Betting Preview for the Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears Regular Season Week 6 Game on October 17, 2021
Where: Soldier Field, Chicago
When: Sunday, October 17, 2021, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Green Bay Packers (-4.5)
Regular Season Record: 4-1
The Packers survived an incredibly weird game in Week 5, scoring a 25-22 win in overtime on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals. Green Bay kicker Mason Crosby missed multiple crucial field-goal attempts but drilled the game-winner, nonetheless. Aaron Rodgers finished with 344 passing yards and two touchdowns with an interception on 27/39 completions. The Packers are dealing with key injuries, but they showed they have the depth to guide them to success. Chicago’s defense should be a threat to the Packers, but Rodgers has historically dominated the Bears. What’s another game to trust him to lead the Packers into another victory over a team he’s regularly victimized? Rodgers is 25-0 straight up in his career against the Bears. In those games, he has completed 66.7 percent of his passes and averaged 240.5 passing yards per game to go with a 6.9 TD% and 1.3 INT%.
The Packers are 3-1 against the spread in their last four road games.
Betting on the Chicago Bears (+4.5)
Regular Season Record: 3-2
Don’t look now but the Bears are on a winning streak. After beating the Detroit Lions at home in Week 4, 24-14, Chicago visited Sin City last Sunday and defeated the Las Vegas Raiders, 20-9. Chicago’s defense carved up Derek Carr for three sacks and an interception. The Bears also held the Bears to only 71 rushing yards on 22 carries. Khalik Mack will look to put immense pressure on Green Bay’s offensive line that did not have three starters in Week 5, which includes David Bakhtiari. The All-Pro left tackle is still on the PUP list, so Rodgers will be missing a crucial piece of Green Bay’s pass protection against a Bears team that entered Week 5 second in the NFL with a 10.71 defensive sack percentage.
The Bears are 3-1 against the spread in their last four home games
The Packers win, 23-21.
