NFL Betting Lines - Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers
Bears vs Packers Sunday afternoon two NFC North rivals Chicago and Green Bay face-off at Lambeau Field with first place in the division in the line. Odds makers are calling the Packers slight home favorites as the Bears come to town. NFL betting lines have the Packers at -3.5 with the total sitting at 44.
At 5-4 the Bears have a leg up on the Pack and look to increase their slight lead when the teams meet for the 175th time. Chicago is tied atop the North with Minnesota, while Green Bay, at 4-5, is one game back.
"It's all about Chicago for us right now," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "Everybody knows what the standings are and everybody knows everybody else's record, so there is a lot of football left. We've got to keep working to get better."
The Packers have struggled as of late having lost their second straight last week in a 28-27 heartbreaker to the Vikings. Green Bay started 2-0 to open the season but have lost five of their last seven.
"This is what you play for: To play Green Bay, to play your division rivals in November," Chicago quarterback Kyle Orton said. "We're in first place, and these are huge games from here on out. This is what I put the effort in for, so I can do everything I can to be out there."
Orton missed last week's loss to Tennessee with an ankle injury but expects to play against the Packers. The Chicago signal caller is the Bears heart and soul. With Orton in the line-up Chicago is a different team. He has graduated from a guy that would do his best to just manage games to a leader with the confidence to go out and win them.
"I can't wait for the day when Kyle says he is ready," said Bears coach Lovie Smith.
Kyle Orton will play Sunday and the Bears will win their fifth straight at Lambeau. Take Chicago getting the 3.5 point.
