The Chicago Bears have been one of the busiest teams in free agency, making significant veteran additions, most notably Keenan Allen and D'Andre Swift on the offensive end and safety Kevin Byard on the defensive side of the ball. Their activity should continue as they still have plenty of cap space and hold the first and ninth overall picks in the 2024 NFL Draft.

The fact that the Bears will look entirely different next season should excite fans after three straight losing seasons. However, oddsmakers seem less than enthused about the offseason Chicago is having. In fact, one sportsbook has lowered the Bears' chances of winning the Super Bowl after their acquisitions.

Chicago Bears' Super Bowl Odds Take Negative Turn After Free Agency

On BetMGM, the Chicago Bears started the offseason at +4000 to win the Super Bowl. This was obviously still a long shot but with the right free agency signings and draft picks, one could see a potential rise in Chicago's odds. Instead, their odds are at +5000 and tied with the Indianapolis Colts, solidly in the extremely long shot category.

There is still plenty of time left in the offseason for the Bears to change their fate. They still have to trade Justin Fields, bring in their presumed new quarterback Caleb Williams, and fill out the rest of their roster. General manager Ryan Poles has proven that he is not shy to make big swings on the trade market and he may need to do so again for the Bears to be considered a serious contender.
