NFL Week 15 Free Pick: Take Green Bay. According to latest NFL trends, the Packers have covered in 4 straight against the Bears and in 4 of their last 5 trips to Solider Field. Green Bay picked up a 23-10 win over the Bears already this season and did so by forcing turnovers against the Bears. Chicago is having issues protecting quarterback Jay Cutler and the Bears’ defense has key injuries that will make it tough to stop Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense. Chicago is in somewhat of a freefall while the Packers are grinding out wins. Stick with the hot team in Green Bay.
