Monday Night Football: Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears betting odds at SBGglobal.com have the Bears listed as a -4 home favorite.
Packers Breakdown: Green Bay, at the mid-point of the season, was still in contention for the NFC North crown. Those days are long gone as the Packers are now just playing out the string. Green Bay lost 16-20 last weekend at Jacksonville to extend their current losing streak to four games. Mike McCarthy's club has now lost six of its last seven games.
The Pack are 2-5 away from Lambeau Field; their defense has allowed 27.1 points per game on the road this year.
Bears Breakdown: At 8-6, Chicago is a half game back of the Vikings in the NFC North heading into tonight's game with Green Bay. However, a Bears win this evening would tie things up and make next weekend more than crucial for both Chicago and Minnesota. Lovie Smith would have to feel pretty good about his team's chances as they head to Houston next weekend and the Vikings face the Giants at the Metrodome.
The Bears are 5-2 at Soldier Field and averaging 26.7 points per game in the Windy City.
