The Bears Beat (05.24.12): Vegas doesn’t think too highly of the Bears

May 24th, 2012 - 5:37 pm

The over/unders on team wins are in and Vegas has set the mark for the Bears at 8.5 wins. This coming despite the fact that the Bears went 7-3 to open last season, played six games without Jay Cutler, still won 8 games, and improved their offense from last year. Also, the Chicago Tribune’s David Haugh says he wouldn’t be surprised if Cutler got a new deal before Matt Forte.
