Payout: +350

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ offense sorely missed Davante Adams in their Week 1 matchup against Minnesota, as Green Bay scored just seven points on 338 total yards and turned the ball over twice in an ugly 23-7 loss to the Vikings last Sunday. However, the Packers are no strangers to abnormally slow starts, as they also posted a miserable 38-3 loss to New Orleans in Week 1 of last season before ultimately winning 13 of their next 16 games to claim the top seed in the NFC.

The Bears, on the other hand, took down San Francisco in a fluky slip-and-slide game in Week 1, as Chicago tallied just 204 total yards against the Niners’ 331 total yards during a torrential downpour this past Sunday, and somehow, still escaped Soldier Field with a 19-10 victory. I’ll back Green Bay here, as the Packers and Bears both had underwhelming offensive outings in Week 1, however, I expect Green Bay’s offense to bounce back with authority after generating just seven points in Minnesota last week.

The Packers didn’t run the ball very much in Week 1, however, they ran it well the few times they did, as Green Bay rushed 18 times for 111 yards during their 23-7 loss to Minnesota last week, with AJ Dillon picking up 45 yards and a TD on 15 carries; and Aaron Jones rushing for 49 yards on five carries.

Jones has been the Packers’ featured back for the last few seasons, however, last week’s carries were divvied up with the two-headed monster strategy they utilized towards the end of last year, as Dillon averaged 56 rushing yards per game on 13.9 carries across the last eight weeks of the regular season, compared to Jones’ averaging 47.2 yards per game on 9.2 carries across that same window. Honestly, I won’t be surprised if both backs have big games, but I think you’re best bet is leaning on Dillon in a comfortable Packers’ win on Sunday night.
