Dominating isn’t often a word used to describe the Detroit Lions, but after five straight wins over the Chicago Bears, it seems appropriate. With basically nothing on the line for either team (except a better draft pick for the loser), the players will simply be playing for the love of the game, or for pending free-agents, fatter contract offers in the offseason.
- The visiting team is 2-7-1 ATS in the last 10 games in this matchup.
- In 13 career games vs the Lions, Jay Cutler has 18 TD passes and eight interceptions.
- The total has gone OVER in the Bears' last four games.
Some alarming trends stick out for the Bears heading into the game. Most disturbing for the team and their season ticket holders is the team’s 1-9 SU home record in their last 10 games. They’ve also been a bad bet against divisional opponents, posting a 6-14 ATS record in their last 20 games vs divisional foes.
The Lions will be looking to end the season on a three game win streak, after winning their last two games, both SU and ATS. The Lions won a close game over the Bears on October 18th—37-34. Matthew Stafford went off in the game for 405 passing yards and four touchdowns, while Calvin Johnson had his only 100+ receiving yard game of the season—catching six balls, for 166 yards and a touchdown.
