NFL Week 14 Lions vs. Bears odds preview
The NFC North-leading Lions (9-3) are a consensus 3-point road favorite (-175 moneyline) Sunday with a game total in the 43-point range.
Detroit has won four of its last five overall and is only a game behind the 10-2 Philadelphia Eagles in the race for the NFC’s No. 1 seed.
QB Jared Goff and the Lions’ offense rank sixth in scoring (27.3 points per game), but the Detroit defense has struggled at times, ranking 23rd with an average of 23.8 points surrendered per contest.
The Bears (4-8), meanwhile rank 21st in scoring (20.2 ppg) and 27th in scoring defense (24.7).
Chicago, though, has gone 4-4 since an 0-4 start and has won two of its last three games. Its only loss in that stretch was a 31-26 Week 11 setback in Detroit in which the Lions rallied with 17 unanswered points in the final four minutes.
NFL Week 14 Lions vs. Bears best bet: Bears +3.5 (-120 or better)
The Bears have covered in five of eight games since their aforementioned 0-4 (SU and ATS) start while the Lions are dealing with mounting injury issues and will have to contend with the December elements playing outdoors in the Windy City.
That points to a close, division tussle Sunday and a Chicago home cover.
NFL Week 14 Lions vs. Bears top player prop: Justin Fields over 258.5 passing/rushing yards (-115 or better)
Fields has totaled at least 270 combined aerial/ground yards in five of the seven full games he’s played this season, including 273 (169 passing, 104 rushing) last month against the Lions.
Detroit, meanwhile, has surrendered at least 334 total yards and 26 points in each of its last four games and been gashed for 104-plus Fields rushing yards alone in each of its last three games vs. Chicago.
