Bears (-3.5) during Lions
“The Bears are roving high and they are personification good defense, that will plea a Lions’ descent line. The Lions have won 4 of their final 5 on Thanksgiving, and we consider with a good diversion from Matt Stafford they will make it 5 of six. With Chase Daniel roughly positively in as quarterback for a Bears, it gives a Lions a tiny some-more an edge. we favourite a Lions in an dissapoint even if Trubisky played.” — Pete Prisco on because he’s predicting
“Grin and bear it (pun intended) conditions here, with a Lions group that was heavily overmatched by a Bears dual weeks ago. However, Matthew Stafford has a flattering good story on Thanksgiving, even opposite tough defenses, and a Mitchell Trubisky damage situation, that competence finish adult with Chase Daniel starting for Chicago has me disposition Detroit. Plus, a Bears played on Sunday night and now have to play Thursday during 12:30 p.m. ET. That’s an impossibly brief turnaround.” — Will Brinson on why he’s holding a Lions.
When it comes to Bears vs. Lions, we need to hear what SportsLine comparison researcher Larry Hartstein has to say. Hartstein is 12-6 in his final 18 picks involving a Bears — he knows when to behind them, when to blur them. When these teams met in Week 10, Hartstein was all over a Bears (-6.5), writing: “Khalil Mack is entrance behind and a Bears are going to keep Matthew Stafford underneath duress. Lay it.” The result? Mack had dual of Chicago’s 6 sacks as a Bears dominated, 34-22. Now, Hartstein has sealed in a clever against-the-spread collect for Bears vs. Lions, and we can check it out over during SportsLine.

“The Bears are entrance off their many considerable win of a deteriorate and while Mitchell Trubisky wasn’t flawless, he during times looked able of apropos a authorization quarterback ubiquitous manager Ryan Pace envisioned when he drafted him second altogether in 2017. Unfortunately, a right-shoulder damage will extent Trubisky forward of Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day showdown with a Lions and there’s apparently a flattering good chance backup Chase Daniel is forced into duty. But Daniel knows manager Matt Nagy’s offense good from their time together in Kansas City and during this theatre of their particular careers, Daniel could be some-more unchanging than Trubisky. Added bonus: Chicago owns a league’s best defense. Either way, this is a outrageous NFC North matchup with playoff implications.” — Ryan Wilson, who in a low-scoring diversion
“The thing about this diversion is that we don’t feel like most has altered given their final meeting. When these dual teams played behind on Nov. 11, a Bears jumped out to a 26-0 lead and eventually won 34-22 in a diversion where they sacked Matthew Stafford 6 times. If I’m Stafford, we wouldn’t ever wish to see a Bears invulnerability again, let alone 11 days after they kick me to a pulp. The one tiny advantage a Lions will have in this diversion is that Chicago will fundamentally be personification on 0 rest. Not usually did they have to play Sunday night opposite Minnesota, though now, they have to spin around and play a early diversion on Thanksgiving. Of course, a Bears are so most improved than a Lions this substantially won’t matter. Instead of winning by 12 like they did final time, they’ll substantially usually win by 10, and instead of sacking Stafford 6 times, they’ll usually pouch him 5 times.” — John Breech, whoeven though Mitchell Trubisky
