This is a weird game for sure, as the public is all over the place. The Bears are getting 65% of the betting action on their side, but if you listen to the talking heads all over the country, this is a game that the Lions seem destined to win, just because the Bears can’t win the big time game. Alas, the history in this series is insanely in favor of the Monsters of the Midway for a reason. Chicago is clearly and definitively the better of these two teams. All of this talk about all of the milestones in Detroit is great, but Head Coach Lovie Smith and the gang really could care less if WR Calvin Johnson goes off for another 200+ yard game and if QB Matthew Stafford gets to 5,000 passing yards for the year or not. It’s all about the ‘W’ in the 1:00 hour, and it’s all about rooting for the Packers (as much as that must hurt Bears fans to say) in the 4:00 hour. Detroit has lost seven games in a row for a reason, and it is 1-6 ATS in those games for a reason as well. Tis the season to fade the Lions.
Bears @ Lions Pick: Chicago Bears -3
Bears @ Lions Score Prediction: Chicago 27 – Detroit 17
