The day has finally come, and it’s one of the biggest in recent memory for the Chicago Bears franchise. With playoffs on the line, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers stand in their way, a scene that has been played out several times before.

With Rodgers having another MVP caliber season and his team showcasing a historic offense, and the Bears playing their best football in the Matt Nagy era, Sunday afternoon’s game is going to be must-see TV.

Why not make it more interesting by putting some money on the line with PointsBet?

Four Best Bets For Bears vs. Packers 

Over/Under 48.5 Total Points 

The last time these two teams met, the Packers ran all over the Bears and put up 40 points. Since then, their offense has continued to play very well.

The Bears offense has discovered a running game, and because of that Sunday’s game will showcase two, top-five rushers in the NFL: David Montgomery and Aaron Jones.

I love the over here because Rodgers tends to play some of his best football against the Bears. The Bears are fighting for their playoff lives, and Trubisky has shown that he can find the end zone consistently. I will take the over here with little hesitation.

Aaron Rodgers Under 285.5 Yards Passing 

Normally, I would smash the over here. However, the Bears will have a healthy Akiem Hicks this time around, and the Packers lost their best offensive lineman, perhaps the best in all of football, David Bakhtiari to a torn ACL in practice last week.

Rodgers is going to have success throwing the ball. He always does. But because the Bears pass rush will be a bigger factor than it was in November, I will take the under on his passing prop.

David Montgomery Over 79.5 Yards Rushing 

The Bears are going to rely on Montgomery to win this game. I would bet he touches the ball almost 25 times Sunday afternoon. The Packers’ run defense has figured things out, thanks to significant contributions from Preston Smith and Adrian Amos.

No one knows what Mitch Trubisky will show up Sunday, but the way Montgomery has played suggests he will have to carry the offense to a win. I will take the over here.

Mitch Trubisky To Rush For Over 14.5 Yards 

Trubisky has to have one of the best games of his career to win Sunday afternoon. He knows the poor decisions that he made back in November, throwing into triple coverage twice. Chances are, Trubisky will run the ball a few times instead of forcing throws.

He knows how big of a game this is, so I expect him to do what he’s comfortable with.
