The Green Bay Packers (8-4) head to the windy city to take on the Chicago Bears (5-7). The Packers will look to make it five straight wins, and remain in a NFC wildcard spot with a win against their divisional rivals. The Packers defense has been the story over their winning streak, giving up an average of 67.3 rushing yards in the last four games. The Packers defense leads the league in total defense allowing an average of only 273.5 yards per game. Green Bay will look to sweep the season series against the Bears for the first time since 2003 on Sunday. The Bears have lost six of their last eight games and are letting the playoffs slip away for the third straight season. Things could be real bad for the Bears on Sunday as they could be without Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs, and star receiver Devin Hester. Betting lines, trends and predictions are listed below for this Green Bay vs Chicago week 14 match up.

Green Bay vs Chicago Betting Predictions:
Final Score – Packers 27 @ Bears 10
Spread – Lay it down on the Packers to cover the spread this week. Green Bay’s defense is on fire right now, the secondary has looked liked the best in the league, and on offense the O-line has done an excellent job giving Rodgers time to make big plays down the field. Another edge for Green Bay in this one will be turnovers. Cutler had thrown a league leading 20 interceptions this year, and Green Bay’s defense has 21 interceptions, second most in the league. Green Bay needs a big win here to stay in the playoff picture. I believe the defense will keep Cutler and the Bears offense off the field, giving Rodgers the ball to put up some big numbers. Bet on the Green Bay Packers to cover the 3 point spread this week (-110).

Over/Under – I like the total to stay under the 41 points. Chicago has struggled to put points on the board and lately Green Bay has done a great job keeping them off. Look for the Packers defense to own the Bears offense, forcing them to punt a lot keeping this one under the number. The Bears also struggle to get touchdowns when they get to the red zone, look for the Bears to put up more field goals then touchdowns. Bet on the under in this game (-110).
