Bears vs. Packers Spread Prediction

Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers, 12/16/18 Week 15 Predictions

The Chicago Bears could wrap up the NFC North Division crown on Sunday when they host the Green Bay Packers at 1:00 p.m. ET. That said, are they laying too many points to Aaron Rodgers and Co.?

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Bears are 5-point favorites to beat the Packers. The total, meanwhile, sits at 47 points. As of this writing, 51% of the public betting tickets are on the Bears to cover the point spread.

Green Bay Packers

Randall Cobb (hamstring) wasn't listed on the Packers' final injury report for Week 15 against the Bears. He started the week limited but was upgraded to full participation for Thursday and Friday's practices. Cobb had his best game of the season against Chicago back in Week 1 (9-142-1), but we wouldn't expect a repeat of that performance.

Chicago Bears

Allen Robinson (hip) is questionable for Week 15 against the Packers. Robinson was upgraded to full participation in practice Friday. If the probable tag still existed, that's likely where his status would've landed. He's fully expected to take his four-game touchdown draught into Sunday against the Packers.

NFL Betting Trends

Green Bay

The Packers are 1-6-1 against the spread in their last eight road games.

Chicago

The Bears are 6-1 against the number in their last seven games overall.

Prediction

Even though the Packers are technically still in the mix for a wild card spot in the NFC, all of the pressure is on the Bears today. They received a ton of praise all week for holding an explosive Rams offense to only six points last week but I also think that made Chicago overvalued today. L.A. quarterback Jared Goff clearly wanted nothing to do with that game last week and played like crap. Taking nothing away from a Bears defense that is excellent, that situation also favored Chicago greatly. Aaron Rodgers will not be intimidated by the weather or the Bears fan base. With Green Bay going 16-5 against the spread in its last 21 games in Chicago and 12-4 ATS in its last 16 games versus the Bears overall, the Packers are a principle play today getting points.
