The Lions won in a tight 41-38 game against the Los Angeles Chargers, with an extraordinary performance by quarterback Jared Goff. 

The Bears returned to victory, beating the Carolina Panthers 16-13, with a decent defensive performance.

Why Bet on the Lions?

The Detroit Lions have had one of their best starts to a season in recent years, being the great contenders to win the North Division of the National Conference, beating teams like the Vikings, Packers, and the Bears themselves. 

In their last presentation, they won in a great game 41-38 to the Chargers, with Jared Goff having an excellent performance with 333 yards, 23 of 33 passes, and two assists for a touchdown. Goff is an experienced quarterback in his eighth NFL season, and this year has 2,507 yards rushing, 14 touchdown passes, five interceptions, and a 68.4% completion percentage. 

Also of note from the last game was Jahmyr Gibbs, who recorded two touchdowns. David Montgomery, Amon-Ra St. Brown, and Brock Wright also had touchdowns that day. Defensively, they got an interception with Kerby Joseph. 

Detroit has five of nine games away from home, but most opponents are below .500, so they are well on their way to winning their division for the first time in 30 years. 

On the injured list is CJ Gardner-Johnson, while Halapoulivaati Vaitai, Levi Onwuzurike, and Donovan People-Jones are questionable.

Why Bet on the Bears?

The Chicago Bears are in the opposite position to the Lions, as they have a 3-7 record and are far from thinking about the Playoffs. 

However, in their last presentation, they achieved a 16-13 victory over the Carolina Panthers, with 20 of 33 successful passes by Tyson Bagent, who also completed 162 yards. 

On the other hand, the offensive work of D’Onta Foreman, who recorded a touchdown and had 21 carries, with 80 yards, should be highlighted. 

The Chicago team overcame the Panthers thanks to a good defensive performance, even though they did not intercept the ball to quarterback Bryce Young. 

This franchise has not had the level to compete, and the goal is to develop its young 23-year-old quarterback, Tyson Bagent. He has had five games this season, totaling 859 yards, with three touchdown passes and six interceptions. He still has some maturing to do, but there is no pressure on him with a rebuilding team. 

Currently in doubt are Terell Smith, Nate Davis, Tremaine Edmunds, Justin Fields, and Khari Blasingame.

Final Betting Analysis: Lions vs. Bears 

The Chicago Bears won in their last game, but the win will end up falling to Detroit, who will make their stadium respected. 

The numbers at have the Lions as favorites, as the Moneyline for them shows -420. Meanwhile, the Bears have +375. 

The last time these teams played each other, the victory was by a 41-10 Lions landslide. 

Go for a win in the Lions’ Moneyline. If you bet $100 at -420, you will gain $23 for a total payout of $123.
