Odds and Betting Insights
Green Bay are 2-7 ATS in their last nine away games and have struggled to find consistency on the offensive side of the ball. The Packers should be able to move the ball both in the air and on the ground against one of the NFL’s worst defenses. The Bears give up the sixth most points per game (25.4).
Player bid bettors will likely aim for this Aaron Jones and Christian Watson strong in this matchup. Jones ranks eighth in the NFL in rushing yards (821) and is second among all running backs with four touchdowns.
Chicago ranks 27th against run, allowing 143.9 yards per play on the floor. Jones and AJ Dillion find a favorable matchup to score against a Bears defense that has conceded 15 total touchdowns to running backs.
Watson, who struggled with injuries in his rookie season, has exploded in his last three games, having 12 receptions for 265 yards and hauling in six touchdowns.
The loss of top wideout Darnell Mooney (ankle) for the rest of the season leaves the Bears extremely thin on the offensive side of the ball. Cole Kmet, David Montgomery and Chase Claypool will see an increase in their overall target share.
