Online betting handicappers will have their choice of two top football betting contenders for the NFC north division title and two historic hated rivals. The Bears and Packers are the oldest online betting rivalry in the NFL as this series dates back to the 1920’s and is legendary for its bitterness.
Both teams are loaded for the 2009 football betting season which only ads to the intensity of the matchup. The Chicago Bears were a super bowl team in 2006 and look primed to return this year as they added quarterback Jay Cutler to ignite their sluggish offense.
Cutler was considered to be the missing piece to the online betting puzzle for the Bears as Chicago already has a championship caliber defense. Cutler improved as the football betting preseason went along as he gradually learned the Bears system and finished with a 92.0 quarterback rating.
Keep in mind that Cutler was the only asset that kept Denver in the online betting post season race to the end of the season last year and he should be a more effective online betting commodity with the support he is surrounded with at Chicago.
After a disappointing 2008 online betting season the Green Bay Packers slogan is that the “Pack is Back!” If preseason is any online betting indication that rallying cry is true as the Packers went 3-1 and looked dominant in most of the exhibition season.
The Packers addressed their special teams and defensive problems from last online betting season by hiring new coordinators and both aspects of their game look to be significantly improved. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers had a phenomenal online betting preseason with an eye-popping 147.9 quarterback rating.
In this head to head online betting series the dog has covered 4 out of the last 5 meetings and the host has covered just 6 out of the last 20 “get togethers”. Green Bay has been a strong September team in recent seasons with a 7-2 mark against the spread.
