Week 1 NFL Odds: Colts Vs. Bears

The Chicago Bears are a 9.5-point favorite when they host the Indianapolis Colts in their season opener on Sunday. The line opened with the Bears as nine-point favorites but has quickly moved up to 9.5 on most all sites. The line is not uniform across all sportsbooks as some still have the Bears favored by only nine and other sites have the Bears favored by as much as 11 according to OddsShark. The over/under for the game opened at 40.5, but now sits at either 43 or 43.5 depending on the sportsbook.

The betting public expects a tough weekend for No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck as he makes his NFL debut on the road against a strong Bears defense that hopes to have Brian Urlacher back in the lineup. The Colts finished with the NFL's worst record last year while the Bears finished 8-8.
