Green Bay (2-1 SU, 1-2 ATS) is one of the better teams in the NFL, and arguably the most popular according to Bovada handicappers , but the Packers haven’t covered since Week 1, and they needed overtime to beat the Cincinnati Bengals 27-24 last Sunday as 8-point home favorites. The Packers lost yet another offensive lineman in that game: RT Kyle Murphy (foot) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
The Bears (1-2 SU, 2-1 ATS) got their first win of 2017 last Sunday in another overtime thriller, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-17 as 7.5-point home dogs. But they’re also growing perilously thin on the offensive line; center Hroniss Grasu (hand) left the game early and remains iffy for Thursday, as does RG Josh Sitton (ribs). Safety Quintin Demps is out indefinitely as well with a broken forearm.
