It's pretty safe to say there's a lot of optimism surrounding the Bears this summer. Yes, even with the recent dust-up at OTAs.
CG Technology, an oddsmaking firm in Nevada, isn't buying in. They recently released the playoff odds for 21 NFL teams and the Bears aren't getting much love.

CG suggests the Bears' odds of making the playoffs is 28.6 percent, the same as the Detroit Lions and worse than the Atlanta Falcons and the Houston Texans, two of the worst teams in the league last season.
In the same vein, CG has the Packers' odds at making the playoffs at 63 percent.
The Bears have had back-to-back solid seasons, but fell short of making the postseason. They had a 10-6 record in 2012 but were on the outside looking in come January and they lost to the Packers in Week 17 last year.
The Patriots (-440), Broncos (-400) and Seahawks (-250) are the favorites to make the playoffs in CG's eyes while the Bears' postseason odds are at +250.
