Packers vs Bears 1/3/21 Betting Prediction
The Green Bay Packers are 12-3 and already in the playoffs but they suffered one major blow to all their hopes for the postseason. All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari got injured on Thursday and he will miss the rest of the season. This will limit the protection QB Aaron Rodgers is getting and he will again be asked to make miracle plays. Speaking of Rodgers, he is completing 70.3% of his throws for 4059 yards, 44 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions.
The Chicago Bears are 8-7 but they really have just 1 win over a playoff contender. That win came against the Buccaneers in week 5 but the other victories were against the likes of Lions, Giants, Falcons, etc. QB Mitch Trubisky is coming off a victory against the Jaguars where he threw for 265 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception. RB David Montgomery will be a key piece against the Packers as he is the team’s leading rusher and he is the tiebreaker for this team’s success.
The Packers have won 12 of their last 15 meetings against the Bears and in recent history, the only time they lost against them was when Chicago actually made the playoffs. This time around, however, there are just way too many question marks for the Bears and they haven’t played well this whole season. It is only natural for Green Bay to win this one.
