Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears: Point spread

 The NFL Week 16 will close with the Monday night football game Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago bears and we will take a look at the point spread and odds on this NFC North battle. Thanks to the Falcons, who beat the Vikings last night, the playoff dream is still alive for the Chicago Bears (8-6), who sit a game behind Minnesota, but a win is a must tonight against the Green Bay Packers (5-9), a team the Bears failed to overcome early into this season losing 37-3 to the Packers at home in September. Meanwhile the last week's loss against the Jaguars had eliminated the Green Bay Packers from playoff contest.

 Considering what's riding on the Monday night football game, the online sportsbook Bookmaker had made the Bears the favorite to win the game with odds -215, while the Packers are underdog with odds +185. And the Green Bay packers vs. Chicago Bears point spread is currently at -4.5 points chalk the Bears with the total at 40 points. But the majority of the bettors seem to believe that the Packers won't go quietly and without a fight - according to Bookmaker, there is a heavy action on the Packers to cover the spread and even win the game outright. Keep in mind, however, that Green Bay is 1-4 against the spread in its last 5 games, although Chicago is 2-7 against the spread in its last 9 games when playing at home against the Green Bay Packers. The betting trends also show that the total has gone OVER in 13 of Green Bay's last 19 games when playing on the road against Chicago.

 As far as injuries go before this Monday night football game, at Green Bay defensive tackle Justin Harrell is out for the Packers vs. Bears game tonight, while running backs Korey Hall and Brandon Jackson remain questionable for the game against Chicago. Packers' cornerbacks Al Harris and Charles Woodson, along with tight end Tory Humphrey were all upgraded to probable. For the Bears only running back Jason McKie was listed as out for NFL Week 16 football, but wide receiver Marty Booker and running back Matt Fort are still questionable for the Packers Bears game.
