As I expected, the oddsmakers have the Green Bay Packers favored by three points over the Bears for Monday Night’s game. Considering that the home team normally gets three for being at home, they actually think the Packers should be favored by 6.
It’s going to be a long week of thinking about the upcoming matchup. Initially I just have to say, let’s remember that while the Bears lost 2 to the Packers in 2009, they were both very close games. And which team improved more in the offseason? I don’t recall the Packers making many major moves other than drafting Bryan Bulaga. They also lost their top running back and second cornerback.
