While Aaron Rodgers hasn't been a great source of TDs at Soldier Field recently, he has proven he can rack up yards against this Bears team. Rodgers threw for more than 268 yards in both of his starts against Chicago in 2018, averaging 280.0 per game. He's also exceeded this total in three of his last five starts against Chicago.

3. First Half Spread - Chicago Bears: -2.5 (-120)

Despite Chicago's 1-2 record against Green Bay over the last three meetings between these two, the Bears have actually been dominant in the first half. Chicago has led at halftime in two of those three games. In those two games, the Bears built pretty decisive halftime leads, with Chicago taking an average lead of 14.0 points into halftime.

2. Mitchell Trubisky - Passing Yards: Over 235.5 (-118)

Mitchell Trubisky has been up and down throughout his career thus far, but he's been pretty effective when playing at home against Green Bay. In two career home starts against the Packers, Trubisky is averaging 266.0 passing yards per game. The third-year starter has also thrown for at least 235 yards in each of his home starts against Green Bay.

1. Aaron Rodgers - Passing TDs: Under 1.5 (+104)

Soldier Field has not been kind to Rodgers in recent years. He's failed to throw a touchdown in each of his last two starts at Soldier Field. The last time he threw a TD in Chicago was 2015, when the Bears were still starting Jay Cutler, who has since become a reality TV star. Facing a Bears defense that surrendered a league-best 17.7 PPG in 2018, Rodgers could struggle to toss two TDs tonight.
