Chicago Bears 2022 Regular Season Wins Total Preview and Prediction

Chicago Bears Regular Season Wins Total Under 6.5 -120 (BET365)

Chicago Bears 2022 Betting Odds

The Bears were 6-11 straight up, and 6-11 against the spread last season. The bookmakers are not expecting any significant improvement here in 2022. The offensive line was a disaster last season, and they come into 2022 with one of the lowest offensive line rankings in the league. In fact only Seattle is projected to be worse on the offensive line than the Bad News Bears. Normally a team coming off a losing season looks to improve through the draft, but the Bears didn’t even have a first round pick this year due to the trade with the Giants that allowed them to move up and draft Justin Fields.

30th Ranked Passing Offense

The Bears couldn’t get anything going on offense last year, and things look bleak when you look at who their quarterbacks are. Justin Fields is expected to start, with Trevor Siemian and Nathan Peterman backing him up. To say that Fields struggled last season would be an understatement.

He threw for 1,870 yards with 7 TDs and 10 INTs while completing just 58 percent of his passes. He was sacked 36 times despite playing in just 12 games. The Bears were 3-9 with Fields at quarterback, and they were 3-3 when Andy Dalton or Nick Foles started at quarterback. You would have to think that their quarterback depth looks a little shaky for a team that doesn’t have an established starter.

Soft Schedule?

Bears fans looking for reasons to be optimistic might point to what is projected to be one of the league’s softest schedules. While it’s true that the Bears will face a lot of teams that struggled in 2021, many of those teams have made improvements via trade or the draft. The Bears on the other hand don’t look any better on paper than they did a year ago.

Two of Chicago’s wins last season came against the Detroit Lions, but the Lions should be a lot better this season. When you look up and down the schedule, there isn’t a lot of spots where you would expect Chicago to be a favorite. Aside from a Week 3 home game against the Texans, there don’t appear to be any other other games that you can pencil in as a “W”.

New Coach

Matt Eberflus was hired to replace Matt Nagy in the off-season. Nagy and GM Ryan Pace were fired following a disappointing 2021 season. Eberflus comes over from the Colts, where he was the defensive coordinator for the last four seasons. Under Eberflus, Indianapolis was the only NFL team to be ranked in the top-10 in scoring defense, run defense and takeaways each of the past two seasons.

He’s likely to be an upgrade after the clown show that Nagy put on last year, but there are still more questions than answers. Can Justin Fields be a bonafide star at the NFL level? Can anyone be asked to succeed behind this offensive line? What happens if Fields gets hurt and you have to turn the offense over to Siemian and Peterman?

Projected record: 5-12 Overall

WHO IS THE ICEMAN? He’s no soothsayer and he doesn’t have a crystal ball, but Jesse Schule can indeed predict the future. As a professional handicapper, it’s actually part of his job description. His clients have accused him of secretly possessing Marty McFly’s Sports Almanac, but he tells us the secret to his success is thanks in part to his fascination with history. The idea that you can predict the future by studying the past is nothing new. Historians have been doing it for years.

Handicapping Methodology: Jesse is not a believer in systems, programs or number crunching formulas to handicap games. He is firm in his belief that you aren't playing against the sportsbook, you are playing against the average Joe (other bettors). Jesse is notorious for attacking inflated point spreads, soft lines and totals that are a little out of whack. He also relies on a nearly photographic memory with an uncanny ability to tell you a player's history and stats dating back for decades. Anyone can look up how many touchdowns a guy has scored, Jesse can also tell you about the ones that he almost scored.

Money Management: His plays are rated based on a 1-10 star system, and he recommends wagering 0.5 percent of your bankroll per star rating. So a top rated 10* play would represent a bet equal to five percent of a player's bankroll.

Signature Plays:

AFTERNOON EXECUTIONER: This title is reserved for games with a start time between 12:00 – 4:30 ET. These are popular with action junkies who are dying for the games to get underway.

The TERMINATOR: Jesse's signature totals play, the Terminator has established a reputation as one of the most consistent winners in Schule's repertoire.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE: These plays represent a game where the stats show a significant trend which isn't reflected in the price.

GRIM REAPER BLOWOUT: His signature play reserved for medium to large favorites. High percentage plays for those who don't mind laying chalk.

HOT DIGGITY DOG: This is the Iceman's signature underdog play. About as rare as strawberries in December, you'll want to grab these whenever they are available
