Monday Night Football Betting Picks – Packers vs Bears

Monday Night Football NFL week 3, features the Green Bay Packers visiting the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field, Chicago, IL. Game time set for 8:30 PM ET, September 27, 2010. Both teams cannot have done better, record-wise in weeks one and two with both squads going 2-0. Will home field for ‘Da Bears’ be enough to stifle the passing attack and line-backing core of Green Bay?

The Green Bay Packers introduced TE Jermichael Finley in a big way to the Buffalo Bills as a Linebacker is too slow and he made Safety’s look short. Finley amassed over 100 yards receiving and looks to continue against the Chicago Bears as they can only boast an average amount of 75 yards given up to opposing Tight-Ends. The Packers have a feisty defense that will put you in quicksand if things start going wrong for your defense. Both squads have not rushed the ball well this season but with Ryan Grant out for the ‘Pack’ they have a valid excuse. With the Bears however having Matt Forte in the backfield they should expect a lot more than the 2.9 average rushing that he is putting up.

Matt Forte has been the top receiver and some have even compared this play to the likes of Marshall Faulk. The quick-hitters and audible’s at the line are working for the number 2 offensively ranked Bears. Jay Cutler continuing to trust the offense and receivers to make the plays when it matters. Both Quarterbacks have big well known names but the numbers go with Cutler on this young season. Can Chicago protect Jay with GB leading the league with 10 sacks and not to mention it being in a Mike Martz system who is known notoriously for giving up QB sacks, though the quick hits can negate this. Below are Packers vs Bears MNF betting picks (which match up with the handicappers picks from the Sports Picks Buffet system) and the betting odds at the time of writing this article.

Packers vs Bears Prediction for Week 3:

Spread Prediction (TOP PLAY) – The Packers won at Philadelphia week one when favored by 3 and the score went under the proposed total. Green Bay has also beaten the Bears both times last year 21-14 and 21-15. So talk about being consistent. I have previewed the Packers this season and feel completely comfortable taking them here with only a field goal to win, mark this one down for me. Chicago is an up-an-comer, but are not of the class that Green Bay possesses, the only spot they have the edge is Running back and only because of injury. PREDICTION PACKERS COVER -3.

Game Total Prediction – When both previous 2009 match ups went under this number by 10 points plus. How could I not take it. With both these teams using the passing game so efficiently it is tough. But with myself being so bang on last week, I have total trust in these defenses to only give up points and quickly shut the door on the next several drives. Green Bay not being favored by a TD is mainly due to the fact of Ryan Grant being out and the emergence of the Chicago Bears. PREDICTION UNDER -46.
