Packers vs. Bears NFL Betting Odds and Predictions by CashBet Sportsbook

Consider that the oldest rivalry in the NFL is the Chicago Bears vs. the Green Bay Packers.  These two teams go back to the very roots of betting on NFL history.  The National Football League was founded by the late great George Halas, owner and head coach of the Bears.  While the winning team of the Super Bowl is awarded the Vince Lombardi Trophy.  Lombardi is the late Hall of Fame coach of the Green Bay Packers dynasty of the 1960s.  Accordingly, these two teams have shared the same division since 1921.

Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers CashBet Wagering Analysis

Of course, the Bears and Packers are two of the most popular brands on any sportsbook board.  Both have large and generational fan bases.  And this rivalry being renewed on NBC Sunday Night Football will draw massive TV ratings and betting action.

The Packers at Lambeau Field is one of the most popular bets in pro football.  Additionally, Green Bay has a far better best sportsbook online brand with the betting public than the Bears.  Since 2011 the Bears have only two playoff appearances.

Bear Market for Chicago  

Last week, the Chicago Bears beat the San Francisco 49ers 19-10 as 6.5-point home dogs.  The game went under the Betting on football total of 38.5.  Chicago has a record of 1-0 straight up, 1-0 against the spread, and 0-1 over/under the total.

Justin Fields lofted a short pass to Dante Pettis, who took it for a 51-yard touchdown that kicked the Bears into gear.  Fields threw for two second-half scores.  While Eddie Jackson set up a TD with an interception.  And Chicago gave Matt Eberflus a win in his head coaching debut.  The Bears beat the 49ers on a rain-soaked Sunday.

Pack Had No Attack in Season Opening Loss

Last Sunday, the Green Bay Packers lost 23-7 against the Minnesota Vikings as 2.5-point road dogs.  The game went under the NFL bets total of 46.5.  Green Bay has a record of 0-1 straight up, 0-1 against the spread, and 0-1 over/under the total.  

Minnesota’s Justin Jefferson stated before the season his goal was to be the best receiver in the league.  Jefferson can already stake a claim to that status.  At the same time, Aaron Rodgers can only wish Jefferson was on his side.

Jefferson smashed rival Green Bay for 184 receiving yards and two touchdowns in a record-setting first half.  In turn, Minnesota gave new Vikings coach Kevin O’Connell a win in his first game Sunday.  And the Vikings scored their largest margin of victory over the Packers with Rodgers at quarterback.

Following his first two seasons, Jefferson totaled the most receiving yards (3,016) in a player’s first two years in the NFL.  Against Green Bay, Jefferson set an all-time Vikings receiving record with 158 yards in the first half.

Additionally, Kirk Cousins completed 23 of 32 passes for 277 yards without a turnover.  Cousins was targeting Jefferson on more than a third of his throws.  And he kept the Packers on their heels for most of the afternoon.

Last season O’Connell served as offensive coordinator of the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams.  He had Jefferson moving all over the formation to help keep him away from star Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander.

Meanwhile, Rodgers’ first game without Davante Adams was filled with frustration.  Rodgers went 22 for 34 for 195 yards.  Subsequently, coach Matt LaFleur blamed himself.  Second-round draft pick Christian Watson let what would’ve been a 75-yard touchdown pass slip through his hands early in the game.
