2 units on Chicago +6 (-105) (risk 2 to return 3.9) RESULT: WIN
The Packers were gift wrapped a game last week at home vs. Seattle, as Russell Wilson and Co. turned the ball over six times. They will be taking on a Bears team that is dramatically improved since the start of the season, especially on the defensive end. The Bears have allowed 18.7 points per game in their last four, and had the hot Lions on the ropes last week. The Bears have covered four straight games, and are 5-1 ATS in their last six as a home dog. Green Bay won 38-10 last week, and that looks mighty impressive, however, the Packers were out-gained by Seattle, despite six extra possessions. Aaron Rodgers is a huge asset, but some of that advantage is created by his mobility and threat to run. But with a strained calf this week, he is going to be limited. The injury will take away a good chunk of his advantage when plays break down, which has been often this year. The Bears are primed, at home vs. a division rival, and this will not be easy.Play the points on Chicago.
