These two teams kicked off the NFL season this year with a low-scoring affair that the Packers managed to win with a final score of 10-3.

Last season the Bears were NFC North champions but that won’t be happening this year. They trail the Packers by three games and the Vikings by two, so they’ll need to do very well in their last games in order to get that final wild-card playoff spot.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Green Bay Packers are coming off a fairly unconvincing win against the Washington Redskins in week 14. What should have been a blowout at home against bad team turned into a 20-15 close win to bring the Pack to a 10-3 record. The Bears have been surging lately, winning three in a row and four of their last five to improve their record to 7-6. They’ll make things tough for Green Bay’s middling offense.

In three of his last five starts, Aaron Rodgers has been held under 200 passing yards. Mitch Trubisky has looked a lot better than he did at the beginning of the season, and in his last three he holds a 77 percent passing completion.

The Packers are 2-1 against the spread in their last three home games.

Chicago Bears

The Bears are coming into this one fresh off of a convincing win over the Dallas Cowboys in a game they completely dominated. Trubisky looked, well, not like himself, as he led his team to a 31-24 win at Soldier Field. He threw for 244 yards, earning three touchdowns and throwing just a single interception. His chemistry with WR Allen Robinson was palpable, as Robinson caught five passes for two touchdowns.

Things are never easy for the Bears when they’re at Lambeau, and it’ll be made tougher by absence of Roquan Smith, whose rush defense would have made things more challenging for Aaron Jones and the Green Bay rushing game. It’s Khalil Mack who the Packers need to worry about. In three contests against the Pack since joining the Bears in 2018, Mack has made 3.5 sacks, forced two fumbles and returned an interception for a TD.

What Chicago needs to remember is that in that season-opening game, they sacked Aaron Rodgers five times, held him to 203 passing yards and Aaron Jones to just 44 rushing yards.

Green Bay Packers

Yes, the Packers beat the Redskins in Week 14. No, it wasn’t pretty. They scored 14 points in the first quarter, but in the last three quarters of the game only managed to put another six on the board.

Once again the issues are the glaring holes in their run defense. Against Washington they gave up 121 yards. Green Bay has the 25th-ranked run defense in the league.

Aaron Rodgers was far from perfect against the Redskins, but thankfully the Packers have a couple of reliable Aarons in the stable, and running back Aaron Jones gave the Redskins’ run defense a big headache as he rushed for 134 yards and a touchdown. Oh yeah, he also led the team on receiving yards with 58 on six carries.

Jones is fast becoming one of this franchise’s greatest all-time running backs, and has joined the ranks with Ahman Green and Jim Taylor as RBs who’ve run 1200 yards for at least 15 scores in a single season. Jones has 1204 yards and 15 touchdowns this season.
