Las Vegas clearly knows something we do not about where Russell Wilson will be playing next season.
It seems increasingly unlikely Russell Wilson will be the starting quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks next year. The star signal-caller has voiced his frustrations all offseason. He would reportedly welcome a trade ahead of 2021. What is interesting is trade prop bets involving him have been taken off the board by Las Vegas sports books.
Is Wilson about to be dealt very soon?
By not being able to wager on where Wilson will be playing next, that likely indicates a blockbuster trade is imminent. If you want to investigate a tad deeper, you will see that the Chicago Bears‘ Super Bowl 56 odds have skyrocketed. Are these two moves correlated? If that is the case, then Bears fans have to be ecstatic to no longer be chasing the ghost of Sid Luckman at quarterback.
Russell Wilson Chicago Bears trade would alter Super Bowl odds
If the Bears do end up trading for Wilson, it will not come cheap. It will cost Chicago multiple draft picks, as well as a star player, someone along the lines of Khalil Mack heading Seattle’s way. Fortunately, the Bears appear to have enough talent to offset what they could potentially lose in a blockbuster trade. So yes, trading for Wilson does make the Bears a legit Super Bowl contender.
The Bears will no longer be routinely finishing in fourth place in the NFC North when it comes to quarterbacking prowess. If they can make the playoffs with much-maligned Mitchell Trubisky under center, the Bears can push for divisional supremacy and everything good that comes along with that. Simply put, Wilson would make the Bears’ Super Bowl odds skyrocket like they have.
Wilson is not a panacea for the Bears’ continued issues, but he will surely cover up a ton of them.
