Sports Betting Spotlight: Chicago Bears 2017 season preview

The Review-Journal’s Todd Dewey, handicapper Kelly Stewart (@KellyInVegas) and Sunset Station sports book director Chuck Esposito preview the Bears’ season in the ninth of a series of 32 NFL team videos in 32 days.

The Bears went 3-13 last season, 7-9 against the spread and finished with an 8-8 over-under mark.

Chicago will start its post-Jay Cutler era with a quarterback competition between rookie Mitch Trubisky and Mike Glennon. The Bears return running back Jordan Howard, who finished second in the NFL in rushing last season with 1,313 yards and six touchdowns.
