We’ve finally made it to the end and the last week of the NFL regular season is upon us.
This week we have the Green Bay Packers on the road to take on the Chicago Bears.
The Packers need this game to lock in the one seed in the NFC and secure a first round bye.
If the Bears win this game, they will make it into the postseason. If they lose, they still have the chance to get in, but they would also need the Arizona Cardinals to lose to make it in.
Both teams have everything on the line and it is one of the greatest rivalries in the NFL.
We have all of your coverage here and we will help you determine your best bets.
Green Bay Packers Betting Preview: Rodgers for MVP
You’re going to hear it all week long after four touchdowns against the Titans in a blizzard.
Aaron Rodgers and this Packers’ offense is on fire, and at this rate it seems like nobody can stop them.
Patrick Mahomes looked like he was going to walk away with another MVP without any trouble, but now Rodgers has soared to take the lead.
Going against the Bears, he should be poised to have another big game and keep his strong connection going with Davante Adams.
Adams has been the best receiver in the league, and with the Bears having an average secondary it should be another game for him to feast on the outside.
Chicago Bears Betting Preview: Three Seasons in One
Fans of the Bears have ridden the roller coaster all season long with this team.
Going between Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles was like trying to decide between the lesser of two evils, and luckily injuries wound up making the decision for them.
Their first six games of the season found themselves atop the NFC at 5-1, then they dropped their next six games to sit at 5-7.
All hope seemed lost until they won their last three. And now, all they have to do is beat Green Bay to secure the final wildcard spot.
Trying to guess how Trubisky will play is like taking a chance in playing slot machines.
Ever since Matt Nagy gave up play calling, David Montgomery has looked like the best running back in the league.
If they have any chance of winning, Montgomery will have to continue his newfound success against this porous rushing defense.
