He will be trying to get quarterback Jay Cutler to improve his play this season and the early signs are encouraging. Chicago could be a team to watch in online betting this NFL season.
Internet betting lists Chicago as a 25-1 long shot to win the Super Bowl this season. The Bears are hoping that Martz can improve Cutler’s passing this season with a new offensive philosophy. Cutler has said that he is spending at least a couple of hours each day in Martz’s office watching film. "It's been fun. It's been different," Cutler said. "I think all the guys have been excited about it. We can see the potential of what we can actually be." Cutler’s biggest problem last year was a league-high 26 interceptions. "It was a rough year," Cutler said. "I'm not gonna say it wasn't. I think it made me a better player. I haven't lost any confidence in my abilities. I think the future is really bright for the Chicago Bears offense.”
The Bears finished last season at 7-9 straight up and 6-10 against the Internet betting NFL odds. Chicago had a number of problems but an offense that was 23rd in the NFL was definitely a problem. Martz is known for his offensive schemes so he should improve Chicago’s production. If he can get Cutler to avoid making mistakes then the Bears will be improved. Chicago has the talent to be far better than they were a year ago. The Bears will need to be improved vs. online betting odds since Minnesota and Green Bay are in their division. Even Detroit looks better this season.
Last year the Bears did not have a receiver in the Top 40 in the league. Martz said that is going to change this season. "I love our receivers," Martz said, "I think that our receiver corps will be the strength of this team. You can put that in granite. I can promise you that one. There is not very many things I would say are un-retractable, but that one is pretty strong. This will be the strength of this football team. It's a terrific group." The Bears have Devin Hester, Johnny Knox, Earl Bennett and Devin Aromashodu at wide receiver. None of them were overly impressive last year so it will be interesting to see how they improve in Martz’s system.
