Packers vs. Bears ATS Pick

Bears +3.5 (-115) ★★★

The Packers lost a tightly contested game against the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday night, and it just about ended their playoff hopes. It’s hard to know how a team will react after such a defeat.

But, the real deciding factor for this game is whether Fields can be effective. Though the Bears lost five in a row, their last three defeats with Fields were by a combined 7 points.

The Packers haven’t done anything this season to prove they should be road favorites. Additionally, they’re only 4-8 against the spread. Plus, Fields was a full participant in practice Thursday. Since he's expected to start against the Packers, the Bears are the right pick. 

Packers vs. Bears O/U Pick

Under 44.5 (-107) ★★★

With so much focus on Denver Broncos QB Russell Wilson and the Broncos' offense, it's gone relatively unnoticed how bad the Packers are offensively this season. They average just 19.6 points per game, an NFL bottom 10.

The Bears scored 24 or more points in their last five games with Fields under center, bringing their PPG average up to 20.9. Fields is ready to play, but it’s hard to know if he'll be 100 percent. Even if he's close to that, this line is probably 2 points too high.

Packers vs. Bears Prop Pick

Packers Under 2.5 total touchdowns (-105) ★★★

In two of their last three matchups, the Packers scored four touchdowns. Meanwhile, the Bears allow an average of 25.4 PPG.

In three of their previous five contests, Green Bay scored 17 points or fewer. Two of those three games came on the road. Chicago's last two home meetings were against high-powered offenses, the Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions. In the Bears’ three other home games this season, they've allowed fewer than three touchdowns to teams with mediocre offenses. The Packers fall into this category.

The Bears had a tough schedule of late, which destroyed their defensive numbers. Look for them to get it right against Green Bay this week.
