Lions vs Bears - Week 6 NFL Odds

Matt Forte Chicago Bears

After coming off two consecutive wins the Chicago Bears may be feeling pretty good, but the former Monsters of the Midway are just 1-4 SU and 0-5 ATS in their past five visits to Ford Field. Things might be different this time around when the Bears visit the Detroit Lions Sunday, with the Lions suffering from some embarrassing performances recently.

Shark Bites
  • The Lions are 5-0 ATS in their last five games as favorites against the Bears.
  • The Bears are 1-4 ATS in their last five games on the road before the bye.
  • Lions WR Calvin Johnson has not eclipsed 90-yards receiving in a game this season.

Quarterback Jay Cutler has been doing a good job for the Bears during their past two games with the 10th year veteran tossing four touchdowns and one interception. However, the increased play from Cutler has meant Matt Forte has been struggling to get anything going and has averaged 3.7 yards per carry in those games.

When your starting quarterback gets benched for Dan Orlovsky you know there’s trouble. That’s exactly what happened to Matthew Stafford last week as the signal caller threw three picks against the Cardinals. Lions coach Jim Caldwell reportedly told Stafford at halftime that if he threw one more pick he was getting pulled, which Stafford promptly did within five minutes.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Detroit Lions were listed as -2.5-point favorites at Bovada and other online Sportsbooks, with the total listed at one point at 44.5.

A 22-20 result in favor of the Lions is the prediction by the Odds Shark handicapping pick engine. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NFL matchups here.
