Chicago vs. Green Bay,
09/13/2012 20:20 EDT,
Score: 10 - 23
Point Spread: -5/-105 Green Bay
Today's winner is Green Bay over Chicago. This is my Thursday Night Winner.
Green Bay has won 4 in a row SU, covering the L3 against Chicago. In the two contests LY, the Packers outscored the Bears by a combined 62-38. Green Bay opened their season with a 30-22 loss against a strong San Francisco squad while Chicago flattened a less than stellar Indianapolis team, 41-21. The Packers (15-1 LY in regular season) can not afford to start this year's campaign at 0-2 while their Division rival Bears jump to a 2-0 record. Green Bay got out-coached LW and that will not happen in this matchup. Chicago's passing game faced a very soft Indy defense. This contest will show that CB, Tramon Williams will slow down WR, Brandon Marshall and Safety, Charles Woodson is around to help out as well. This game will be won in the trenches where GB has the edge on both sides of the ball. As far as the QB position goes, Packer play-caller, Aaron Rodgers was 30-for-44, 303 YP, 2 TDs, and 1 INT vs. a solid SF stop unit. Bears CB, Charles Tillman is listed as questionable here with a lower leg injury. The Bears are 2-7 ATS their L9 games played vs. the Packers and 1-3-1 ATS their L5 games played on Thursday. The Packers are 9-0 ATS their L9 games played following an ATS loss and 12-4 ATS their L16 games played at home. Take Green Bay. Thank you.
