Packers Can Clinch the NFC North
Good morning, #Packers fans: If the Vikings lose to the Steelers at home on Thursday, Green Bay can clinch the division with a win against the Bears at Lambeau this Sunday! #GoPackGo pic.twitter.com/spmb9p0mqQ

If the Pittsburgh Steelers upset the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, then the Green Bay Packers can clinch the NFC North Division title with a win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Minnesota became the first team this season to lose to the Detroit Lions, doing so last weekend. The Vikings could also be without Adam Thielen after he suffered a high-ankle sprain during last week’s loss. Minnesota is also just 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games as betting favorites, and 0-6 ATS in their last six games at home.
Meanwhile, Green Bay had their bye week in Week 13 and they will host the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field. Chicago lost to the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday with veteran Andy Dalton playing behind center with Justin Fields still injured. Dalton threw four interceptions in the game and regardless of who starts for Chicago, winning or even covering the spread could be a huge challenge.
The Packers are the best ATS team in the NFL this season at 10-2 ATS or an 83.3% cover. Green Bay is also 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games played and 5-0 ATS in their last five games played at Lambeau Field. The Packers already beat the Bears 24-14 in Week 6 in a game where Aaron Rodgers famously said “I still own you.” He’ll probably say that again on Sunday.
Giants May Be Without Daniel Jones and Mike Glennon
Giants QB Daniel Jones is ‘likely’ out next week, per sources, and may be evaluated by a specialist.
So with Mike Glennon’s concussion, Jake Fromm’s going to be preparing for his first NFL start this week.

The Chargers opened as 7.5 point favorites against the Giants but with both starter Daniel Jones and back-up Mike Glennon likely out due to injuries, New York may be forced to give Jake Fromm his first NFL start at SoFi Stadium. The Chargers closed last week’s game against the Bengals with a 17-0 run to improve to 7-5 SU on the season. One concern however is that Los Angeles is just 1-5 ATS in their last six games as betting favorite.
Tennessee had its bye week in Week 13 and Mike Vrabel’s team lost two in a row to the Texans and Patriots after winning six straight games. The Jaguars may be the perfect opponent to bounce back and return to the winning column. Jacksonville scored just seven points and was shut out in the second half in a blowout loss to the Rams. The Jaguars are just 4-8 ATS on the season while the Titans are 4-0-1 ATS in their last five games after a bye week.
Two other home favorites are favored by more than a touchdown but less than double-digits. These are the Kansas City Chiefs who a -9.5 favorite against the Las Vegas Raiders and Denver Broncos who are -8 point favorites against the Detroit Lions. Only one road team is favored by more than a touchdown in Week 14 and that is the Seattle Seahawks who are a -8 versus the Houston Texans.
