The Packers are the favorites against the Bears in a battle of the NFC North.

The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears meet Sunday in a tough NFC North battle, the first divisional game for each team. The current NFL odds are in favor of the Packers, for now, but Green Bay isn't as big of a favorite as the reigning Super Bowl champions probably should be.

The Packers are currently four-point favorites on the road at Soldier Field, which seems a bit low considering Green Bay is playing a team that lost 30-13 to the New Orleans Saints last week -- the same the Packers bested during the first week of the regular season.

The Packers will rely on their passing attack once again as Aaron Rodgers will look to exploit the Chicago secondary by spreading the football around to Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, Jermichael Finley, Jordy Nelson and anyone else wearing green looking to catch a pass. Oddly enough, Jay Cutler and the Bears will likely be looking to do the same thing considering the Packers defensive secondary lost a key piece when Nick Collins went down with a neck injury last week against the Carolina Panthers.

Odds are this game is going to be a shootout, meaning it might be worth taking the over on the over-under of 45.
