The Bears opened the season last Sunday with a 19-10 win over the visiting San Francisco 49ers. The Packers lost to the Minnesota Vikings 23-7 on the road.

Sharps Like Packers as Double-Digit Favorites

The Packers opened as 8.5-point favorites and the spread has gone up 1.5 points over the course of the week.

The Packers’ current winning streak against the Bears certainly has something to do with the double-digit spread. So does the disparity in the teams’ records from last season when the Packers won the NFC North with a 13-4 mark and the Bears went 6-9.

In the Super Bowl odds, the Packers are +1500 while the Bears are listed as big longshots at +12500.

Though the line has gone up, the sharps are still hitting the Packers in this one. The disparity in the percentages of the total bets against the handle is a strong indicator of that.

Bears vs Packers Over 41.5 Getting More Betting Action

The total has dropped significantly. It opened at 44.5 points and has fallen to 41.5.

But now that the line has dropped, a total of 65% of the bets as well as 58% of the handle is on the over.

The Bears’ sluggish offense likely played a part in the drop. Though they beat the 49ers, their 204 total yards was the lowest figure in the NFL in Week 1. Justin Fields passed for just 121 yards, though he did throw for two touchdowns.

Perhaps the oddsmakers believe Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is starting to decline. The 38-year-old was held to 195 yards passing and no TDs by the Vikings last week when he completed 22 of 34 attempts.

Yet Rodgers still has +1600 NFL MVP odds, making him the No. 7 choice.

The Packers offensive line is banged up and allowed Rodgers to be sacked four times. Bears edge rusher Robert Quinn took down Rodgers three times in two games last year on his way to an 18.5-sack season.

Bears Getting Bit of Moneyline Love

The Packers are drawing the majority of moneyline action with 59% of the handle and 72% of the total bets.

However, there is just enough disparity in the bets on the Bears to think they are getting some sharp money wagered on them. While 28% of the total bets are on Chicago, it is getting 41% of the handle.

The ML has stayed stable since opening with the Packers at -450 and the Bears at +350.
