Stephen Nover's College Football Season/Bowl Package

Yearly (09/25/2014 - 02/01/2015)

College presents opportunities that the NFL doesn't where sometimes you can actually find line value.

I've beaten the colleges the past two years averaging 57.5 percent while hitting 64 percent in the bowls by combining many handicapping factors such as matchup analysis, statistics, history, weather and situational elements. Information is the key because there are just so many teams and conferences on the betting board now.

I don't rule out any game or conference. It's a task to find the time to adequately handicap each game. So I'm fortunate that I have many sources to rely on. Many stem from having been a sportswriter/sports editor for daily newspapers in the Midwest, South and West for more than 20 years and having been the sports gaming writer for the Las Vegas Review-Journal for 13 years while also having covered the UNLV football team as the team beat writer for several years.

I have the knowledge, experience and resources necessary to win. I've won the past two years and I fully expect to turn a tidy profit again this season.

Green Bay vs. Chicago, 09/28/2014 13:00 EDT

Point Spread: -1½/-110 Green Bay

Sportsbook: BookMaker

Chicago limps home after back-to-back gutty road victories, using a huge second-half to upset San Francisco and getting past the Jets this past Monday night.

What awaits the Bears is a hungry Packers squad that will get their prolific offense in gear in this matchup. The Bears could be down eight starters. Their secondary is down three starters, including both safeties. They don't have the secondary depth to handle all of Green Bay's receiving weapons.

The Packers didn't fare well last week on the road against the Lions, who also had multiple injuries in the secondary. There is a difference here, though. The Lions can stop the run ranking No. 2 in the league holding foes to 63.7 yards per game. Seattle also is dominant against the run ranking No. 5. The Jets are No. 1 versus the run holding opponents to a meager 55 yards on the ground. Those were the Packers' first three opponents and a big reason why Eddie Lacy has rushed for just 113 yards and 3.1 yards per carry.

Chicago ranks 26th in run defense giving up an average of 144.7 yards per game. The Bears were 30th in yards allowed and points given up last year. Their defense remains weak, made more so by injuries although good-looking rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller makes the loss of Charles Tillman easier to swallow. Fuller has been outstanding so far, but perhaps no cornerback in the league was as adept at causing turnovers as Tillman.

This is Lacy's first easy game and he's helped by having right tackle Bryan Bulaga, an excellent run blocker, back in the lineup. The Bears are going to be forced to commit both of their safeties to pass coverage opening things up even more for Lacy. Rodgers is even more deadly with ground support, something he hasn't had so far.

The Bears are going to put up their share of points, too, but I don't see them being able to keep up with the Packers. Jay Cutler has had some brutal games against Green Bay with the Packers' veteran defensive coordinator Dom Capers effectively confusing him with different blitz packages. Capers is 8-1 against the Bears and Cutler.

Brandon Marshall is not 100 percent bothered by an ankle injury. He was limping during the Monday night game against the Jets catching only one pass for six yards. The Bears are down two competent offensive line starters with center Roberto Garza and left guard Matt Slauson unlikely to be recovered from high ankle sprains they suffered three weeks ago.

Chicago used to have outstanding special teams with Devin Hester returning kicks/punts and Dave Toub coaching. But Toub left two years ago and the Bears' special teams have gone from great to bad under Joe DeCamillis.

Green Bay has covered in six of its last seven meetings versus the Bears with the lone loss coming last year in Green Bay when Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone early in the game. The Packers have won in their last four visits to Solider Field.

This is a very short trip for the Packers. Sometimes the Packers haven't taken the Bears as seriously as the Bears have taken them, but yet still have managed to win. This time the Packers will be treating this game as crucial not wanting to lose a second straight NFC North Division game.

The Bears have been a real money-burner at home going 3-12-1 ATS. They haven't matched up well to the Packers even when healthy and now they're in a dangerous situation. This is the right spot for Green Bay.

(Editor's note: Stephen Nover has beaten the NFL in 18 of the last 20 years and is coming off a 3-1 week. Stephen is going for his third consecutive winning college football season and is off to a fast start with a 10-6 record entering this week. Look for the rest of Stephen's football plays later in the week. Already up and available is Stephen's NFC Game of the Month.)
