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.

  • 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 15 Betting: New York Giants @ Atlanta Falcons Pick and Prediction

Two contenders out of the NFC will square off on Sunday in Atlanta. The defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants are 8-5 and lead the NFC East by a single game over the Cowboys and Redskins. New York is coming off a huge win last week over New Orleans. The Giants are currently the fourth seed in the NFC. The Falcons are coming off just their second loss of the season; to Carolina. Atlanta has wrapped up the NFC South, and are now looking to lock up home field throughout the entire postseason.

The Atlanta Falcons started as one of the hottest teams in all of the NFL. After a loss to the Saints a few weeks ago, followed by some close games, and then a loss at Carolina, many throughout the league are wondering. Matt Ryan continues to be a top threat behind center for Atlanta. The quarterback has thrown for just shy of 4,000 yards on the season. Running back Michael Turner and the wide receiver core of Julio Jones and Roddy White make the Falcons a tough crew to stop. Atlanta is passing for 289.2 yards per game as a team.

For the Giants, this season is much like a season ago, when they got hot at the right time. For Tom Coughlin, he hopes the winning started last week. The Giants poured in 52 points against the Saints to keep their divisional lead. New York has seen Andre Brown rush for 8 touchdowns on the season, while Victor Cruz leads the receiving core with 9. The Giants rank 9th in the league with nearly 260 yards passing per game. New York has a trip to Baltimore and a home game with the Eagles remaining, so a win here is needed.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

  • New York Giants +1
  • Atlanta Falcons -1

Free Prediction and Pick

The Falcons and Giants are both going to come into this game very hungry. For New York, they are looking to get their confidence level back up to where they were a season ago, when they won all the way into February. For Atlanta, after their loss to Carolina, there has been some doubt put into their minds. We look for both teams to play well, but in the end, the Atlanta offense has a tough time getting into the end zone on the Giants defense, and Eli Manning has a great day. New York wins.

Prediction: New York Giants 27-20

The Giants come into this game as a slight underdog on the road. Atlanta is not an easy place to play, but the Falcons have shown some vulnerability there the last several times. Look for New York to try running the ball early, so Manning has some room to throw the ball late in the game. We like the New York Giants to not only cover the +1, but also win this game on the road.

Pick: New York Giants +1
