Since opening at 25/1 to win the 2013 Super Bowl, the Chicago Bears have seen their odds improve dramatically in the eyes of Vegas handicappers. The Bears' odds currently sit at 8/1 at the various MGM sportsbooks, and that gives them the fourth best Super Bowl odds in the league.
Grantland's Bill Barnwell on the change:
[T]he Chicago Bears have gone from 25/1 all the way down to 8/1, where they sit behind just three other teams. It's not a surprise that the Bears would see action, since Vegas knows that the Bears are a perennially popular team and prices that into their line, but a move that pushes their odds ahead of teams like the Steelers and Eagles is pretty stunning.
