Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Chicago Bears-Green Bay Packers Week 7 game, with the line from OddsShark.

Chicago Bears (1-5) at (-9) Green Bay Packers (3-2), Thursday, 8:30 p.m.
Mike: Bears. The Packers are a hot mess, and they continue to be overvalued at home, going 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight home games. The injury list is laughably long, and on a short week, even at home, they should be on upset alert, let alone be relied on to cover.
Ricky: Bears. What the hell is going on with Aaron Rodgers? He said after the Packers got their butts handed to them by the Cowboys in Week 6 that he was going to drink some Scotch and watch film. Perhaps he should consider hitting the sauce before the game, as something needs to change in Green Bay.
Andre: Bears. Fourteen of the Bears’ last 19 games have been decided by seven points or less. Brian Hoyer still hasn?t thrown a pick and Aaron Rodgers? struggles are well-documented. In his last 17 games, Rodgers has only one game with a passer rating of 100 or more. Packers win, but the Bears keep it close.
