Lions +7 I know my Bears and I know we will not cover the td spread. Pettigrew will give us fits.
Even coming off a bye?
Yes. If you can get 7, bet a decent amount. We will struggle against Petttigrew tonight. The weather stinks right now and will stink at game time. Rainy, chilly etc.... Alshon Jeffrey is out which is a huge plus for the Lions defense. This game will be played close. Buy the half point if you need to.
If the weather isn't good wouldn't you favor the team that can run the ball better and is used to bad field conditions ie. the Bears? Detroit won't be able to run the ball at all against Chicago. I don't see the Lions performing well on a sloppy field. My biggest fear in taking the Bears tonight is Cutler. He is so Jeckyl and Hyde. How well will he play on a sloppy field in poor conditions. The more I look at this is taking the under the best play available tonight?
I agree with Jason, the weather favors the home team and forte. Best on da bears
Forte still isn't that healthy. Lions rush defense doesnt concern me. If you're laying 6.5/7 you're banking on the Bears defense to cash in. Pick 6s and fumbles. Dont expect a blow out tonight. You will feel better getting 7.
The books really need this one. Gimme Lions +10.5 @ -180
