Packers Favored by a TD Against Running Bears

on Sep 27, 2017 | 0 comments

The Green Bay Packers are 6-0 straight up and 5-1 vs the spread in their last 6 home games. This Thursday night, the Packers welcome in the Chicago Bears who are coming off of a surprise win at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers.  The line in this game has the Packers favored by a full touchdown at -7 with an over/under of 45.5. In the long, long, long history of Packers v Bears, these teams are actually tied 93-93-6 in the regular season. Never underestimate the intensity that these 2 teams will be playing with in this historic division rivalry.

The Bears came into this season looking like one of the doormats of the league and things didn’t start out well with pretty much all of their top receivers getting injured. Thanks to the emergence of Tyrik Cohen, Chicago has unleashed a relentless running attack on the league.  They held the Super Bowl champion Atlanta Falcons (oh wait, didn’t they win?, I missed the last few minutes of that game), ok, Super Bowl loosing Atlanta Falcons to a 23-17 game in week 1, then got trounced by an emotional, post-Irma Tampa Bay Buccaneers 29-7, but rose to the occasion against the Steelers in week 3, knocking them off 23-17 in overtime.  For this game, we can probably expect a lot of running and passes to Howard and Cohen all game long, if the Packers can’t limit the running game, then the Bears will definitely be in this one.

Stats the Bears Like

The Packers came into this season as one of the favorites in the NFC to make it to the Super Bowl, but have struggled a bit out of the gates.  Green Bay won an ugly one 17-9 at home against Seattle to open the season, then lost a shootout 34-23 to Atlanta, then needed overtime to knock off a struggling Bengals team last week.  With their fair share of injuries to the wide-receivers (maybe not as unfair as the Bears have dealt with), this team has been leaning heavily on Ty Montgomery to run over opposing defenses.  While this looks like an easy ‘get right’ game with the lowly Bears coming to town, the Packers will be hoping for their wide receiver play to be firing on all cylinders to secure the win and beat the spread.

Stats the Packers Like

Given the history, the smart money is on the Packers covering the spread, especially when you consider that the Bears are 0-6 straight up in their last 6 games coming off of a win.  That’s how Vegas views this game, but there is a reason why they play the games…anything can happen, especially on a Thursday Night Football game.
