NFL Free Pick | Packers @ Bears

Rate this Entry
The Green Bay Packers need a win to ensure they earn the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs. That would earn the Packers a bye next week and give them home field advantage throughout the postseason.
For the Bears, it’s real simple. Win and you’re in. Lose and you need help. One thing is real clear for bettors too. Backing Aaron Rodgers leads usually leads to good things, i.e. wins.


Game: Green Bay Packers (12-3, 9-6 ATS) at Chicago Bears (8-7, 8-7 ATS)
When: 4:25 PM ET, Sunday, January 3, 2020
Where: Soldier Field, Chicago, Illinois
Current Line: Green Bay -5.5 Total: 51.5
TV Coverage: FOX
Big Pack Attack
The Packers are on a roll. They have won five straight and have scored 30 or more points in all but one of those games. Rodgers could win another MVP award with his 4,000-plus yards passing and 44 touchdowns.
Things are looking extremely good for Green Bay. A win secures the top seed in the postseason. They have already beaten New Orleans, the apparent No. 2 seed. The team with the best defense in the NFC - the Rams - will start a backup quarterback on Sunday and might not even make the playoffs.
In other words, the road to Super Bowl LV is clear.
For bettors and sports handicappers, it’s clear that you should get behind Rodgers this Sunday, or almost any Sunday or Saturday or whenever Green Bay plays. The future Hall of Famer has been good to bettors his entire career.

Rodgers for MVP?

In all of his career games, Rodgers is 118-84-5 ATS. If you break it down a little more, Rodgers does even better against his divisional opponents, who he sees two times each season. In NFC North games, Rodgers is 45-27 ATS.
Rodgers has dominated Chicago just as his predecessor Brett Favre did. In 24 games against the Bears including an NFC championship game in 2011, Rodgers is 19-5 straight up with an average of 252 passing yards per game. He has 47 touchdown passes and has thrown just 10 interceptions against Chicago.

In Mitch We Trust?

Yes, the Bears have been on a tear of their own. Chicago has won its last three games. The Mitch Trubisky to Nick Foles back to Mitch Trubisky quarterback saga appears to have found its guy in Trubisky.
Chicago has averaged 36.7 points per game in their last three games. Two of those wins came as underdogs. Two of those wins were also over Houston (4-11) and Jacksonville (1-14).
There is also the Chicago defense to consider. The Bears have been a pretty stout unit for much of the 2020 season. Chicago’s defense is what kept the Bears in games and at 8-7 have given them a chance to qualify for the playoffs.
But, that same Bears defense gave up 41 to Green Bay the first time the two teams met and 34 to Detroit on Thanksgiving Day. Interestingly, in their last three division games, Chicago has given up an average of 34 points. For the season, the Bears have given up 28.8 points per game against divisional opponents.
Backing Aaron Rodgers usually leads to positive results and bettors can feel good about doing so on Sunday, but the better play is on the Total. Green Bay seemingly scores at will and Chicago has found its offensive groove.
Plus, the Bears need a win and to do so they will have to keep up with the Packers. Take the Over.
NFL Free Pick: OVER 51.5
