Bears Lions Betting – Monsters Of The Midway Take Their Show To Ford Field Sunday

Posted by Tony Bryant on 11/29/2010 6:22:14 PM

Although they may not be as dominant as the units that led them to an NFC championship just a few years ago, the Chicago Bears’ defense has risen to the task in recent weeks, doing just enough to help their team to a four-game winning streak. Chicago hasn’t lost since before its bye week in late October, and will look to continue its dominance on the road at Ford Field, where the Bears face the Detroit Lions this Sunday.

While the Bears’ recent winning streak has propelled them in to top spot in the NFC North, the Lions have taken a step back with four straight losses, and are just 2-9 on the season. Despite the extra rest that will come from playing one of the Thanksgiving Thursday games, Detroit will have its work cut our for themselves against one of the best in the conference.

Why To Bet On The Bears

The Bears are firing on all cylinders right now, with the offense and defense both finding its groove as we enter the final stretch of the betting on NFL schedule. Quarterback Jay Cutler threw for 247 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday’s 31-26 win, while running back Matt Forte ran for 117 yards more against a Philadelphia Eagles’ defense that ranks in the top-ten overall. The offenses 31 points were a season-high, and if Chicago can find a way to keep their offense clicking, while their defense continues to show improvement, the Bears will be a legitimate contender. The Bears weren’t able to shut down the Eagles the way they had done to the Miami Dolphins the previous week, but they did enough to force Michael Vick in to his first turnover of the year, and they prevented the big plays that prove the most costly.

Why To Bet On The Lions

Detroit hasn’t been able to do much right over the past month, but that doesn’t mean they have been awful. The Lions nearly reeled off consecutive wins against the Washington Redskins and New York Jets, but ultimately fell to the latter 13-10 in overtime. It has been downhill from there with Thursday’s 45-24 loss to the New England Patriots the low point of their four-game slide. Detroit allowed Tom Brady to throw for a perfect passer rating, including four second-half touchdown passes. The Lions have lost a record, seven straight games at home on Thanksgiving Thursday, but maybe football betting fans can still have hope since this is the week after.

How The Game Will Play Out

While a big deal has been made about the Lions’ Thanksgiving Day record over the past seven years, the truth is that this is a team that has been horrible over that span regardless of when and where they play. That will continue this week with a visit from a determined Chicago team that ranks among the best in the NFC.
