Packers open as 4.5-point road favorites over Bears in Week 6

By Zach Kruse

For the second straight week and the third time in six weeks, the Green Bay Packers are betting favorites on the road.

According to Tipico Sportsbook, the Packers are 4.5-point favorites over the Chicago Bears in Week 6.

The Packers, now 4-1 after five weeks, were previously road favorites against the New Orleans Saints in Week 1 (loss) and Cincinnati Bengals in Week 5 (win).

The Bears have won two straight games (vs. Lions, at Raiders) after starting 1-2. This week is the first time Matt Nagy’s team will be a home underdog this season.

The Packers beat the Bears twice last season, including a 35-16 win at Soldier Field on Jan. 3. Green Bay is 2-0 in Chicago and 4-0 overall since hiring Matt LaFleur in 2019.

Overall, the Packers have won nine of the last 10 games in the rivalry. Since 2011, the Packers are 19-3 against the Bears.

Rookie quarterback Justin Fields will make his first career start against the Packers. Can he start a new chapter in this one-sided matchup, or will the Packers continue their dominance?
