Bet on the NFL This Sunday night at 3:00PM EST the Chicago Bears host the Green Bay Packers in the final battle for the NFC Conference Championship title.
The Chicago Bears are the first in the NFC North with an impressive 11-5 regular season record. The ywon the NFC North this season and hold home-field advantage over Green Bay. But with the way the Packers are playing right now, they might be the scariest No. 6 seed in history. This will be the third time the two teams meet this season.
Sportsbook lists the Packers as the minus 3.5 point favorites with the total over under at 44.
The Packers beat the Atlanta Falcons last weekend in the Divisional Playoffs weekend at 48-21 on the road. They are second in the NFC with a 10-6 record. Comparing the two quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers completed 31 of 36 passes for 366 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions last weekend for the Packers against the Falcons. Jay Cutler, QB for the Bears completed 15 of 28 passes for 274 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also got two scores on the ground. Looking back on the previous two matchups between these two teams this season, if the Bears want a that Division title and a spot in the Super Bowl than Cutler is going to have to look better than he did in their season finale game when the Bears lost 10-3 at Green Bay. He was only 21 of 39 for 168 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. As for the Packers, they finished the regular season at second in scoring and fifth in total defrense with 15 points and 309.1 yards allowed per game. Whereas the Bears stop unit ranks 4th in scoring and 9th in total defense with 17.9 points and 314.3 yards allowed per game. They are both two of the best teams in the NFL this year and will give it everything they’ve got going into Sunday. When betting on the NFL remember that the Packers were dominant in their 48-21 road win in Atlanta winning outright as a two point underdog. The game easily went over the betting total of 43.5. It was the second straight big road win for the Packers in the playoffs after defeating the Eagles in round one. So the fact that they are on the road again this weekend may not be too much of a factor.
