Bet on NFC Playoffs: Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears

Two of the biggest rivals in the NFL face off as we get ready to bet on the NFC Playoffs. The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears are well-known NFC foes and this is the rubber match to cap off their three meetings this year.

Saturday, January 23 @ 3pm EST

NFL Odds: Green Bay Packers (-3) vs. Chicago Bears (+3)

Game Total: 43.5

This NFL odds matchup for this NFC Playoffs game between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears couldn’t be any closer on paper. The #2 seed Chicago Bears (12-5 SU) are poised and ready to take on the 6th seeded Green Bay Packers (12-6) at Soldier Field in Chicago. The conditions look like they’re going to be wintery. Chicago took down the first matchup in 2010 by a score of 20-17, while Green Bay took Game 2 by a score of 10-3. For those of you keeping track, that’s two one-score games in a season. These teams genuinely don’t like each other and that atmosphere will be palpable on Saturday.

The winner of this matchup will go on to the Super Bowl to take on the winner of Sunday’s matchup between the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers. Neither team, however, will be looking past this weekend’s matchup.

Green Bay holds the edge is points/game (25.4 to 21.7) as well as the edge in points allowed (15.4 to 18.2). Chicago was a better winner this season – taking the second overall seed in the conference. Green Bay had six losses on the year, but by a combined 20 points. They were involved and had a chance to win every game they played… but perhaps lacked that killer instinct.

This game in the football odds will rely on Chicago’s ability to stop or hinder the exceptional play of Aaron Rodgers (coming off a fantastic performance in Atlanta – one of the toughest places for a road team to win). Chicago was 20th in the league against the pass, surrendering 224.3 yards/game, but were second against the run (only 90 yards/game).

This matchup is crucially tight, but given that Rodgers averaged 257 yards/game and his receivers are getting healthy again, this looks like a real advantage for the road team. Green Bay knows how to play outside, and they’ll be up for their biggest game in recent memory. This is Aaron Rodgers’ chance to cement himself as an elite quarterback against Jay Cutler’s second playoff performance.

Green Bay’s offensive strength lines up nicely against Chicago’s defensive weakness in the football odds, and that should be the edge. Look for a lot of points in this game, regardless of the weather. If you’re going to bet on NFC Playoffs, take the Packers and give up the three points.
