NFL Matchup - Bears Packers Odds

Green Bay has dominated Chicago at Soldier Field over the years, going 10-3 ATS.

But in this NFC North battle is the total the best bet of the night? The past seven meetings of the Bears and Packers have played UNDER the total.

The Packers thrashed the Saints, and the Saints thrashed the Bears. Perhaps the opening spread of 3 points is flattering to Chicago.

Bears backers must be mindful of Green Bay's recent dominance as a favorite. They are 9-1 SU, 8-2 ATS past 10 games as betting chalk.

So far, 70% of the betting action from Odds Shark voters are on Green Bay at -3.5 (where the best value is at 5Dimes as of Friday afternoon).
