The Bears have looked really bad so far. Bad enough that the bookmakers both online and in Las Vegas are willing to bet the house against the Bears winning the Super Bowl.

Three games into the season, the Bears have the worst odds to win it all in the entire league. Right now, Bovada has the Bears at 500/1 to win the championship, tied with Jacksonville for the worst odds.

Those are actually favorable odds when compared to the line from SportsBook. They have the Bears as the outright worst in the NFL with 1,000/1 odds. The Jaguars are next closest at 400/1.

With odds at even reaching the Super Bowl nearly as long, a pair of $10 bets on the Bears reaching and then winning the Super Bowl would bring home $7,000 and the shock of the nation.

For Bears fans looking for a ray of sunshine in this bleak scenario, the Bears currently have the best chances at earning the top pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

The only problem then would be deciding which of the many needs to fill first.

Beverley’s stay with the Bulls last season was successful in the standings, but not so much in the locker room. But just because the organization moved off the hometown guy doesn’t mean toughness still isn’t an issue.
Notre Dame’s Joe Alt was born to be a left tackle.
Kraus scored nine points on 4-for-4 shooting from the field during the third quarter. That quarter gave the Rockets (25-11) the cushion they needed as they won back-to-back IHSA Class 1A state championships in their 48-36 win over the Illini Bluffs (32-5) at Illinois State’s CEFCU Arena.
“I had a moment of frustration with the audio issue we were having,” Cronin told the Sun-Times on Saturday, “and I said something I shouldn’t have said, not realizing I had a live mic.”
