The Chicago Bears are hoping for a big splash from rookie #1 draft pick Kevin White. It's assumed he'll open the season starting opposite Alshon Jeffery in Adam Gase's offense and with his speed, size and jumping ability, he'll have plenty of opportunities down field to make plays.
Online sportsbook Bovada recently sent out a number of odds for the 2015 NFL season, and while the Bears were listed as long-shots across the board, rookie wide receiver Kevin White was getting 10/1 to win Offensive Rookie Of The Year.
If he wins he'll make it consecutive OROY awards for wide outs, following the New York Giants' Odell Beckham Jr. Five rookies are receiving better odds to win the award, and those are Melvin Gordon (13/2), Jameis Winston (7/1), Marcus Mariota (7/1), Amari Cooper (15/2) and Todd Gurley (8/1).
The last OROY award for the Bears went to The A-Train, Anthony Thomas, who won in 2001.
Bovada has the Bears opening up at 50/1 to win the Super Bowl, with the Seattle Seahawks (11/2), Green Bay Packers (7/1), New England Patriots (15/2) and Indianapolis Colts (8/1) as the top 4 favorites.
Chicago is 28/1 to with the NFC Championships and 12/1 to win the NFC North. Bovada's odds has Chicago behind their other three North rivals, the Green Bay Packers (1/3), Detroit Lions (9/2) and Minnesota Vikings (9/1).
