Were it not for a missed field goal during the first round of the playoffs last season, the Bears and quarterback Mitch Trubisky — who went 12-4 during the regular season — would have been competing for a berth in the NFC Championship game.

But, Cody Parkey’s field goal failed to make it through the uprights and the Bears fell to the Eagles by a point.

Despite the way the season ended, there was plenty of optimism for the Bears this season and for Trubisky, who finished last season with 24 touchdowns, 12 interceptions and more than 3,000 passing yards, to continue to improve. There was so much optimism for Trubisky that some sportsbooks even took bets on him winning this year’s MVP award.

Unfortunately for Chicago, the Bears are now 3-5 on the season and Trubisky has looked like anything but an MVP. He’s been so bad in fact that one oddsmaker, PointsBet Sportsbook, has decided to refund MVP bets that were placed on the 25-year-old.

Trubisky, who has thrown seven touchdowns and three interceptions in eight starts this season, is currently a +50,000 prop bet to win the MVP award. Only Marcus Mariota and Andy Dalton, both of whom have been benched, have longer odds of winning the award.
