The Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears have been playing one another since 1921. Believe it or not, their series stands at 93-93-6.
It’s tied because the Packers have dominated lately. Green Bay is 9-1 SU and 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games against Chicago. The only Packers loss during that span occurred two years ago when Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone when sacked by Shea McClellin during the first series in a 27-20 home loss.
Green Bay has won in 18 of its last 22 visits to Soldier Field, winning and covering the past five times. That streak isn’t likely to end this week as Green Bay is favored by a touchdown.
Rams SUCCESS AT HOME VS SEATTLE
The St. Louis Rams have dropped nine of their last 11 NFC West division games. They have yet to win more than seven games during Jeff Fisher’s three seasons as head coach. However, under Fisher the Rams have played the Seahawks tough at home going 3-0 ATS and 2-1 SU.
That lone St. Louis defeat came in 2013 when backup quarterback Kellen Clemens couldn’t push the Rams in from the one-yard line on the final two plays in a 14-9 loss.
St. Louis has been a home underdog 13 times under Fisher. They have covered 61 percent of those games. The Rams are 4-point underdogs against Seattle.
Browns 1-15 SU in Last 16 Openers
Early money has come in on the host New York Jets against Cleveland. Those wagering on the Jets, especially on the moneyline, sure have history on their side. Since returning to the NFL in 1999, the Browns have lost 15 of their 16 opening games. Cleveland’s only opening week win occurred against Baltimore in 2004.
The Browns have lost 28 of their last 33 away games according to the OddsShark NFL Database, including 12 of their past 15 in September.
Something has to give with Tampa Bay hosting Tennessee. The Titans are on a 10-game losing streak, covering just twice. The Buccaneers lost all eight of their home games last season, going 2-6 ATS.
Tampa Bay is a field goal favorite. The Buccaneers failed to cover the three times they were chalk last season, losing straight-up each time.
