NFL Picks – Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears

The Packers finally lost last week. They looked pretty bad against a Chiefs defense that has been a lot better than people realize all year long. Now, the Packers are 13-point home favorites against a Chicago team that has absolutely been reeling. This looks like a good spot for Green Bay to take out some frustration and really lay into the Bears. But there are some questions that you need to answer if you are going to make your NFL picks on the Packers this weekend. 

The first of those questions has everything to do with motivation. Do the Packers rest players? Will they put out their best effort? A highly motivated Green Bay team could beat this Chicago team by a ton of points. But if they come out and lay an egg, they likely won’t cover this number. It all comes down to how much you trust the Packers to put on a good show. I tend to think that the Green Bay defense will control things and that the Packers offense won’t have to score that much in order to run away with this game.
