NFL Football Betting Odds:
Green Bay Packers
Interestingly enough, when the Packers met the Bears in the opening week of the 2018 NFL football betting season, Green Bay was pegged as a massive -350 favorite over Chicago. Nearly a full season’s worth of action later and now the Packers are massive underdogs facing the Bears. Ultimately this has everything to do with the 5-7-1 record the Pack has posted this season. With no real hope of making the postseason, Green Bay can at least vie to spoil the Bears’ evening. Since Green Bay is 9-1 in their last 10 versus Chicago, it stands to reason that they should fare fairly well. However, this will be the second time they face a Bears team with Khalil Mack. The first time nearly saw Rodgers go down with a season-ending injury. In fact, the Packers nearly lost that game and truly the Bears did more to lose the game in the end than Green Bay did to win it.
Players to Watch: Aaron Rodgers (3,700 passing yards, 23 TD, 1 INT), Aaron Jones (720 rushing yards, 8 TD, 1 F), and Davante Adams (1,196 receiving yards, 12 TD, 92 REC).
The Bears enter this Sunday’s matchup sporting a 9-4 record that pegs them as the best team in the NFC North. But with a 2-1 record in their last 3, Chicago will be looking to bunker down come Sunday. All in all the Bears are pretty healthy for a December football team seeing as how they only have two players on the injury report. This is quite fortunate since they’ll need to be as healthy as possible heading into the playoffs. At the end of the day the Bears have had more consistent success than Green Bay and should be able to get the job done.
Players to Watch: Mitchell Trubisky (2,579 passing yards, 21 TD, 12 INT), Jordan Howard (713 rushing yards, 5 TD, 1 F), and Tarik Cohen (679 receiving yards, 4 TD, 63 REC).
