The Chicago Bears have turned to Josh McCown at quarterback, but is it enough to give them a fighting chance against the Green Bay Packers?
The Green Bay Packers shocked the NFL in Week 15 by falling to the middling Kansas City Chiefs and losing their shot at an undefeated season, while the Chicago Bears continued to shock themselves with horrid offensive play while racking up their fourth consecutive loss. Aaron Rodgers and company are eyeing home field advantage and a first-round bye in the playoffs, while the Bears have reached a point of desperation. What do odds makers think about the situation?
For a look at the complete odds, we turn to SB Nation's Odds Page, powered by Odds Shark. The line for the game opened with the Packers favored by 12.5 points, but has moved up to 13 points and 13.5 across two sites. Meanwhile, the over/under for the game opened at 45, but has since dropped down to 43.5. Odds makers may be thinking the Packers will get up early and rest their starters, while McCown and the Bears once again struggle to do anything on offense without Matt Forte and Jay Cutler.
