The 2023 NFL regular season schedule has been announced, and fans are already getting excited about the upcoming games. Many sports enthusiasts who enjoy traveling may begin booking their accommodations now. The anticipation for primetime matches is building and avid sports bettors are starting to place their bets.
PointsBet’s oddsmakers suggest that the Chicago Bears have a good chance of starting the season strong with a 2.5-point favorite against the Green Bay Packers in Week 1 of the NFL season. There are good reasons to believe the Bears can come out with a win. Aaron Rodgers is no longer the quarterback for the Packers, and Jordan Love is now in charge of the offense. Although Love has limited action and shown wide variation, the Bears’ offense has improved significantly, due to the addition of DJ Moore and Darnell Wright.
However, the Packers still have a formidable defensive line and two top-level running backs, Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon. The Bears’ defensive and offensive line have several questions, which may pose a challenge. Regardless of the outcome, the fact that oddsmakers are favoring the Bears over their opponents suggests that the rivalry has changed somewhat.
The Bears haven’t beaten the Packers since 2018, and odds are provided by PointsBet. As the official sports betting partner, we may receive a reward if you bet on PointsBet for the first time after clicking on our link. Click here to follow the Under Center podcast.
