Rodgers Looks to Renew Ownership
After losing back-to-back games, the Green Bay Packers (4-8) are out of the playoff conversation. However, Green Bay will not lack motivation this week as it takes on the Chicago Bears (3-9).

Both teams are sliding against the spread (ATS), with the Bears going 0-3 and the Packers tallying 1-2 over the last three games.

Packers vs Bears Betting Lines
Green Bay’s Uncertain Future
The Green Bay Packers have stung bettors after opening as a Super Bowl contender. Since then, the Packers’ odds have climbed to +25000. The franchise’s future is up in the air. Despite signing a four-year extension in the offseason, no one is sure what quarterback Aaron Rodgers will do following the season. The Packers are on track to finish with their third losing season since 2009. Defeating the Bears could temporarily put Green Bay’s mind at ease.
Stopping the run will be a major key. The Packers had an all-time bad performance in Week 12, allowing 363 rushing yards against the Eagles. Chicago boasts the NFL’s top run game. Green Bay’s front seven must be more disciplined against a mobile quarterback after Philadelphia’s Jalen Hurts totaled over 150 rushing yards.
On the injury front, Rodgers is expected to return after leaving the last game with a ribs injury. Green Bay’s third-lead tackler, linebacker De’Vondre Campbell, is questionable with a knee. He has missed the last four games and would be a huge boost against the run.

Bears Hoping to Turn the Tide
At 3-9, the Chicago Bears are poised for a high first-round pick. Losing the remaining six games would help Chicago in the draft. However, the Bears will not roll over against the Packers. Green Bay has controlled the rivalry under Rodgers, but Chicago hopes to take control after finding its franchise QB.
In October, the Bears were playing well. The offense rolled with an unstoppable run game. Over the last four games, Chicago is 1-3 ATS and allowing 31 points per game, which could get worse following several key injuries.
Within the last two weeks, running back Khalil Herbert (hip) and offensive lineman Lucas Patrick (toe) was placed on the injured reserve list. In the previous game, the Bears were without starting QB Justin Fields (shoulder). Safety Eddie Jackson (foot) and wide receiver Darnell Mooney (ankle) also sustained season-ending injuries. Starting safety Jaquan Brisker (concussion) and wide receiver Chase Claypool (leg) are questionable for Sunday.
Clearly, injuries are a major problem. Fields’ status will be the most important to watch. If he does not go, Chicago will likely lose its sixth in a row.

Packers vs Bears Picks & Prediction
Predicted Score: Packers 27, Bears 20
- Worth betting on the Moneyline?
The Packers have struggled, but Green Bay beating the Bears is as consistent as the USA men’s soccer team getting knocked out of the World Cup. The offense comes off a solid game, while Chicago has one of the NFL’s worst defenses. Green Bay plays best when the run game is working, and the Bears rank 27th in run defense. Hammer the Packers on the moneyline.
- Worth betting ATS?
Fields’ questionable status is a big factor. Plus, backup QB Trevor Siemian is doubtful with an oblique injury. Chicago has also gone under its rushing average in back-to-back games. There is a lot of unknown in this one due to various injuries. I would lean toward Green Bay ATS, but it’s a risky bet.
- Worth betting on the Totals?
The Bears have gone over in six consecutive games, while the Packers have hit the over in three straight. With both defenses struggling against the run, take the over.
- Tempting Props?
If Fields plays, go with the over on his rushing yard total. His legs are a greater threat than Hurts, who totaled over 150 rushing yards last week against the Packers.
