The Bears are fighting tooth and nail to stay in it this year. Last week’s game against Tampa Bay went down a lot like their season so far – some early costly mistakes, but they managed to pull it together in the second half for a win.
The clincher is going to be the Bears inconsistent offense. If they can throw Stafford off his game in the first half, Chicago might have a chance of getting the points they need.
Even though the Bears are 8-7 against Detroit, the Lions are the favourite by 7 with 62% of the bettors. This isn’t as strong a majority as we’re used to, but this game could really go either way.
The Lions are coming off back-to-back losses, but are holding strong at 7-4 – second place in the NFC North. Their pitiful 34-9 loss to the Patriot’s will be fresh in their minds, so you can bet Detroit will be doing everything they can not to repeat it.
The OVER is set at 45.5 for this clash at Ford Field, and 68% of bettors are agreeing this time.
Look for the OVER this game will not stay below 45.5.
