Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers: Bettors, Oddsmakers Expecting Packers Win
If the Chicago Bears are going to make a play for the NFC North title, there’s no better time than in Week 12 as they travel to Green Bay to take on the division leading Packers.
Nick Foles is apparently still nursing a hip injury he sustained in Week 10, so we’ll see the return of former first round pick Mitch Trubisky under center for the Bears. For the Packers, they’ll be looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss against the Colts where they wasted a late lead.
