Detroit Lions vs Chicago Bears Pick, Prediction, and Odds
Monday Night Football this week features two NFC North rivals in the Chicago Bears and the Detroit Lions. Fortunately for Bears fans they get to play this one on their home field in Chicago, which could make all the difference. The Lions have struggled a bit at times this year both offensively and defensively, which has left them at the bottom of the North with a 2-3 record. They need that big divisional win to get things going in the right direction, and getting it against the division leading Bears, who are 4-1, could be the perfect thing for Matt Stafford and his Lions teammates. This game is on Monday at 8:30pm EST.
The Lions' offense just hasn't looked like it did last season. Last year they were throwing all over the place and putting a ton of points on the board, but this season it seems that defenses have keyed in on stopping that passing game. The Lions D hasn't been overly impressive either, but this game against the Bears is going to be about that Lions offense, including Stafford, Calvin Johnson, and Mikel Leshoure as well. If the Lions can get the run game to take some pressure off of Stafford then it would go a long way towards getting them this win.

The Bears have been impressive this year, flat out. It seems that when their passing game or offense in general isn't working very well, the defense steps up big time, and vice-versa. If they can keep feeding off of each other this season then the Bears have a great chance to make a nice run. Beating them on their home field won't be easy, and it'll be about whether or not Jay Cutler can avoid turning the ball over and can make the smart passes instead of forcing it into traffic.

I do think that the Chicago Bears are going to be able to get the win in this game in large part due to the fact that they are at home. The Lions came off their bye with a nice win against the Philadelphia Eagles, and I think that they'll head into another tough road game and keep it close throughout as well. I'm expecting a field goal game when all is said and done, so I'm rolling with the Lions to cover but lose it 27-24.
Pick: Detroit Lions +6.5
