63% of the early bets are on the home team.
Bottom LineIn terms of matchups, these two aren't that close. The Bears offense has been middle of the road all year (at best), while the Lions have shut things down for the most part (last week notwithstanding). With Cutler on a short week and on the road, it could get ugly - especially if they fall behind. I can't see how Chicago's OL can hold up long enough to keep the offense moving.
The head-scratching thing is just how inept this Lions offense has been. They've been one of the best teams on third downs, but beyond that they are a bottom 10 unit. Some of that is due to Megatron's health, but they should still be more productive than they have been. Is this the week they turn things around? The Bears defense has been embarrassingly bad overall.
I am confident Detroit win this game, but I'm not sure by how many. Therefore, the easy solution is to put them in a teaser and bring -7 down to -1.
