Tonight on NFL network an NFC North power struggle will ensue when the Chicago Bears host the Green Bay Packers at 8:20 PM ET. The Bears vs Packers Odds have the Packers shaded as -4.5 favorites on the point spread after opening at -6. The Bears led by star QB Jay Cutler have garnered lots of sharp NFL betting action which caused Green Bay’s number to shrink but at -4.5 the action has been split on both teams. Below is a closer look at this NFL Week 2 match-up from our NFL picks experts. The Packers vs Bears Odds have Green Bay at -4.5 at increased -115 juice.
NFL Picks Analysis: The Packers defense right now appears to be a one man show with OLB Clay Matthews and little else. Finding an answer for Jay Cutler and all of the Bears offensive weapons could be a real issue. Even the Green Bay offense is not executing at a high level which is really concerning. Green Bay RB Cedric Benson has been unable to create balance for QB Aaron Rodgers and the Bears run defense is strong. The Bears vs Packers Odds Total is at 51.0 points.
Chicago is playing with confidence on both sides of the ball and the aura of invincibility that the Packers had during their 15-1 season last year has all but evaporated. The bottom line is that the Bears appear to be better than last year while the Packers have regressed. The Bears also have a hidden x-factor with their superior special teams.
