Bears Hire Mike Martz to Run the Offense

NFL betting odds are going to be affected by the latest move by the Chicago Bears.

The Bears hired Mike Martz as their offensive coordinator and his influence is going to change the Bears and their NFL lines.

NFL betting odds could drop on the Bears if they improve offensively. There is no doubt that the totals on Chicago games should go up.  Martz met with Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler before taking the job.  NFL lines had the Bears looking at a number of candidates including Minnesota quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers and Denver quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates.  Chicago head coach Lovie Smith really wanted Martz though and Chicago should be improved with Martz running the offense.

Martz won a Super Bowl as the offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams.  NFL lines had him losing the Super Bowl when he became the head coach. He is still thought of as an excellent offensive mind and many surrounding the Bears are expecting big things in NFL betting odds in 2010 for the Bears.  Lovie Smith was hired by Martz as the Rams defensive coordinator many years ago so the two have worked together.

The Bears really needed someone like Martz to improve in NFL betting odds. The Bears have struggled for years on offense as NFL betting odds stats showed and even with a big name quarterback like Cutler, they still couldn’t do much on offense. "Even though I've never worked with Mike Martz, I'm in favor of the Bears hiring anybody that can get us back on the right track, and hopefully back to a Super Bowl," Bears tight end Desmond Clark said, "Mike Martz has a great track record, and I'm excited to see how this offense could grow in 2010."

Chicago was 23rd in the league on offense in terms of total yards as NFL betting odds stats indicated. There is no question that Martz should get those numbers turned around in a positive direction.  Cutler showed ability last season but he threw too many interceptions and made too many mistakes. Having Martz at the helm should improve Cutler as a quarterback and it should make Chicago a more exciting team to follow in NFL lines.  Chicago was only 19th in points scored as NFL betting odds indicated and that is simply not something that will be acceptable with Martz running the offense.
