The 0-1 Green Bay Packers will host the 1-0 Chicago Bears at Lambeau Filed this Thursday September 13th, 2012 for their week 2 divisional matchup.
This game can be wagered now at BetOnline Sportsbook and the home Packers are 5 point favorites with a total of 49.5 for this one.
As we accurately predicted, Green Bay was defeated at home by San Francisco last week, on a game that showed us that the mighty Packers have their weaknesses and can become one dimensional on offense. In come the Bears who gave Andrew Luck a warm welcome, eating the Colts 41-21.
The Bears are totally a different team this year. They showed us why the reunited Brandon Marshall with Jay Cutler by connecting nine times for 119 yards and a TD and this success should continue all year long if both are able to stay healthy. Matt Forte is simply a beast, a complete back and arguably the best in the game today, but above all they seem to be having fun this year without having to deal with Mike Martz´s offense.
Despite the fact they brought Cedric Benson in, the Packers had problems running the ball, to the point that their quarterback led the team in rushing yards on week one. They gave Benson a total of 9 carries, and to be honest we don’t like the fact that they are not willing to balance their offense more. Chicago is another high powered defense that will come to town, with an offense that looks revitalized and this should be a high scoring affair. Bet the over 49.5 at BetOnline.
