Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers Prediction & Betting Odds - NFL Preview

The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers get the new NFL season underway at Soldier Field on Thursday evening.

There are plenty of reasons for confidence in the Bears’ camp going into their second season under coach Matt Nagy. They had their first double-digit winning season since 2012 last season, in which they had arguably the best defense in the league and they go into this matchup having won their last five home games.

As for the Green Bay Packers, they enter the new season with Matt LaFleur as head coach and they have won each of their last four regular season openers. However, the Packers have lost seven of their last eight road games.

Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers Betting Lines & Prediction

In terms of Bears Vs Packers predictions for this game, much could depend on Aaron Rodgers for the Packers. Quarterback Rodgers didn’t play for the Packers in the preseason, so the question is whether he will benefit here from being fresh, or will he struggle to shake off the rust and immediately find his game rhythm?

The Bears are the bookies favourites on the Money Line at -170 (1.58) with bet365, with the betting odds on the Packers to win being +150 (2.50) also with bet365.

If those odds lack appeal for backers of the Bears, then you could look at the Point Spread betting lines, where the Bears -3.0 are -113 (1.88) at Sports Interaction. That’s the tip we are going with for this game, as Rodgers struggled against the Bears’ defense last year and they are little changed for this season.

For backers of the Packers, you can get them +3.0 at -105 (1.95) at bet365.
