Bears vs Lions Odds
Mitch Trubisky is sitting this game out with a shoulder injury and that leaves Chase Daniels under center for the game against the Lions. This could be the reason for the line move in this game. The Bears started out at (-4) and that number has moved all the way down to (-2.5) at certain sportsbooks. The betting action is even across the board as 52% of the bets are coming in on the bears for this game. The over/under is at 43.
Bears vs Lions Preview
The Bears are winning impressively of late and the big win over the Vikings sent a message to the league that this team is ready to challenge for a title. But will they have letdown in the Turkey Day game? Teams on the road in shorts weeks this year have been a bad bet. The Lions have their share of injuries as well. The Lions will be without RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) and WR Marvin Jones Jr. (knee) for the game.
Bears vs Lions predictions
The Bears struggle in Motown as they are just 2-6 against the spread (ATS) in the last eight meetings in Detroit. They are also 1-6 ATS when playing on a short week and the Lions are 7-3 ATS in the last ten games against the NFC. Daniels is capable and he knows this offense. The problem is that he has yet to take a snap with the first team offense and won’t have much time to prepare. That means the Bears are in trouble on Thanksgiving and the best point is the Lions and the points.
