Bears vs Packers Prediction:
The Packers dominated last year as the betting results show. They covered almost everything and the Bears did not. While I do not expect them to do as well as last year the Packers will be able to score. The Bears on the other hand should have an improved offense and that will be good enough to cover the over in this game.
