Online Football Betting Odds:
The Bears were hopeful that 2017 would be a turnaround year for the franchise. They had made some changes in the offseason, picked up some great draft picks and there was a positive atmosphere surrounding the organization. But in the end, 2017 turned out to be another disappointing year for Chicago. Which is certainly a bummer for the franchise, since Aaron Rodgers’ injury opened up the division. Moving forward, the Bears will be hoping that the pieces they have in place finally click together. Unfortunately for the Bears, they’ll be opening up their 2018 play by facing Aaron Rodgers on the road.
Players to Watch: Mitchell Trubisky (2,193 passing yards, 7 TD, 7 INT), Jordan Howard (1,122 rushing yards, 9 TD, 1 F), and Kendall Wright (614 receiving yards, 1 TD, 59 REC).
Green Bay Packers
2018 should prove to be a great season for the Packers. After another disappointing finish in 2017, it was clear that the organization needed some changes. Now that they’ve brought in some new coaching changes, Green Bay has the mentality to bring some change to the club. Not only that, their star quarterback, widely considered one of the best to ever do it, is coming in with a chip on his shoulder. Last season Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone and was unable to get his team to the playoffs. Now, all rested, Rodgers is ready for his revenge tour. Anyone who was watched Rodgers in his career knows the man is 10 times better when he has a chip on his shoulder. We should see something similar this year.
Players to Watch: Aaron Rodgers (1,675 passing yards, 16 TD, 6 INT), Jamaal Williams (556 rushing yards, 4 TD, 0 F), and Davante Adams (885 receiving yards, 10 TD, 74 REC).
