The Green Bay Packers (-4.5, -201) are playing the Chicago Bears (+4.5, +176) this Sunday at 1:00 PM EDT. The over / under is set at 45.
The Packers last played last weekend, beating the Bengals in a close 25-22 affair. The Bears last game was last Sunday as well, when they beat the Raiders 20-9 in what would ultimately be the last game under head coach Jon Gruden.
The last time these two teams played was on January 3, 2021 when the Packers beat the Bears 35-16. In that game, the Packers were -4.5 and covered the spread. Likewise, the total for that game was set at 48.5 and went over by 2.5 points.
Packers vs. Bears is one of the most notable rivalries in the NFL, albeit lopsided. The Packers have won the last 4 straight, and many consider the -4.5 spread too small. Though the Bears did show some promise against the Raiders, their offensive line is abysmal, and the injury to running back David Montgomery is a devastating blow. In the last 10 matchups, the Bears have come out victorious only once.
The Packers are 4-1 straight up and against the spread this season, thankfully to the combination of Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams. The Green Bay tandem put up career numbers last weekend against the Bengals, when Davante had 206 receiving yards. Rodgers has been stellar, throwing for 10 touchdowns and 1 interception in his last 4 games.
Rookie Justin Fields will need to be near perfect if there is any hope for the Bears. Perhaps the biggest strength of the Bears has been their defense: the Monsters of Midway have held 4 of their last 5 opponents under 100 rushing yards and lead the NFL with 15 sacks on the young season.
• The Packers are 4-0 against the spread in last 4 games
• The UNDER has hit in 16 of the Bears last 21 home games
• The Packers are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games in Chicago
