The Chicago Bears got off to a hot start this season, but that seems like a long time ago, as they are now dealing with a free fall. Up next for the Bears is a meeting with the Green Bay Packers, who are also fresh off a setback. Which team will recover this week with a win?
Betting Preview for the Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers Regular Season Week 12 Game on November 29, 2020
Where: Lambeau Field, Green Bay
When: Sunday, November 29, 2020, 8:20 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NBC
Betting on the Chicago Bears (+8.5)
Regular Season Record: 5-5
The Bears are coming off a bye, which they obviously needed to get their acts together, as they are on a four-game losing skid following a 19-13 home loss to the Minnesota Vikings at home in Week 10. However, the Bears are still on the fence with regards to which quarterback they’ll start against the Packers. On one hand, they have Nick Foles, who was their starter in all of their last four losses. On the other hand, there’s Mitchell Trubisky, who’s hard to trust. That being said, it’s been widely reported that Trubisky is likely to start against Green Bay, which would be his first start since Week 3. Whoever quarterback the Bears start, their ground game has to produce. A good news on that front for the Bears is the looming return of running back David Montgomery, who’s cleared the concussion protocol after missing the Vikings game. And then there’s always the Bears’ defense that is currently sixth in the NFL with 20.9 points allowed per game.
The under is 3-0 in the Bears’ last three games on the road.
Betting on the Green Bay Packers (-8.5)
Regular Season Record: 7-3
The Packers got tripped up by the Indianapolis Colts in Week 11, as they lost to Philip Rivers and company on the road via overtime, 34-31. Aaron Rodgers still managed to put up a solid performance, passing for 311 yards and three touchdowns with an interception on 27-of-38 completions. The Bears present a huge challenge for the Packers’ attack, but Chicago could be missing a key piece of their pass defense, with safety Eddie Jackson on the reserve/COVID-19 list. What the Packers need is to cut down on turnovers after committing three in the loss to Indianapolis. That’s Rodgers’ interception and three lost fumbles. That’s a bit out of character, though, as the Packers are third in the NFL with just 0.3 giveaways per game.
The Packers, who are scoring 30.8 points per game, are 4-2 against the spread in their last six home games.
The Packers win, 26-24.
