Green Bay at Chicago
Monday 10/07 09:00 PM Eastern
4 units on Green Bay +1.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64) RESULT: WIN
Another Monday night upset? You bet! The Pack has been relatively disappointing this year. They barely beat Detroit and Carolina and have not covered the spread yet this year. GB however, historically owns the Bears. Favre is 9-1 in Chicago and 16-4 against the Bears. He and the Pack handed Chicago two of its three losses last year. Favre also relishes the spotlight and plays his best under the national TV spotlight. He has this offense ticking (averaging 28 points per game) and should be able to take advantage of the fact that the Bears' defense is missing four starters due to injuries (this defense gave up 62 points in the last two games). I expect Green Bay to score a lot and don't see Jim Miller staging a successful come-from-behind win. Green Bay averages more points, passing yards, and rushing yards than Chicago and should walk out of Champaign with a win.
