Aaron Rodgers have Bears fans doing the unthinkable during Packers games
After all these years, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers still has the number of the Chicago Bears. The latest episode of Mr. Rodgers Owns The Bears was shown Sunday night, with the Packers beating Chicago at Soldier Field to the tune of a 24-14 score.
The Packers were around 5.5-point favorites in that game, but Rodgers made sure that Green Bay would easily cover the spread by passing for 195 yards and two touchdowns without an interception while completing 17-of-23 passes. For good measure, Rodgers also added a rushing touchdown. Rodgers has dominated the Bears for so long that even Chicago fans have made it a habit to bet on the Packers whenever their team is up against Green Bay.
“Bears fans appear to have accepted their Rodgers fate and are trying to make a few bucks along the way,” BetRivers sportsbook manager Zach Schlouch said. Backing Rodgers and the Pack against the Bears has been a winning strategy for years. With Sunday’s 24-14 win, Rodgers improved to 22-5 straight-up and 20-7 against the spread versus the Bears. He’s 11-3 outright and against the spread at Soldier Field.
Making Bears fans bet against their own team is just one of the signs why Aaron Rodgers is among the most feared men on the football field of this generation. Separating one’s allegiance to a team as a sports fan from a betting persona is also one of the skills every bettor needs to develop if they want to succeed in profiting off sports betting in the long run.
