Trends to know: This is the largest underdog spread of Aaron Rodgers’ career against an NFC North rival. Rodgers has never beaten a division team as an underdog going 0-6-1 straight up and 3-4 against the spread, according to our Bet Labs data. — John Ewing
Rodgers has faced the Bears 21 times in his career, and he is 15-6 ATS (71.4%), making Chicago his most profitable opponent for bettors, netting 8.5 units. This will be just the second time that Rodgers faces Chicago as an underdog, losing in Chicago 20-17 as a four-point underdog in 2008.
