Detroit Lions (+2.5) at Chicago bears (-2.5); Total 45
We have a great NFC North matchup with the Lions heading to Chicago to face a Bears team that has been playing some great football. The Bears are coming off an impressive 30-24 win over the Eagles last Monday night. With that win the Bears have now won 3 in a row putting up 103 points. This will be a rematch from week #5 when the Lions came away from with a 24-13 win in Detroit. The Lions are coming off a 45-10 blowout win over the Broncos 2 weeks ago (they had a bye last week). Previous to that the Lions had dropped two straight. This is a huge game for both teams, especially the Bears. With Green Bay at 8-0 it is unlikely either of these teams will win the division. That means the Lions and Bears will be battling for a wild card spot. If the Lions win this game they will go two games up on Chicago and own the tiebreaker. If the Bears come away with the win both teams will sit at 6-3 on the season.
The Lions won the week #5 matchup 24-13 and Lions RB Jahvid Best played a major role with 172 total yards. The Lions will be without Best (concussion) for this game. The Bears had a hard time protecting Cutler early in the season but they seem to have that fixed. Cutler has only been sacked 3 times in the last 3 games. The Bears are playing their best football of the season and need this game to keep pace with the Lions, and I bet they do. I’ll take the Bears -2.5 points for 1.83 at 5 Dimes Online Sportsbook.
