houston, Young and Allen. The linebacker corps still has to shake out in training camp, but there's talent at that position, too.

The Bears continued to add to their defense in the draft as well. They selected Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller in the first round, LSU defensive tackle Ego Ferguson in the second, and Arizona State defensive lineman Will Sutton in the third. Fourth-round pick Brock Vereen out of Minnesota will also have an opportunity to start at free safety if he performs well in camp.

The overall outlook for Chicago in 2014 is bright, provided that everyone can stay healthy, of course. And health has been a problem for the Bears over the past couple of years, mainly at quarterback. But if Jay Cutler stays upright, this team is loaded offensively thanks to Brandon Marshall, Matt Forte, Alshon Jeffery and Marteullus Bennett. Coupled with the improvements they made on defense, I love the over 8.5 when it comes to the Bears' season win total.
