The Chicago Bears are one of the more intriguing teams in the NFL as the 2020 season approaches. They have talent on both sides of the ball, but people seem to question whether or not they can make a run at the playoffs because of their quarterback situation. Bettors aren’t very confident in Chicago so far.

The biggest question mark surrounding Chicago right now is who will start under center. Mitch Trubisky led the team to the playoffs in 2018 but took a step back in 2019. The Bears weren’t content to keep Trubisky as the unquestioned starter. Enter former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, who guided the Eagles to a playoff win over Chicago in 2018. The uncertainty at quarterback clearly has some bettors hesitant to put their money down on the Bears.
Chicago has a playoff-caliber defense led by EDGE rusher Khalil Mack. He’s the type of player who can take over a game in the blink of an eye. If the Bears can play from ahead and unleash Mack on teams that are trying to play catch-up, they should have success this season.
Illinois Suspends In-Person Registration
Governor J.B. Pritzker’s recently suspended in-person registration for mobile sports betting in Illinois. Prior to Gov. Pritzker’s executive order, users were required to travel to retail sportsbooks if they wanted to sign up for mobile sports betting.
The executive order will expire on Sept. 19, but that gives Illinois bettors more than enough time to download the DraftKings Sportsbook app and register remotely. The NFL season starts on Sept. 10 and the Bears will play their first game on Sept. 13 on the road against the Detroit Lions.
