Bears Lions Betting – Lions Look To Tame Bears On Monday Night Football

Posted by Tony Bryant on 10/6/2011 6:06:27 PM

It is fitting that as the undefeated Detroit Lions take the stage on Monday Night Football, they are set to host a Chicago Bears’ team against which they suffered their last loss a year ago. Tied with the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers at the top of the NFL as the only two undefeated teams, the Lions will look to avenge that loss and extend their perfect sports betting record against their division rivals in week five.

NFL Betting Lines: Detroit Lions – 5.5

The Lions have managed to stay undefeated despite falling behind by at least 20 points in each of their last two games, but will look to avoid another slow start this week. Inconsistencies have made Chicago one of the harder teams to predict early on this season, and they should have their hands full in just their second game away from home.

The biggest problem with the Bears is their offensive line, which has allowed Jay Cutler to take a full season worth of hits already at the quarter mark. Not only have they struggled to protect their quarterback, but at the same time Chicago hasn’t been able to open up lanes for their running backs, and that has led to an offense that goes through period where they really struggle to move the ball. The stronger sportsbook promo teams that the Bears have faced have made them pay, and they can count on the Lions next in line if they struggle again. Despite a reputation as one of the better units in the league, Chicago’s defense has struggled against both the run and pass, and ranks in the bottom third of the NFL in both categories.

With three straight home games, the Lions now have the chance to prove to their critics that they are contenders in the NFC. Detroit will welcome the Bears to Ford Field, before playing against the San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons, and how they perform over this next stretch will go a long to determining how they finish. There is no doubt that Calvin Johnson ranks among the best wide receivers in the NFL, and it was nice to see him silence his critics with a huge game against the Cowboys. As long as Matt Stafford is there to get him the ball, Johnson should continue to thrive on one of the most dangerous offenses in the league. The Lions’ defense looked suspect against Dallas last week, especially along the line. Detroit will need to find a way to generate more pressure up front, in order to cause havoc for Cutler and the Bears.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

After years of struggles in the Motor City, the Lions have finally arrived and there is no reason to think that they will slow down anytime soon. Detroit has the chance to make a statement on Monday Night Football against a division rival, and they have the weapons on both sides of the ball to put away the Bears.
