NFL betting fans will have their choice of two 2-0 teams that are tied for the lead in the NFC North race that looks to be wide open due to the NFL gambling struggles of Minnesota.
Sports-Gambling opened with Green Bay as a 3-point road favorite and with a total of 46. Kickoff Monday is at 8:40 PM Eastern.
Green Bay beat the pro football betting lines last week in a 34-7 blowout over the Buffalo Bills as 12.5-point home favorites. The Pack has covered both of their games this year and both matchups went under the total.
The Green Bay defense has been impressive on balance ranking 4th overall for total yards and 8th for points permitted but does rank a suspect 28th in the NFL against the rush. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been lights out with a 94 QB Rating. The loss of starting running back Ryan Grant remains a long term concern.
The Chicago Bears scored an impressive 27-20 upset win over the Dallas Cowboys as 7-point road dogs with the pro football betting odds last week for their first payout this season as the game went over the total.
Quarterback Jay Cutler looks much improved under new offensive coordinator Mike Martz with a phenomenal QB rating of 121.2 and a 5/1 TD/INT ratio with a 69% completion ratio and 649 yards. Chicago ranks just 28th for rushing offense, however.
Green Bay has covered their last 4 NFL betting matchups with Chicago with all 4 games going under the total. The Packers have gotten the money in 12 out of their last 16 trips to Soldier Field with 4 of the last 5 games at Chicago going under the total.
Green Bay has paid out in 5 out of their last 6 road games and in 6 of their last 7 games as a favorite. The Pack has gone over the total in 5 out of their last 7 games as a chalk. Chicago has gotten the money in 1 out of their last 6 home games and just 3 out of their last 14 games as a dog.
The Bears have gone under the total in 8 out of their last 10 games as a pup.
