Two NFC North teams that are clearly flailing clash at Soldier Field. The 1-2 Chicago Bears play host to the 0-3 Detroit Lions.

The Bears actually show a worse point differential (-37) than the Lions (-28), even though Chicago has a win on the season. The Bears are a 3-point pick in the NFL betting odds.

Check out the latest Lions vs. Bears odds, betting lines, injury report and more.

Lions vs Bears Key Matchups

Justin Fields vs Detroit defensive front: The Cleveland Browns made Fields’ NFL debut a living nightmare last week. They chased him all over the field and sacked him nine times for losses of 67 yards. The Lions got to Baltimore QB Lamar Jackson four times. However, they also allowed Jackson to rush seven times for 58 yards, an 8.3 yards-per-carry average.

Bears run game vs Lions defense: The Lions held Baltimore’s NFL-leading rushing attack to 116 yards. Chicago gained just 46 yards on the ground against Cleveland.

Chicago’s inept offense vs Detroit’s porous defense: The Bears are the No. 31 scoring offense in the NFL (13.3 points scored per game). The Lions are the NFL’s No. 31 scoring defense (31.7 points allowed per game).


5 Key Lions vs Bears Stats

95: Points surrendered by the Lions, tied for the highest total in the NFL. Can Chicago’s dreadful offense get on track against this pathetic defense?

9: Times that Bears QB Justin Fields was sacked by the Cleveland Browns in last Sunday’s 26-6 loss. The Lions sacked Baltimore QB Lamar Jackson four times.

68: Passing yards by Fields, the fewest by a player making their first NFL start since Nathan Peterman (66 yds) in Week 11, 2017. Rookie QBs are a combined 1-10 this season.

32.35: Detroit’s percentage of successful third-down conversions, which ranks 29th in the league.

317: Number of yards Chicago was out-gained by Cleveland in last week’s 26-6 loss.

Bears WR Allen Robinson, Over 52.5 Receiving Yards

Odds: -120 at DraftKings

It’s been a terrible start to the season for Robinson, with 10 catches for 86 yards. The Lions defense has a way of healing all that ails an opposing offense.

Lions vs Bears Weather Forecast

Last week, the Lions lost 19-17 when Baltimore’s Justin Tucker kicked an NFL-record 66-yard field goal on the last play of the game. In 1970, the Lions lost 19-17 when New Orleans’ Tom Dempsey booted an NFL-record 63-yard field goal on the last play of the game. With rain, 9 mph wind and a temperature of 64 degrees set for Sunday at Soldier Field, at least the Lions won’t have to worry about that happening again.


Lions vs Bears Moneyline

The Lions were one play away from winning last week. According to NFL.com’s Next Generation Stats, Tucker had a 10.4% probability of making the kick. You’d never find as sure a bet as that in any NFL picks. And yet, Tucker made the kick. This, any long-suffering Lions fan will tell you, is the fate you tempt when you make a play on Detroit on the moneyline through any NFL betting apps.

Chicago is a -145 favorite, Detroit is the +125 underdog. After last week’s Bears debacle, betting the Lions seems the play here. But don’t say we didn’t warn you. You can get the Lions +125 at BetMGM .

Lions vs Bears Point Spread

When it comes to the NFL spreads, the Lions are actually a winning team. They are 2-1 ATS this season. The Bears, on the other hand, are 1-2.

The opening line on this game at sportsbooks was Bears -6. After digesting Chicago’s Fields of nightmares, oddsmakers at betting sites shortened it to Chicago -3.

The Lions are 21-107 in their last 128 games as an away underdog. On the other hand, the Bears have covered in just three of the past 11 games in which they were a betting favorite. We’ll go with the Lions to at least keep in close enough to cover.

Lions vs Bears Totals

This game is featuring the No. 31 (Chicago) and No. 22 (Detroit) scoring offenses in the NFL. However, it’s also putting on the field the league’s No. 31 (Detroit) and No. 19 (Chicago) scoring defenses. It’s just as easy to make a reasonable case to bet the over as it is the under.

The under was the winning play in 15 of the Bears’ last 20 home games. The over was the winning play in nine of Detroit’s last 13 games. The total bar is set at just 42.5 points. These two teams have gone over that number in each of the last three times they’ve played each other. Go with the over at O42 (-108) with FanDuel .
