Detroit Vs Chicago Odds & Betting Advice
Detroit Lions (5-4) at Chicago Bears (3-6)
When: Sunday, November 19 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: Soldier Field
Stream: Fox Sports Go
NFL Odds: Detroit -3
Bet the Detroit Lions Because…
The Lions have won two straight games and moved above .500 by beating the winless Cleveland Browns last weekend, although it took 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to get the win and ATS cover as a 10.5-point home favorite. Matthew Stafford tossed three TD passes and one pick in the win and the Lions managed to get the win despite giving up 201 rushing yards and losing the time of possession battle by almost 10 minutes.
Detroit is ranked a healthy sixth in scoring this season as Stafford has passed for 2,461 yards with 17 TD passes and a modest six interceptions, but the Lions have been just mediocre defensively in giving up 23.3 points per contest (21st).
Bet the Chicago Bears Because…
Chicago has dropped two straight and got completely robbed out of a touchdown if you ask me in their heartbreaking 23-16 Week 10 loss to Green Bay while failing to cover the chalk as a 4.5-point home underdog. Rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky passed for 297 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions but the Bears were held to just 55 rushing yards in the loss. To make matters worse, Chicago got robbed out of what I still believe was a touchdown when head coach John Fox challenged running back Benny Hill’s 23-yard screen play score that was eventually not ruled a touchdown, but a touchback that gave the Packers the ball.
Detroit Vs Chicago Betting Advice
Detroit has won seven of the last 10 meetings against Chicago while going 5-4-1 against the Bears during the span. The Lions have also gone a perfect 8-0 ATS in their last eight games in the month of November and have more than enough motivation to get the win and cover the chalk in this division showdown as they seek their second straight playoff berth this season.
