Betting market: Following their big win against the Rams, close to 60% of the public is taking the Bears. But 56% of the money is on the Packers, and it looks like sharp bettors grabbed the Packers +6.5 at the few spots where it was available (click here for updated odds).

The under is getting overwhelming support with 90% of the money so far, causing the total to drop from 46.5 to 45. — Mark Gallant

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.
