Football bet action on Sunday should be intense as the Green Bay Packers host the Chicago Bears.
It is a critical game for both teams in the NFC North. The Bears are tied with the Vikings for first place while the Packers are one game behind. The Packers are small home favorites in online football betting odds.
Football bet schedule information shows that this is the first meeting between the teams this season. They will also meet next month in Chicago. The Bears have won 6 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams according to football bet statistics. Chicago is 5-4-1 against the online football betting number in those games. Last year the Bears won both games against Green Bay, 35-7 at home and 27-20 at Green Bay. Both of those games also went over the football odds. Home field has not meant much in this series recently. The Bears have won four of the last five games at Green Bay including four straight according to online football betting stats. The games at Green Bay have gone over the football bet number in three of the last five.
A key question in this contest will be the status of Chicago quarterback Kyle Orton. He missed last week’s loss to Tennessee and backup Rex Grossman did not play well. If Orton is out this week then gamblers that make a football bet will definitely be choosing the Packers.
The Bears have been an okay road underdog in recent seasons according to football bet numbers. They are 9-7-1 in that role since 2005 according to online football betting stats. Green Bay has almost identical numbers as a home favorite during that time period according to football bet numbers. They are 10-7-1 laying the football bet odds at home since 2005.
The Bears have been a slight under team on the road the past few seasons going 11-14-3 to the under according to football bet stats. The Packers have been a slight over team during that same time period according to football bet numbers when playing at home.
