NFL Football Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions Start Time, Betting Odds, Free Pick

The Detroit Lions are playing host to the Chicago Bears in NFL Football action on Sunday. The game is scheduled for a 1:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised live on CBS. The NFL Odds for the game have the Lions favored at home by a touchdown to pick up the win.

NFL Odds
Detroit -7.5
Total: 43 points

The Detroit Lions are in sole possession of first place in the NFC North. Another win here for the Lions would allow them to put more distance on the rest of the division. Both Minnesota and Green Bay are 6-6 on the season and each are headed in different directions — Green Bay has won two straight, Minnesota has lost two in a row.

Detroit has picked up wins in each of the last four games this season and they’ve been very strong at home, winning five of six games overall. Winning last week at New Orleans is a huge confidence boost for QB Matt Stafford and the team, who have routinely struggled on the road the past few seasons. Winning easily last week over Drew Brees and the Saints was largely in part to the defense also playing very well.

The first matchup between these two teams saw the Bears win in Chicago by a field goal, back then Brian Hoyer was the QB for the Bears. Now the starter is Matt Barkley. Hoyer was able to throw a couple of TD passes while going over 300 yards in that one as Detroit’s defense struggled to get off the field in key spots.

Chicago is coming off a big win at home last week against San Francisco, a game marred by snow with horrible overall conditions. They certainly have to have some confidence heading into this week as well, but with injuries all over the field and the Lions holding revenge, it does not look good for Chicago.

Stafford and the Lions have a huge spot here to reach a ninth win, they’re at home and looking to put up some points.

Free Pick: Detroit
