NFL 2012 Odds: Bears Predicted To Finish Below Lions And Packers

The Chicago Bears added Brandon Marshall and Michael Bush to the offense during the offseason, and Jay Cutler will be ready to go when the season starts, but Nevada bookmaker Cantor Gaming -- the first Nevada bookmaker to release NFL season win totals so far -- doesn't think the Bears are quite ready to jump the Detroit Lions or the Green Bay Packers.

The line for the Packers is set at 12 wins while the Lions are a 9.5, the Bears hover at 8.5 and the Vikings are at just 6 wins. For more win total odds across the NFL and beyond the NFC North, here are the early lines via Covers.com:
