While this is a matchup of two teams on completely different ends of the standings, it doesn’t mean it can’t be a fun NFC North matchup. There’s betting value to be had when the Chicago Bears visit the Detroit Lions.
Chicago Bears vs. Detroit Lions: Betting Odds
Spread: Detroit -8, Over/under: 48 points, Chicago +310 | Detroit -395
Chicago comes into this owners of a 3-7 record, but they’ll have QB Justin Fields back from a thumb surgery in what is a crucial stretch for him to prove he’s a quarterback worth building around, or raise his stock for other teams, or both.
The Bears won last week, but their issues start on the defensive side of the football. Their run defense is quite stout but they’ve shown no ability to slow down opposing passing attacks. That might be a problem against this explosive Lions team.
