Tips For Betting On Bears Lions – Lions Try To Ruin The Bears' Season

Posted by Tony Bryant on 12/24/2012 4:44:16 PM
The Chicago Bears can make the playoffs, but the flip side of that equation is that the Detroit Lions can knock the Monsters of the Midway out of the NFC playoff hunt as well.

Chicago Bears @ Detroit Lions – Sunday, December 30

Sport betting line: Chicago -3

Why Chicago Will Win

If you want to make a winning bet on this game, it's going to be hard to argue with a Chicago pick. The Bears scored two defensive touchdowns and put the foot down against a bad opponent. It's very much worth noting that Arizona thumped Detroit, 38-10, a week and a half ago, so Chicago's ability to win in suburban Phoenix offers a clear point of comparison between the Bears and the Lions heading into this week 17 clash. Chicago is definitely in a better frame of mind, playing with urgency and – crucially – once again emerging from a win after a prolonged stretch of losing. The Bears needed to wash the bitter taste of defeat out of their mouths, and now that they've done so, they should be able to take care of business against a Detroit team that seems to have mentally checked out of this season.

The Lions are simply withering as the season approaches the finish line. Head coach Jim Schwartz has publicly acknowledged the extent to which his team has lost control of its season, primarily because it has lost control of its belief. There are reasons to question Chicago in this contest, but the poor quality and minimal fight being displayed by Detroit should tip the competitive balance of this game in favor of the Bears. Playing a disillusioned and psychologically hijacked team is probably what will save Chicago in the end.

Why Detroit Will Win

When NFL betting students assess various factors and try to offer a path to victory for the underdogs, they will not have to overthink the matter. The Bears are a flawed team that has clearly not fixed its problems on offense. When you consider that the Bears scored two defensive touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals this past Sunday, it occurs to the rational individual that the offense didn't do very much.

A 14-point showing is perhaps not awful, but it is poor, and quarterback Jay Cutler knows that he has to be better in this game in order to lift the Bears to a 10-6 record and a shot at the playoffs. Chicago's offense has been horrible in the month of December. This offense has lost its edge, and what is instructive about the Bears' offense is that it knows that the defense is missing linebacker and spiritual leader Brian Urlacher. At a time when the Bears have needed their offense to step up, Cutler has not answered the call.

This will not inspire trust or confidence in the Bears locker room, and it can lead to the kind of disjointed performance that will enable the Lions, with Calvin Johnson catching more passes in a record-setting year, to outscore them.

Who Will Win

The Lions will be desperate, but they won't be prepared or adequate. Pick the Bears on the road. Chicago is more mature and more equipped to win this game.
