Our Prediction:

Chicago Bears will win

Green Bay Packers – Chicago Bears Match Prediction | 20-08-2019

Teams score an average of 24.2 points per game against Green Bay, and the Packers rank 21st in that category. One reason for that is the +6 turnover ratio and defense/special teams scoring. The Packers average 26.5 points per game, fifth-best in the league. San Diego is the only other team in the league with a losing record who has scored more points than their opponents for the season.

If it gets out of hand tonight, many Bears fans will be hoping to see Trubisky take over and give a glimmer of hope to a franchise looking to return to relevance. 2 to acquire, especially if they lose this game to fall to 1-3 on the year. There is a stark difference in situations, however. Rodgers sat for three seasons behind a still effective Packers legend, Brett Favre, while Trubisky is working behind a journeyman in Glennon. Its doubtful the Bears wait too much longer to reveal the UNC product that they traded up to No. Barring a wildly unexpected surge, Chicago likely wont have much to play for this season and could opt to give its rookie QB some run.

Week 15: vs. Chicago Bears

2019 outlook:The Chargers might be the most balanced team the Packers will face in 2019. It's almost amazing they came out so flat against the Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs. There's no reason they can't reach the Super Bowl in 2019. Phillip Rivers played at an MVP level last season and the team may have had the best secondary in the NFL lead by Desmond King and Derwin James.

2019 outlook:It looked like the Eagles were going to reach the Super Bowl again with Nick Foles under center. But the Saints were able to beat the Eagles in the divisional round of the playoffs and Foles is now with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Philadelphia is hoping Carson Wentz can stay healthy because he is one of the better young QBs in the NFL. There's no reason the Eagles can't be a Super Bowl contender in 2019.

2019 outlook:The Packers had a better overall record than the Lions, but the Lions swept the Packers last season. So fans are expecting a big jump in Year No. Ultimately, the Lions need more consistency from QB Matthew Stafford and the defense. 2 of the Matt Patricia era. They proved they can play with big boys as they blew out the New England Patriots and they hung tough with the Los Angeles Rams, but they had their share of bad losses last season.

Bearsvs Packers

Chicago is 2-1 against the spread (ATS) in 2017, while the Packers are just 1-2. There arent many outside the Windy City giving the Bears a chance to win this contest, but they do have at much better shot of covering the spread. Before getting to his against the spread pick, heres a quick peek at the start time, TV schedule, latest odds and more for this Week 4 Thursday Night Football game. Jon Price of SportsInformationTraders.com, a Las Vegas handicapper, will be weighing in on this matchup with his pro prediction.

They swept the season series in 2016 and havent lost to the Bears since 2015. As you can see, the Packers have been dominant in this spanwinning 12 of the past 15 matchups. It is interesting, however, to note that the last time the Bears beat Green Bay actually occurred in a Thursday contest, which took place at Lambeau Field on Thanksgiving Day. Chicago has surprisingly had more success on the road when playing this NFC North rival, as two of its three victories occurred at The Frozen Tundra.

2019 outlook:The Cowboys are coming off a strong 2018 season as they reached the divisional round of the playoffs. The Cowboys have a good nucleus of young players such as Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Jaylon Smith, Demarcus LawrenceandLeighton Vander Esch. However, they know they could have accomplished more based on the way they played down the stretch.

Current Bears vs Packers Odds

The Bears are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games played. Green Bay is 4-5-1 ATS in their last 10 games played. However, the Bears are 2-1 ATS in their last three games played in Soldier Field. Chicago is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games played. Head to head, the Packers are 6-4 ATS in their last 10 meetings with the Bears. The Packers are 2-3-1 ATS in their last six games played on the road.

That debacle resulted in the firing of long-time coach Mike McCarthy and the hiring of Ryan La Fleur. The Green Bay Packers are looking to forget a 2018 season where they won just six games. After an injury-plagued 2017 season, Aaron Rodgers started behind center for 16 games but still, the Packers ended up with their fewest wins during a season in a decade.

Similar to the above match-up, this one may be more significant on paper than on the field. Chicago averages only 192.9 yards per game, ranked 22nd in the NFL, but Devin Hester has begun to show promise as a wide receiver and Kyle Orton has been solid. While the Packers yield only 206.3 yards per game, ranking just above the equator (13th in the league), they have been gashed lately by New Orleans and Houston, and at key times against Carolina and Jacksonville, as well.

SBD Predicted Score

Both coaches' stock has fallen since they were lauded as among the best in the league in the past two seasons. The coach who loses will surely be on the hot-seat, and could even get fired. Both have made moves that warrant their job security being questioned. Both have a chance to all but ensure their employment for one more season with a win.
