Take the Bears -3

The Bears come into this season after a great 12-4 regular season but are still bitter about losing in Wild Card weekend. The Packers had disappointing 6-9-1 2018. Lots have changed for both teams since 2018. The Packers in my opinion still have a lot of questions to be answered. They come in with a rookie head coach in Matt LaFleur and rookie head coaches were 0-5 last season in their openers. It remains to be seen how well Aaron Rodgers and Matt LeFleur will mesh. Also, other than Davante Adams the Packers don't have any elite playmakers as of yet. I do think the defense of the Packers has improved from last season and I do think overall as a team they have improved but not enough to take them with 3 points against the Bears. The Bears are better on both sides of the ball. Offensively they have a revamped running game that should be more exciting than last season and Allen Robinson should have a better 2019 campaign now a year plus removed from his ACL injury which will give Mitch Trubisky another weapon to throw to. Defensively the Bears are still one of the better teams in the NFL and Khalil Mack might just be the best defensive player in the league. I think Green Bay will have trouble moving the ball against this Bears defense and Chicago gets the win and cover to open the NFL season.
