Bet The Chicago Bears +10 Because…
Chicago’s defense has started to play much better than it did earlier in the season. The Bears had been giving up a lot of yards and a lot of points. But, Coach John Fox’s philosophy appears to have finally kicked in.
Chicago has allowed 19, 13 and 17 points in their last 3 games. The Bears are 2 and 3 straight up in their last three as a result. They even held Denver and hot QB Brock Osweiler to only 17 points in a 15 to 17 loss in their last game. If the Bears can make Aaron Rodgers uncomfortable, they might have a shot.

Bet The Green Bay Packers -10 Because…
Green Bay dominates Chicago at home. Last season’s game at Lambeau Field ended up Green Bay 55 and Chicago 14. Green Bay absolutely pummeled the Bears’ defense.
If this game had happened 2 weeks ago, Chicago might be only a -4 to -5.5 dog. But, since that time, Green Bay put a licking on Minnesota in a 30 to 13 road win. Minnesota’s D couldn’t stop the Green Bay rushing attack, which went for 124 yards. Green Bay’s defense held Minnesota’s offense to only 94 yards rushing. After losing 3 straight games to Denver Carolina and Detroit, the Packers bounced back in a huge road game against the team that is challenging them for supremacy in the NFC North. That gives the Packers the edge, right?
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
Green Bay played a terrific game against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11. The Packers showed the rest of the NFL that the 3 game losing streak was nothing more than an anomaly. Green Bay always plays hard against Chicago. These two teams have a rivalry that’s close to what you see in college football. Expect the Packers to bury the Bears on Thursday.
