3* Oddsmakers Error on Chicago Bears PICK
Detroit vs. Chicago,
11/10/2013 13:00 EDT,
Score: 21 - 19
Point Spread: 0/-110 Chicago
This is round two between these teams, but the venue favors the Bears this time around. The last matchup was a shootout with Detroit picking up a 40-32 victory. Since then the Lions have lost two of their last four games, including a loss as a favorite versus Cincinnati. Chicago has won two out of their last three, beating the Giants and Packers, with the lone loss coming on a late desperation play by the Redskins.
The Bears have the better offense in this matchup. They average 30 points per game this season, while the Lions have averaged just 22 points per game when playing on the road. Defensively the Lions are every bit as bad as Chicago. They have given up 24.6 points per game this season, while the Bears have allowed 24.5 points per game at home. With home field advantage I think Chicago gets their revenge with a big win this week.
The Lions are 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games, and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games against a team with a winning home record. The Bears have a tendency to turn things on in the second half of the season, posting a 9-3-1 ATS record in their last 13 games played during the month of November. Take the home team in this game, because the Bears will come to play.
