After an awful game vs Vikings last week the Green Bay Packers will host the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night at the Lambeau Field to play their second game of the season. These teams met twice last season and the Packers won both games and are 6-0 in the last 6 games at home vs Bears.
The Bears didn't show much and struggled against the Steelers defense in Week 1 as they lost the game 20-23. In the defeat, Joe Burrow threw four interceptions and lost a fumble. Justin Fields was 8 of 17 for 121 yards and threw two second-half touchdown passes, Eddie Jackson set up a touchdown with an interception, and Chicago earned Matt Eberflus his first win as head coach..
Defensively the Bears played pretty good as they allowed 155 passing yards, 176 rushing yards, and only 10 points. With nine tackles, including a half-sack, Roquan Smith led the Bears and was active all over the field.
Green Bay Packers
The Packers were awful in week 1 against the Vikings and was evident the Davante Adams absence. They scored only 7 points in the whole game and Aaron Rodgers went 22 for 34 for 195 yards. With 45 yards and one touchdown on 10 carries, AJ Dillon appeared to be the most potent weapon in the Green Bay offense.
Defensively, this team struggled allowing the Vikings to gain 395 yards, including 269 through the air, and score 23 points, 17 of which came in the first half. David Bakhtiari and right tackle Elgton Jenkins were both inactive, as was Allen Lazard. Lazard is expected to participate in this game.
Green Bay are 13-5 SU in their last 18 games.
Green Bay are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games at home.
Green Bay are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against Chicago.
Chicago are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games.
Chicago are 4-9 SU in their last 13 games.
Chicago are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games against Green Bay.
The Packers were absolutely dominated by the Vikings defense and scored only 7 pooints in the game in one of the worst performances from Aaron Rodgers but the Packers have absolutely dominated the Bears over the past 4 years. The Bears held the 49ers to only 10 points but one big factor was the penalties against San Francisco as the Bears still allowed 340 yards. The Packers have some key players questionable that will keep giving them trouble in defense so I expect the Bears to score 17 to 21 points while Rodgers and the rest of the Packers offense will bounce back at home. Take the over.
PICK: Over 41.5 (-110)
