Green Bay Packers (12-6) @ Chicago Bears (13-4)

Time: 3:00 pm EST

Point Spread: Green Bay Packers -3.5

Over/Under Line: 43

Preview: The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears will get together for the third time this season. This time, it will matter the most. On the line is a trip to Dallas to compete in the Super Bowl. The Packers and Bears split the season series, with both teams winning at home. Chicago won the NFC North with a 12-4 record, while the Packers picked up the final postseason spot at 10-6 on the season.

Green Bay has scored 69 points in 2 postseason games thus far. After beating Philadelphia on the road in week one, the Packers went to Atlanta on Saturday and absolutely blasted the top seeded Falcons. Green Bay saw quarterback Aaron Rodgers throw for 366 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Packers defense held the Atlanta offense to just 150 passing yards, and forced them to turn the ball over four times. Green Bay had the highest point differential in the National Football League during the regular season. The Packers scored 388 points and allowed just 240.

Chicago saw a great turnaround from quarterback Jay Cutler. After leading the league in interceptions last season, Cutler has come back and dominated the league with over 3200 yards and 23 touchdown passes on the season. Chicago’s defense was once again sensational; holding teams to just 90 rushing yards per game. In the postseason, Chicago received a first round bye – followed by a big win over Seattle at home. The Bears outscored opponents 334 – 286 during the regular season.

My NFL Betting Picks: In what will be a historic game for these Midwestern teams, the Green Bay Packers appear to be confident enough to go on the road and pick up the win. Green Bay wins this one 24-20.
