NFL Betting Lines
Green Bay Packers -3.5
Chicago Bears +3.5
Total 43.5

After defeating the Chicago Bears in Week 17, it appears as though the Green Bay Packers may have solved the mystery of how to beat their NFC North division rival.

The Packers needed a victory over the Bears to make it into the postseason with a Wild Card berth.

Green Bay had a very specific defensive gameplan – force Bears quarterback Jay Cutler to play under pressure.

The Packers totaled 6 sacks and 8 hits and Cutler had one of the worst games of this NFL betting lines season.

Jay Cutler went 21-for-39 (53.85%) in the game, throwing for just 168 yards, no touchdowns and 2 interceptions – resulting in a horrendous 43.5 passer rating.

In an attempt to repeat his previous success against Chicago’s unstable offense, I expect Dom Capers to change nothing from his Week 17 game plan.

I imagine the Packers’ defensive linemen and linebackers, Clay Matthews (13.5 sacks), Cullen Jenkins (7 sacks), and B.J. Raji (6.5 sacks) will be coming hard for Cutler in this NFL betting lines match.

Due to a stout Green Bay defense and Chicago’s unreliable quarterback, I picture the Pack taking this NFL betting lines game by storm early and putting an end to the Bears’ season.

Brett’s Prediction: Green Bay Packers: 38 Chicago Bears: 10

Nielson Notice: The Chicago Bears are 1-5 when Jay Cutler has a passer rating of less than 82.5.

NFL Betting Lines: Green Bay Packers (-3.5)
