Vegas odds for Bears-Packers in Week 1

Vegas odds for Bears-Packers in Week 1

by - Senior Editor -

The NFL season is still a few months away, but that hasn't stopped sportsbooks from releasing early odds for some of the most anticipated matchups of the year.

One such game is the Week 1 rivalry matchup between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers.

For the first time in decades, the Bears will be facing a Packers quarterback not named Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers. Jordan Love is expected to be under center for Green Bay, ushering in a new era for the Packers.

On the other side of the ball, there's plenty of excitement surrounding Bears quarterback Justin Fields.

With both teams looking to make a statement in the season opener, early odds have emerged favoring the Bears by 2.5 points, according to BetMGM. This may come as a surprise to some, given Chicago's struggles against Green Bay in recent years.

A win over the Packers in Week 1 would be a huge confidence boost for the Bears and could set the tone for the rest of the season.

It would also give Chicago fans something to cheer about after years of disappointment and frustration.

Of course, it's still early, and a lot can change between now and the start of the season.

Injuries, roster moves, and other factors could all play a role in the outcome of this game. However, the early odds suggest that the Bears are being viewed as a team on the rise, while the Packers may be facing some uncertainty with their new quarterback.
