Packers Win Big
The Chicago Bears are not a very good football team. Sure, they beat the Pittsburgh Steelers last week, but they are not going to win many games. They certainly are not going to go on the road and beat Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. The Bears are in big trouble in this game. Look for them to stay in single digits in points.
The Green Bay Packers are due for a breakout. Ty Montgomery really has not got things going thus gar in 2017. Look for him to get things going, and the passing game do what they want with all of Aaron Rodgers weapons. The final bet for this game is the Green Bay Packers -7.5 over the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football.
