Betting Preview for the Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers Regular Season Week 14 Game on December 12, 2021
Where: Lambeau Field, Green Bay
When: Sunday, December 12, 2021, 8:20 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NBC
Betting on the Chicago Bears (+12.5)
Regular Season Record: 4-8
Andy Dalton and the Bears got blown up by the Arizona Cardinals in a 33-22 home loss in Week 13. Dalton struggled mightily in the pocket in that game, as he was intercepted four times and sacked three times for a loss of 12 yards. It’s uncertain whether the Bears will revert back to Justin Fields as the starting quarterback in the rematch against Green Bay, so that’s something that needs to be monitored as Sunday nears. Fields has not played in a while due to a rib injury and has not been ruled out of Week 14, as of this writing. When Chicago lost 24-14 to the Packers in Week 6 at home, the Bears didn’t have the then-injured running back David Montgomery. Well, Montgomery is now back in the lineup and healthy, as evidenced by his solid performance in the Arizona game in which he rushed 21 times for 90 yards and a touchdown and also caught eight of nine targets for 51 receiving yards.
The Bears are 5-0 against the spread in their last five Week 14 games.
Betting on the Green Bay Packers (-12.5)
Regular Season Record: 9-3
Before taking a well-deserved rest in a Week 13 bye, the Packers made sure they leave a strong message for the rest of the NFL with a 36-28 home win over the Los Angeles Rams. Aaron Rodgers passed for 307 yards and two touchdowns and zero interceptions on 28/45 completions. Rodgers remains arguably the best quarterback in the NFL, but credits should also be given to his protection unit that allowed just a sack in the face of the Rams’ pass rush led by Von Miller and Aaron Donald. Speaking of which, Rodgers was sacked three times for a loss of 26 yards in the first meeting with Chicago this season, but the Bears’ defense is currently missing Khalil Mack and Akiem Hicks, who each had a sack in Week 6 against the Packers. Rodgers’ eyes should light up once he sees the Bears’ defense that is without Mack and Hicks and had just allowed a total of four touchdowns to the Cardinals in Week 13.
The Packers are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games at home.
The Packers win, 27-17.
