Will the Bears beat Green Bay? Or will the Packers break in the win column? Check out our preview of this Bears vs Packers game in Week 2 of the 2022 NFL regular season.
Betting Preview for the Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers Week 2 Game on September 18, 2022
Where: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wisconsin
When: Sunday, September 18, 2022, 8:20 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NFL Network
Betting on the Chicago Bears (+10)
Regular Season Record: 1-0
Nothing is ever given in the NFL and the Bears proved that again in Week 1 by scoring an upset victory at home over the San Francisco 49ers, 19-10. Granted that Soldier Field was soaking wet, both teams still played in the same poor surface conditions. Chicago’s defense showed up and bottled up Trey Lance, who went just 13/28 for 164 rushing yards and zero touchdowns plus an interception. Justin Field had two touchdown passes and an interception on 8/17 completions but he should be better in Week 2 in Green Bay where the field is better than the one they endured to play on last Sunday. This also seems to be the perfect time for the Bears to beat Aaron Rodgers, whose lack of support on offense couldn’t be any more obvious in Week 1.
The Over is 4-0 in the Bears’ last four games as a road underdog.
Betting on the Green Bay Packers (-10)
Regular Season Record: 0-1
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers got humiliated by the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1, as Green Bay absorbed a 23-7 defeat at the hands of their NFC North rivals on the road. Rodgers went just 22/34 for 195 passing yards and zero touchdowns with an interception. Rodgers is still Rodgers and he can always make something out of nothing, and that could be the case in Week 2 at home against the Bears. Hopefully for the Packers, Allen Lazard will be able to play after missing Week 1 with an injury. He is currently labeled questionable. In any case, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur might increase the roles of running backs Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon after the two only combined for just 15 carries in Week 1. Jones and Dillon form a formidable backfield tandem that might be too much for Chicago if set free by the Packers.
The Packers are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games in Week 2.
The Packers win, 24-21.
