Analysis:
The Chicago Bears will attempt to win back-to-back games for the first time since November of 2015 as they get ready to lock horns with the Green Bay Packers in a NFC North showdown set to be staged Thursday night at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. The Packers, who failed to cover the spread in their last two games, are 7.5-point favorites entering this contest according to Bovada Sportsbook. The Bears have lost seven of their last nine games at Lambeau Field dating back to 2008.

The Bears enter this affair having lost nine in a row on the road while covering the numbers on just two occasions during that stretch. The Bears are 1-10 in their last eleven games away from Soldier Field including last year’s 26-10 loss at Lambeau Field. Of their seven losses in Green Bay dating back to 2008, five of them have come in double-digits. After losing their first two games, the Bears surprised the pundits by beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-17 in Week 3 as a 6.5-point underdog.

Despite quarterback Mike Glennon throwing for just 101 yards, it was the tandem of running backs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen who decimated the Pittsburgh defense for 216 yards including Howard’s winning touchdown in overtime. Howard and Cohen could thrive against a Packer defense that ranks 21st in the league against the run. The Bears’ defense did just enough considering that they were up against one of the best attacks in the NFL. They limited the Steelers to just 315 total yards.

The Packers will have start faster than they did in their past three games if they don’t want to trade punches with the Bears. The good news for the Packers is that the Bears possess one of the worst pass defenses in the league and with Aaron Rodgers firing on all cylinders, he could have a field day on Thursday. For the Bears to have any chance of pulling off the upset is to exploit the Packers’ injury-depleted offensive tackles but as Rodgers has shown last week against the Bengals, he will find a way to elude the pressure.

Bovada has the Packers listed as 7½-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 44½ according to MyBookie.

On the NFL Football Moneyline Odds at BetOnline Packers are the Favorite at -365.

The Bottom Line:
Glennon will hope that his running backs can find the seams while putting less pressure on him to pass the ball against a much improved Packers’ secondary. However, if the Packers can stuff the run and force Glennon to use his arm, the Bears are in big trouble. Take Packers -7½ and the Over 45.
