The Chicago Bears earned a win in a flood-filled stadium against the San Francisco 49ers. Now, they’ll head out to Wisconsin to face the Green Bay Packers. With home-field advantage gone, Justin Fields is going to have to get creative. Their 19-10 win over the 49ers might not last long, as they face the Packers. If they can get a win, they might take the lead in the NFC North.

The Green Bay Packers suffered a 23-7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings last week. Many are ready to write them off this year, but we’d advise against that. They’ll need a few weeks to get their offense together, but this game is a favorable match-up. The secondary of the Bears isn’t very good and they’re also playing at home. So, who’s the best bet for Sunday night’s game?

Bears vs. Packers Betting Preview and Trends

The Chicago Bears were able to get a strong start to the season with a 1-0 victory. Field conditions didn’t allow for a lot of offense, but the Bears were able to put up 19 points. The Bears didn’t score a single point until the third quarter, but from there, it was all Chicago.

Justin Fields went 8/17 for 121 yards passing, two touchdowns and an interception. As we mentioned, the field didn’t allow for much of an aerial attack. This week, the field conditions will be much better in Green Bay. So, should they try to air it out more against the Packers?

The short answer is no; they should instead focus on their running game. The Packers had a tough time slowing down Dalvin Cook of the Minnesota Vikings. If the Bears start off strong in the running game, they could open up the passing game later.

The Green Bay Packers had a rough start to their season this year. Offensively Aaron Rodgers had a hard time connecting with his wide receivers. This was evident on a 75-yard drop from one of his rookie receivers. From that point on, Rodgers didn’t target him again.

As the game progressed, the Packers didn’t get much better on offense. Rodgers went 22/34 with 195 passing yards and an interception. The sole touchdown was from a two-yard run from AJ Dillion in the third quarter. Still, the Bears should be a much more favorable match-up.

Chicago doesn’t have quite the pass rush defense that the Minnesota Vikings do. It’s also important to remember that Aaron Rodgers didn’t play a single preseason game. Last year the Packers also had a slow start to the season but rallied back and won the NFC North.

Bears vs. Packers Picks

At first glance, some might be swayed to take the Chicago Bears in this game. Although they beat the 49ers in week 1, we don’t think they’re the best choice to win. Their history against Green Bay shows they’ve gone 0-6 against the spread in the last six games. Now, there’s one big difference between those games and this one, Davante Adams.

Without having Adams to throw to, Rodgers will have to trust his young receiving corps. At the moment, David Bakhtiari, the starting offensive tackle for the Packers, is questionable. Allen Lazard, a reliable target for Rodgers, is also questionable. So although we think the Packers will win, we’ll take the Bears +10.

Final Score 23-17 (Packers)

EXTRA POINTS

1. The Chicago Bears have gone 4-9 in their last 13 games.

2. Chicago is 0-6 in their last six when playing Green Bay in Wisconsin.

3. The Green Bay Packers are 1-5 against the spread in their last six games.

Best Bet: Chicago Bears +10 (-115) and Under 41.5 (-110)

Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers Recap NOV 29TH 2020

The Green Bay Packers rode the trio of Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones and Davante Adams to a 21-13 victory over the visiting Chicago Bears in the 200th edition of the rivalry on Sunday at frigid Lambeau Field.

Rodgers threw for 203 yards and one touchdown, Adams caught seven passes for 103 yards and the score, and Jones ran for 51 yards and two touchdowns.

Green Bay (11-3) has won three in a row and can clinch the NFC North title with a win at powerful Minnesota next Monday night. Chicago (7-7), the defending division champion, had won three in a row.

The Packers led 21-3 in the third quarter but had to withstand Chicago's late rally. The Bears had two chances after closing within 21-13.

On the first, Mitchell Trubisky threw a fourth-down incompletion under pressure from Kenny Clark from the Green Bay 49 with 1:42 to go.

On the second, with 1 second to go from the Packers 34, Trubisky threw a short pass to running back Tarik Cohen. After a series of laterals, the ball hit the ground and Green Bay's Tramon Williams recovered at the 2. Had tight end Jesper Horsted lateralled sooner to receiver Allen Robinson, the Bears might have scored.

The Packers struck first with a 29-yard touchdown pass to Adams on fourth-and-4. Adams beat slot corner Buster Skrine deep and carried Skrine the last 5 yards into the end zone.

Nursing a 7-3 lead into halftime, the Packers took charge with a dominant third quarter.

Jones scored on a 21-yard run to cap a scoring drive kick-started by a 34-yard catch-and-run by Adams and a 17-yard scramble by Rodgers.

The Packers extended the edge to 21-3 on their next drive. Rodgers found Jake Kumerow for a gain of 49, a play that survived a challenge by Bears coach Matt Nagy. Two plays later, Jones bulled through cornerback Kevin Toliver for a 2-yard score.

Chicago pulled within 21-6 on Eddy Pineiro's second short field goal of the day, a 27-yarder on the first play of the fourth quarter.

The Bears closed within 21-13 with 8:09 remaining on Trubisky's 2-yard touchdown to receiver Anthony Miller. Coupled with Green Bay's 10-3 win in Week 1, it was Chicago's first touchdown against the Packers in about 112 minutes of game time.

Chicago almost got the big break it needed on the Packers' ensuing drive.

On third-and-20, a scrambling Rodgers had the ball stripped by safety Deon Bush, with linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis recovering at the Packers' 22. However, on review, Rodgers' elbow was down before the ball came loose.

The Packers punted and defensive lineman Dean Lowry picked off Trubisky. Green Bay couldn't take advantage, but JK Scott's punt pinned the Bears at their 5 with 4:11 to play.
