- Green Bay Packers Analysis
The Packers are coming off a disappointing 2018 campaign. Packers Vs Bears this week will be used as a measuring stick. The season in which the Packers finished with 6-9-1 record. Also, missed the playoffs for a second consecutive season. Does Aaron Rodgers have another season in him? Packers fans seem to think so. The disappointing season led to the team firing head coach Mike McCarthy and replacing him with Matt LaFleur.
With LaFleur leading the team, they will try to move away from their dependence on Aaron Rodgers to bail the team out and embrace a more balanced offense. Running back Aaron Jones, who rushed for 728 yards and eight touchdowns while averaging an impressive 5.5 yards per carry, is expected to be more involved in the offense this year. Can Jones be the difference?
Packers Vs Bears Betting Odds
Green Bay’s biggest question mark going into the season is their defense, which struggled last season. They added some talented young players in the draft and will need them to step up if they are to make the playoffs this year.
- Chicago Bears Analysis
The Bears will enter the season as one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl this season based on their performance last year. The team will once again rely on its defense to lead the way with players like Khalil Mack leading the way.
Quarterback Mitch Trubisky is also expected to have a big season after throwing for 3,223 yards and 24 touchdowns last year. One of the biggest concerns for the Bears going into the season is their kicker position, which is still unresolved. They are hoping that Eddy Pineiro, who won the job in the preseason, will provide stability at the position. This has impacted Packers vs Bears wagering odds.
