NFL Week Three Results: Bears on course for play-offs
Three weeks into the season and Chicago’s unbeaten NFC record is convincing sceptics that they are genuine play-off contenders.
Online bookmakers are offering free bets to new customers that can be redeemed on American Football games this season.
Bears showed their Super Bowl credentials when beating fellow contenders Green Bay Packers 20-17 at Soldier Field on Monday night.
Robbie Gould kicked a late field goal to clinch the win after Bears were awarded their seventeenth penalty in an unusually sloppy Packers display.
Bears swung a number of doubters when they upset the Cowboys in Dallas last week following an unconvincing win against Denver in the season opener.
Their 3-0 record backs up Chicago’s pre-season belief that they can make it all the way to Arlington in February.
While pundits across the pond are beginning to agree, here in the UK, bookmakers remain unconvinced.
After beating the Packers, odds of 10/1 are still available with Totesport for Chicago to win the NFC and Victor Chandler bet 33/1 for the Bears to win the Super Bowl.
