NFL Odds Week 2: Bears Vs. Packers, Chicago Sliding To Underdog Status

The Chicago Bears are currently listed anywhere between a 5-point and 6-point underdog for their matchup against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Thursday night, according to Oddshark.com. The spread opened with the Packers listed as just a 4-point favorite, but since then it has moved even further in Green Bay's favor. The Bears have dropped six of their last seven meetings against the Packers, but this time around they have the offensive weapons to keep pace with Aaron Rodgers and the high-flying Green Bay passing attack.

Oddsmakers expect a shootout, as the over/under opened at 50 points and has since shifted upwards to anywhere between 51 and 52 points. The only other Week 2 game with an over/under at 50 points or higher is the matchup between the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints. This is definitely new territory for Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall and the rest of the Chicago Bears offense.
