The public really loves the Chicago Bears in 2019. They love them so much, that the Bears are the most popular bet to hoist the Lombardi Trophy as winners of Super Bowl LIV in Miami come Feb. 2nd.
With just over two weeks left until the Bears host the Green Bay Packers to kickoff the NFL’s 100th year, Caesars Sportsbook in Las Vegas revealed the top bets for Super Bowl LIV. Right there at the top are the Chicago Bears followed by the 2. Cleveland Browns, 3. Kanas City Chiefs, 4. New Orleans Saints and 5. Dallas Cowboys to round off the Top 5.
ESPN’s David Purdam wrote on the storyline for the Bears on Monday morning, talking to senior oddsmaker Alan Berg from Caesars about the Bears being at the top of the list.
“It’s been kind of overwhelming, the support [for the Bears],” said Alan Berg, the senior oddsmaker for Caesars Sportsbook. “Every time the Bears go to the playoffs, the following year, the money just pours in. Everybody gets optimistic.”
In addition to the Super Bowl bet, Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky and Browns QB Baker Mayfield are two of the most popular bets to win the NFL MVP award in 2019. Trubisky’s odds opened at 200-1 and have since moved to 50-1 after the public hammered those odds a few months back. You can bet Trubisky to win the MVP at 22-1 now at Caesars properties. Mayfield is the only QB that has seen more bets placed to win MVP than Trubisky.
Chicago will open up Week 1 on Sept. 5th hosting the Packers.
