The Chicago Bears must win in Week 17 if they want to make the playoffs, but the Green Bay Packers could snuff out their postseason hopes. The Packers currently hold the top seed in the NFC, which is more crucial in 2020 as it provides the winner with the only first-round bye.

A Green Bay loss would put that bye in jeopardy, so this game is important for the Cheeseheads as well, setting up a pretty key Week 17 matchup. Let's turn to the experts for their picks.

Packers vs Bears Picks Week 17

CBS Sports picks are from their panel of experts, numberFire picks are from their NFL game projections, Sporting News picks are from Vinnie Iyer and betting favorites are from FanDuel Sportsbook's Week 17 NFL odds.

Winner:
CBS Sports: Packers (8)
numberFire: Packers
Sporting News: Packers
Betting Favorite: Packers -4.5

Against the Spread:
CBS Sports: Packers (7), Bears (1)
Sporting News: Bears

No one expects Green Bay to lose, even on the road against a rival that is playing for the postseason. Two of the experts did take the Bears to cover the spread, though.
