NFL Odds: Bears-Packers on Thursday Night Football

The NFL’s longest-standing rivalry continues Thursday night (8:25 PM ET, CBS) when the Chicago Bears meet the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. These two teams have played each other 194 times since 1921, and it’s all even at 94-94-6 heading into their latest showdown. However, the Packers have won six of the last seven games, and they’re 7.5-point favorites at press time with a total of 45.5. 

Green Bay (2-1 SU, 1-2 ATS) is one of the better teams in the NFL, and arguably the most popular, but the Packers haven’t covered since Week 1, and they needed overtime to beat the Cincinnati Bengals 27-24 last Sunday as 8-point home favourites. The Packers lost yet another offensive lineman in that game: RT Kyle Murphy (foot) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

The Bears (1-2 SU, 2-1 ATS) got their first win of 2017 last Sunday in another overtime thriller, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-17 as 7.5-point home dogs. But they’re also growing perilously thin on the offensive line; center Hroniss Grasu (hand) left the game early and remains iffy for Thursday, as does RG Josh Sitton (ribs). Safety Quintin Demps is out indefinitely as well with a broken forearm.

NFL Odds: Quarterbacks in Peril for Bears-Packers Matchup

Thursday’s game at Lambeau Field (8:25 PM ET, CBS) between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers could turn into an ugly one for the quarterbacks. Both teams have major questions on the offensive line heading into this battle of ancient rivals.

The 1-2 Bears are 7.5-point underdogs at press time, but if they can get center Hroniss Grasu (hand) and RG Josh Sitton (ribs) healthy in time, they could have the advantage over Green Bay; the 2-1 Packers are running out of tackles after putting RT Kyle Murphy (foot) on injured reserve Tuesday.
