Bears Odds: NFC Championship
The NFC has a strong top tier, led by the 49ers, Saints, and Cowboys. With contenders like the Seahawks and Vikings, along with the addition of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski to Tampa Bay, the Bears face an uphill battle just to make the playoffs. The Bears enter the 2020 season with the ninth shortest odds at +2000 to win the NFC Championship.
NFC Championship Odds: 49ers (+450), Saints (+550), Cowboys/Buccaneers (+750), Eagles (+1000), Seahawks (+1050), Vikings (+1200), Packers (+1300), Rams (+1800), Bears (+2000), Cardinals/Falcons (+2500), Lions (+3000), Giants (+4000), Panthers/Washington (+6000)
Bears Odds: Super Bowl LV
The Bears enter the season +4000 to win the Super Bowl, the same odds as the Cleveland Browns and Los Angeles Rams. Both the Packers (+2800) and Vikings (+2500) are among the 15 teams with shorter Super Bowl odds than the Bears.
Shortest Odds: Chiefs (+600), Ravens (+650), 49ers (+900), Saints (+1000), Buccaneers (+1400), Cowboys (+1600), Patriots/Eagles (+1800), Seahawks (+2000), Colts (+2200), Bills/Vikings/Steelers (+2500), Packers/Titans (+2800), Bears/Browns/Rams (+4000), Chargers (+4500), Cardinals/Falcons/Broncos/Texans +5000.

Bears Odds: NFL Most Valuable Player
Linebacker Kahlil Mack has the shortest odds of any player on the Bears and has the second shortest odds of any defensive player at +15000 to win the 2020 NFL MVP Award, behind only Rams DT Aaron Donald (+10000). Joining Mack on the list of NFL MVP odds is QB Mitchell Trubisky, who is currently +20000 to win the award. Mack finished the 2019 season with 49 combined tackles, 8.5 sacks, and five forced fumbles.
Shortest Odds: KC QB Patrick Mahomes (+400), BAL QB Lamar Jackson (+700), SEA QB Russell Wilson (+800), DAL QB Dak Prescott (+1400), TB QB Tom Brady (+1600). Click here for the full list of NFL MVP odds.
Bears Odds: Offensive Player of the Year
It should come as no surprise to see reigning Offensive Player of the Year Patrick Mahomes atop the list of Player of the Year odds. While the award tends to be quarterback-driven, running backs Derrick Henry (+1000) and Christian McCaffrey (+1000) are interesting options, especially the latter given how Carolina utilizes McCaffrey in nearly every phase of the game.
Chicago RB David Montgomery (+6600) has the shortest odds of any Bears player to win the award. Allen Robinson (+15000) and Nick Foles (+25000) also appear on the list of odds to win the award, albeit longshots.
Shortest Odds: KC QB Pat Mahomes (+700), TEN RB Derrick Henry (+1000), BAL QB Lamar Jackson (+1000), CAR RB Christian McCaffrey (+1000), NO WR Michael Thomas (+1000), SF TE George Kittle (+1400). Click here for the full list of Offensive Player of the Year Odds.
Bears Odds: Defensive Player of the Year
The Bears’ defense boasts arguably the NFL’s best linebacker in Kahlil Mack, who enters the season +1400 to win the NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award, the third shortest odds of the group.
Like Donald and Bosa, Mack is a game-changing difference-maker who every offense will gameplan around. But with the spotlight shining out west, and the NFC North home to some sub-par offensive lines, Mack will still be able to get his.
Shortest Odds: LAR NT Aaron Donald (+700) SF DE Nick Bosa (+1200), CHI LB Khalil Mack (+1400), HOU DE, J.J. Watt (+1400), PIT LB T.J. Watt (+1600), CLE DE Myles Garrett (+2000). Click here for the full list of Defensive Player of the Year odds.
Bears Odds: Comeback Player of the Year
The award’s most noteworthy candidates are Pittsburgh’s’ Ben Roethlisberger (+300) and Washington’s Alex Smith (+300), both making their return having sustained and recovered from serious injuries. But a playoff berth for the Bears could coincide with either Nick Foles (+3300) or Mitchell Trubisky (+5000) winning the award.
After all, the 2019 winner of the award was Titans QB Ryan Tannehill, who began the season as the backup to Marcus Mariota.
Shortest Odds: PIT QB Ben Roethlisberger (+300), WAS QB Alex Smith (+300), NE QB Cam Newton (+400), DET QB Matthew Stafford (+800), HOU DE J.J. Watt (+1000). Click here for the full list of Comeback Player of the Year odds.
Bears Odds: Defensive Rookie of the Year
Cornerback Jaylon Johnson, who the Bears selected with the No. 50 overall pick out of Utah, is currently +6000 to win NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Washington defensive end Chase Young, the No. 2 overall draft pick is currently the odds-on favorite to win the award at +200. Detroit Lions rookie CB Jeffrey Okudah has the fifth shortest odds to win the award at +1600.
Shortest Odds: WAS DE Chase Young (+200), ARI LB Isaiah Simmons (+500), BAL LB Patrick Queen (+900), LAC LB Kenneth Murray (+1100), CAR DT Derrick Brown (+1600), DET CB Jeffrey Okudah (+1600). Click here for the full list of Defensive Rookie of the Year Odds.
Bears Odds: Offensive Rookie of the Year
The Bears drafted just two offensive players in the 2020 NFL Draft. Notre Dame tight end Cole Kmet, who the Bears selected with the No. 43 overall pick, is currently +10000 to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, although a tight end has never won the award before.
Minnesota Vikings rookie WR Justin Jefferson has the shortest odds of any offensive rookie in the NFC North at +2500, the same odds as his former TCU teammate and Eagles WR Jalen Reagor. Bengals QB and No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow is the odds-on favorite at +225.
Shortest Odds: CIN QB Joe Burrow (+225), KC RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (+400), MIA QB Tua Tagovailoa (+800), IND RB Jonathan Taylor (+800), LAR RB Cam Akers (+1600)
DEN WR Jerry Jeudy (+1600). Click here for the full list of Offensive Rookie of the Year Odds.
Bears Odds: Most Passing Yards
Bears quarterbacks Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles, amid an interesting QB battle, both enter the season with the second-longest odds at +15000 to gain the most passing yards in 2020, with only Chargers rookie Justin Herbet (+20000) listed behind them.
The Bears have deep threats in Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller, but neither Trubisky nor Foles have ever thrown for more than 3300 yards in a single season. Jameis Winston, the 2019 NFL leader, threw for over 5,100 yards.
Shortest Odds: Patrick Mahomes, KC (+450), Matt Ryan, ATL (+500), Jared Goff, LAR (+700), Tom Brady, TB (+800), Dak Prescott, DAL (+800), Matthew Stafford (+1400). Click here for more Most Passing Yards Odds.

Only 13 wideouts totaled more receiving yards than Allen Robinson (1157) in 2019. The Penn State product enters the season +2500 to gain the most receiving yards in 2020, the eighth shortest odds among wide receivers. Packers WR Davante Adams is currently at +1400, while emerging Lions star wideout Kenny Golladay is +2000. Click here for more Most Receiving Yards Odds.
