Packers vs Bears Prediction & Pick

NFL fans are in for a treat as one of the oldest rivalries in the league is back in action on Sunday. The Packers have had the upper hand as of late, winning each of their last seven games against the Bears. Of course, those wins have come with quarterback Aaron Rodgers leading the offense down the field.

Rodgers suffered a rib injury against the Eagles and remains questionable to suit up in Week 13, though. Backup Jordan Love could be called into action, but the good news is that Chicago has posted the second-worst total defense DVOA rating in the NFL. It also allows 25.4 points per game.

I trust the Packers to emerge victorious behind a heavy dose of Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon.

Final Score Prediction: Packers: 27 | Bears: 21

Packers vs Bears Best Bet

Love looked much improved in his few drives on Sunday and even threw a long TD pass. Combine that with the fact that Fields "has a chance to play" and a point total set at 42.5 seems a bit too low. Both the Packers and Bears are allowing at least 29.7 points per game over the last three weeks.

The total has hit the over in each of the Bears' last six games as well as in six of Green Bay's last nine games. The over has cashed in four of the Packers' last five games against a divisional opponent as well. Look for head coaches Matt LaFleur and Matt Eberflus to pull out all the tricks they possibly can.

Bet: Over 42.5 Points (-110)
