I've made a 180 yet again on this game, and I still don't feel all that good about it but it is what it is I guess?
Chicago Bears +3.5 @ home, -110. The Money Line juice +170 !! The total moved down to 42.5.
61% of the public money is coming in on the Packers. 54% on the ML and 72% of the ppl betting this game believe the Packers will cover the number! 56% are betting the game goes over.
I see this game as a defensive battle, at least it had better be if the Bears are to cover much less win! With the lack of a running game the Bears will pin their eyes back and come after Rodgers like there is no tomorrow! The Falcons couldn't get him on the ground, the Bears had better!
And lets to forget, by the numbers the Packers have the better DEFENSE:
5th in total yards / 9th for the Bears
5th in passing yards / 20th for the Bears
18th in rushing yards / 2nd for the Bears
2nd is points allowed / 4 for the Bears
So the Bears as we see have a better rushing defense! The only thing the Bears do better on offense than the Packers is rush the ball, thats it.
Both teams are hungry, that's a given, which QB will get better protection today Cutler or Rogers? Will the Bears be able to run the ball? That's folks is key for the Bears, we all know what Cutler tends to do with no running game and under pressure, FORCE THE BALL!
I like the juice on the Bears ML and I think they keep it close and cover the spread, maybe even win straight up? Home field does mean alot here in my humble opinion!
