NFL Thursday: The numbers around betting Packers vs Bears

Robert Mims

I am ready for some football. Tonight, the Packers open the season playing the Bears. I’ll give you the numbers you need to prepare for the game. You should make your selections based on what you think of the information. Sports Betting is just that easy when you are looking at one game. The public complicates things when you look at the entire slate of games being played between Thursday and Monday Night – if you include college that is approximately over 70 games to pick from. I compare it to going to a buffet that has all your favorite food – you want to it all! When you are betting on sports, your win probability decreases when you try to pick them all. The choice is yours. Choose wisely.

Now the numbers for tonight:

Bears are the home team and they are favored by 3.

The over/under total is 46.5.

According to Covers.com, over 56% of the action is on Green Bay plus the 3.

The money line on Scoresandodds.com has the Bears at -170 and the Packers at +148.

Green Bay has won 3 of the last 4 contests. The scores in those games equate to a 2-2 record when comparing them to tonight’s total.

The lean is toward Green Bay. If Packers are playing fast that will neutralize the Bears defensive pressure.

If prop bets are your thing then look at passing yards for Mitchell Trubisky. The o/u is listed at 235.5.

Aaron Rodgers total passing TDs is set at 1.5. If you take him over, you lay -134.

Whatever you decide bet smart! This is just the 1st game.

Follow me on Twitter and I’ll be tweeting tonight during the game. Use the #GTLivechat.
