The Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears will be facing off for the first of two meetings this season on Sunday, September 10. This game will kick off at 3:25 p.m. CT on FOX. Green Bay has won its last eight meetings against Chicago. The Packers are looking to make it nine straight wins, and the Bears are looking to end its losing streak against them.
It will be interesting to see how this one plays out. This feels like a football game that is a coin flip, and that can go either way. Some USA Today Writer’s gave their inputs on the predictions for this matchup between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears.
Three of four writers took Green Bay to beat the Bears, but will see what some of the reasoning is.
Lorenzo Reyes predicts that Green Bay will beat the Bears 24-20. His reasoning was:
“This is essentially a toss up and, while I think Chicago will be better this season, I need to see some evidence before backing them against a team that has controlled the division-despite its transition. I expect Matt LaFleur to put Jordan Love in position to make plays.
Tyler Dragon predicts that the Bears will beat the Packers 23-20. His reasoning was:
“Let the Jordan Love era begin. Word out of Green Bay is Love is ready to take the reins. The Bears are determined to show the Packers they are no longer their little brother in the NFC North in front of the Solider Field Crowd.
Packers vs. Bears Betting Odds and Betting Prediction
(Odds Via BET MGM)
The Green Bay Packers will continue its winning streak on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Green Bay, even with a changing of the guard against Chicago, will find a way to come out on top. Jordan Love will play better than people think he will, and Justin Fields will struggle against a solid Packers defense also.
Love could be without his top two receivers, Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs, due to injury, but rookies Jayden Reed and Malik Heath will be ready to step up. Chicago doesn’t have much of a pass rush.
The Bears’ defense was horrid a season ago, and it will struggle coming out of the gates. The Green Bay Packers will have a running game of Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon and keep the Chicago Bears offense on the sidelines. Green Bay is going to win this football game over Chicago by a final score of 23-14.
