NFL Week 15 Betting: Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears Pick and Prediction

On Sunday, the NFC North will be up for grabs, as the Green Bay Packers head to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears. The Packers come into the game as the divisional leader by a game over the Bears. Green Bay moved to 9-4 with a win over the Detroit Lions last Sunday night. Chicago dropped their fourth game in their last five to Minnesota, and sit a game back of the Packers. Green Bay won the first game between these two teams back in September, at home.

The Chicago Bears have got to figure out a way to snap their losing streak. In the latest loss to Minnesota, quarterback Jay Cutler left early with a neck injury. Cutler is expected to play, but has not been real sharp lately. Chicago’s running game has been limited all season long. Matt Forte leads the attack with with 834 yards on the ground. Brandon Marshall has been a godsend for the Bears offense, as he leads the way with 101 receptions; 9 of them for touchdowns.

The Green Bay Packers are winning games, but doing it ugly. The Packers are coming off a win over the Lions, in which they trailed 14-0 early in the game. Green Bay overall has won 7 of their last 8 since losing a road game at Indianapolis to fall to 2-3. Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb are main threats offensively, as they have a combined 13 touchdown receptions. The Green Bay running game has been better this season; but they still do not run for touchdowns. The Packers have 29 passing touchdowns on the season.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

  • Green Bay Packers -3
  • Chicago Bears +3

Free Prediction and Pick

The Packers with a win would seal the deal in the NFC North. Chicago, with a win would tie the division up with two games to go. The Packers also would pretty much lock up a postseason spot, while the Bears are just a game ahead of the final wildcard spot. Chicago has been banged up, with both Brian Urlacher and Robbie Gould going out for the remainder of the season. Of course, the Packers have injuries as well. We look for Aaron Rodgers to have one of his best games of the season, and Green Bay comes away with a win.

Prediction: Green Bay Packers 31-17

The Packers are a favorite despite being on the road. Green Bay is listed at -3 at Chicago. We like the Packers to cover this spread, and win the game going away. With a loss, the Bears will now have to struggle in their final two games to get into the postseason.

Pick: Green Bay Packers -3

NFL Week 14 Betting: New Orleans Saints @ New York Giants Pick and Prediction

In a battle of two NFC traditional powerhouses, the New Orleans Saints will take on the New York Giants. The Saints are in a do-or-die mode, as they are two games back in the wildcard chase with four to go. New Orleans is 5-7, but have lost their last two games to the 49ers and Falcons. The Giants come in needing a win as well. After losing to the Redskins last week, they found themselves only a game ahead of Washington and Dallas in the NFC East. New York is the defending Super Bowl Champion.

The New York Giants are led by Eli Manning. The Giants have gone how Eli has gone this season. New York settled for three field goals in the Monday Night loss to the Redskins. New York is throwing for nearly 260 yards per game, and have improved on their run game, with over 114 yards per game. Ahmad Bradshaw has over 800 rushing yards, but Andre Brown leads the team with 8 touchdowns. Victor Cruz also has 8 touchdown receptions for New York.

After climbing back to .500, the Saints have dropped two straight games. Last week, New Orleans could not come up with the big score to over take the Falcons. The Saints are passing for just shy of 300 yards per game. Drew Breese has completed 300 passes, for more than 3,600 yards and 36 touchdowns. The Saints run game has struggled this season, with Pierre Thomas rushing for just one touchdown. New Orleans has allowed 30+ points in four of their seven losses this season.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

  • New Orleans Saints +4.5
  • New York Giants -4.5

Free Prediction and Pick

This should be quite a dandy between two teams hungry for a win. Both of these teams can score a bunch of points. The difference between the two is the Giants have been able to stop opponents and the Saints have not. Drew Brees has found himself frustrated several times this season. Look for this to be one of those times, as the Giants force him to turn it over a couple of times. In the end, the Giants win the game.

Prediction: New York Giants 28-21

The line for this game has the Giants as the favorite over the Saints. Home field advantage has a lot to do with that, as does the Giants being Super Bowl Champions – they are not ready to give up their throne yet. A win for New York will take them a long way in getting back to postseason. In the end, the Giants cover the spread of -4.5.

Pick: New York Giants -4.5
