NFL Betting Online Odds:
The Lions pounce into this Week 10 matchup sporting a 3-5 record that pegs them as the worst team in the NFC North. On top of that, Detroit enters this weekend’s contest riding a 2-game losing streak. But considering that Detroit is 9-1 in their last 10 meetings against the Bears, can we really expect them to lose this weekend’s contest? Well, considering just how poor Detroit has looked this season, the answer is a resounding yes. The Lions were expecting a new-look under Matt Patricia but have delivered the same old results. One week the Lions are playing at a high level, the next they’re losing 24-9 to the Vikings.
Players to Watch: Matthew Stafford (2,111 passing yards, 14 TD, 6 INT), Kerryon Johnson (503 rushing yards, 1 TD, 0 F), and Kenny Golladay (523 receiving yards, 3 TD, 33 REC).
The Bears pounce into this Sunday’s NFC North match sporting a 5-3 record that ranks them as the best team in the NFC North. However, the 5-3-1 Minnesota Vikings are hot on the Bears’ trail. With that in mind, it’s clear that Chicago needs to pull off a win this Sunday. Fortunately, the Lions shouldn’t pose too much of a threat for Chicago – who enter this weekend’s action riding a 2-game winning streak. However, those two wins came against the Jets and the Bills, who aren’t the toughest teams in the NFL. On top of that, Detroit will be gunning for a rebound to appease their ailing fans. But considering that the Bears are giving up just 19.1 points per game, they shouldn’t have too hard of a time holding off Matt Stafford & Co.
Players to Watch: Mitchell Trubisky (1,949 passing yards, 16 TD, 7 INT), Jordan Howard (439 rushing yards, 5 TD, 1 F), and Taylor Gabriel (426 receiving yards, 2 TD, 37 REC).
