Chicago Bears (+6) at Detroit Lions (-6); Total 48
The Week #5 Monday Nighter sees the Chicago Bears (2-2) heading to Detroit to face the undefeated Lions (4-0). The Lions are coming off another incredible second half comeback which saw them beat the Cowboys 34-30. The Lions trailed Dallas by 24 points in the 2nd half of that game. Again Lions WR Calvin Johnson had 2 TD catches for the 4th consecutive week. The week prior to that the Lions trailed the Vikings by 20 points at halftime before rallying in the 2nd half and eventually winning in overtime. As for the Bears they are coming off a 34-29 home win over Cam Newton and the Panthers. Bears RB Matt Forte had a huge day rushing for 200+ yards. The current betting line for the Bears / Lions game has the Lions as a -6 home favorite at Bodog Sportsbook. 6 points seems like to many points to be laying against a solid bears team. If the Lions fall behind early this week like like they have in previous weeks they will be in big trouble with how good Forte has been running the ball. The Lions have been living on the edge with these dramatic second half comebacks and we think it catches up with them this week. The Bears have won the last 6 meetings with the Lions. We’ll take the more desperate 2-2 Bears team and the +6 points in this contest.
