vs. Chicago Bears: Point spread and odds
NFL Week 1 games continue this weekend and we begin our point
spread and betting odds previews with one of the most
anticipated games - the matchup between the Indianapolis Colts
and Chicago Bears. The game is set to start on Sunday at 1:00pm
EST at Soldier Filed in Chicago and the odds makers have already
published the top odds and the latest point spread, which you
can find below.
We have the Colts - Bears game odds and
spread courtesy of the popular online sportsbook
Bookmaker, where we found the
Bears to be an absolute favorite with odds to win their Week 1
NFL game at -500, while the Colts are a big underdog sitting on
+400 odds to grab a W in their visit to Chicago this Sunday.
Undoubtedly the long odds on the Colts to win the game this
weekend are due to their rookie quarterback Andrew Luck, who is
yet to prove himself a good replacement for Manning. But f he
does - it's going to be a windfall for those betting on
Indianapolis. Meanwhile the -500 odds on the Bears makes it too
risky to wager, compared to the small return on the investment.
The Indianapolis Colts vs. Chicago Bears point spread is
at -9.5 points chalk the Bears and it's much better to bet the
spread than the odds. Total points expected by
Bookmaker are currently at 43.5
with both over and under paying out on -110, thus one may be
certain this could change before Sunday.
Overall, our betting opinion on the
Colts - Bears game this week is to skip the -500 odds on the
Bears (again, too risky for the small reward offered by the
odds) and look into the point spread or the over-under, if you'd
like to include this Week 1 NFL game into your betting plans.
The +400 odds on the Colts are always great if you are looking
for an upset.
