Sunday Night Football is nearly upon us! For Week 2’s SNF showdown, the Chicago Bears will be taking on the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

We have two picks for this matchup — here are the sharp bets from OddsJam to lock in now!

Bears vs. Packers Sunday Night Football Sharp Picks

Packers -9.5 | -112 at FanDuel

The Green Bay Packers did not have a good outing against the Minnesota Vikings last week. The loss of All-Pro receiver Davante Adams was evident, as Aaron Rodgers was unable to connect with his young receivers enough to create an offensive rhythm.

I locked this pick in at -112 at FanDuel, but be sure to shop for the best line here at OddsJam.

Moneyline

Green Bay was torched by Vikings wideout Justin Jefferson, which has rightfully made all the highlight reels this week. However, the defense actually played well enough overall to keep Green Bay in the game until the very end.

The Bears, on the other hand, are coming off an impressive Week 1 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. This game turned into a slugfest in a downpour of rain, one that Chicago proved to be the more physical team.

Despite the Week 1 results, backing Aaron Rodgers in a bounce-back game is the smart play, particularly against a team he has minority ownership in. Rodgers has harassed the Bears for years and the Packers have won the last six matchups between the two.

The lines are moving, but you can still get -9.5 at some books at time of writing. I’d play this to -10.

Over 41.5 Points | -115 at DraftKings

This may seem rather bold given the offensive performances from these two teams last week, but this is a very profitable pick.

The Bears, in the middle of an insane windy city rainstorm, managed to score 19 points on an elite 49ers defense. That’s just 3 points shy from them holding up their end of Sunday Night Football’s over.

Moneyline

Green Bay will not have a repeat performance offensively. Rodgers and company had a similar outing against the Saints in Week 1 last season, then bounced back the rest of the way. Look for the combination of A.J. Dillon and Aaron Jones to lead the way against a lesser Bears defense than that of San Francisco.

Assuming the Bears can at least match their point total from last week’s downpour, this over has a great shot of cashing.
