Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Packers are 7-point favorites to beat the Bears. The total, meanwhile, sits at 43.5 points. As of this writing, 60% of the public betting tickets are on the Packers to cover the point spread.

Chicago Bears

Bears OLB Leonard Floyd (hand) is not listed on the injury report. Floyd practiced with a club on his broken hand on Monday, and it looks like he will be able to play with the cast in the season opener. "It’s just not being able to open my hand to, like, catch or break or something," Floyd said of the club. "Other than that, it’s OK." With Khalil Mack now in the fold, the Bears have the makings of a solid pass-rushing duo.

Green Bay Packers

Packers S Josh Jones (ankle) was limited on Wednesday. Coach Mike McCarthy said Jones will work with the rehab group on Thursday, so he might be listed as less than limited on the official injury report. It seems like Jones is trending the wrong direction for Week 1.

NFL Betting Trends

Chicago

The under is 6-0 in the Bears’ last six games overall.

Green Bay

The over is 4-1 in the Packers’ last five games played in September.

Prediction

This Bears team should be one of the most improved in the NFL. Thanks to Matt Nagy, Mitchell Trubisky should see a big jump from his rookie year to his sophomore campaign. The Bears could also take advantage of the youth that the Packers have at the cornerback position. Meanwhile, even though the Bears are now highly underrated defensively, you know Aaron Rodgers is going to score plenty. I like the over.
