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.

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.
