Chicago Bears vs.
Green Bay Packers: Line and point spread
time for Monday night football and time to look at the point
spread and line on the Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers game.
For the Week 9 NFL closer, Monday night football will see the
Chicago Bears (4-3) traverse the short distance north to face
the Green Bay Packers (5-2) in what is a very open NFC North
division. And while the Vikings are out of the chase, the
Packers and the Bears, along with the #2 ranked Lions (5-3), are
still very much in the race for playoff spots. As you can see
from the records of the Bears and Packers, as well as the
overall NFC North Standings, we couldn't have asked for a better
Monday night football game. But before we go any further with
the stats, let's get to the meat and potatoes, the money line
and the point spread on the Bears - Packers game.
Looking at the line and spread at the two
most popular sportsbooks online -
Bovada Sports and
Bookmaker, we find the Green
Bay Packers a big favorite to win the game and retain the top

Looking at the betting stats (line and
spread), we find that Chicago is 1-4 against the spread in its
last 5 games when playing on the road against the Packers and
Green Bay has won all of their last five games at home, while
losing just one of their last 7 games. The Packers are 5-0
straight up beating the line in their last 5 games when playing
at home against the Chicago Bears and keep in mind that the
total has gone UNDER in 4 of Chicago's last 5 games when playing
on the road against the Packers.
Injuries is the weak side of the Bears in
Week 9 with starting quarterback Jay Cutler out for the game
against the Packers with groin injury, which explains the huge
underdog line on the Bears, as well as the point spread. Bears'
linebacker Lance Briggs is also out for Week 9, while wide
receiver Joe Anderson remains questionable for tonight's game.
The rest of the Bears' injuries have been upgraded to probable
for the Monday night football game. The Green Bay Packers will
be playing without tight end Jermichael Finley, linebackers Clay
Matthews and Nick Perry, while wide receiver James Jones is
still listed as questionable, nursing a knee injury.
