PICK 1: Bears -1

Mitchell Trubisky hasn’t had many good games this year, but one of the better ones was against the Lions a few weeks ago, when he threw for three TDs and no INTs (the only time he’s done that) in a 20-13 win.

Detroit’s defense has actually gotten worse and the Lions’ offense led by Jeff Driskel and Bo Scarbrough isn’t going to scare Chicago.

Can Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky duplicate his three-touchdown, no-interception performance from an earlier 20-13 win over the Lions?

PICK 2: Under 39 Points

The Under has hit in the last five Bears games, and even the ones that hit Over aren’t that high scoring with just one game totaling more than 46 points all season. These teams totaled 33 points just a few weeks ago and with Matthew Stafford still on the shelf, it should be another low-scoring affair.

PICK 3: First Quarter Result — Tie

Over the last three weeks, the Bears have allowed three first-quarter points — and scored none. The Lions have outscored their opponents 9-6 over the last three weeks. Neither team gets much going early on, so let’s take the big odds on a stalemate after 15 minutes.

PICK 4: Second Half 1st TD — Bears

The Bears have been a terrible first-half team, but for whatever reason the offense has come to life right after the break. Over the last three weeks, Chicago has scored 10 points in the first half but has outscored the competition 36-0 in the third quarter.

Lions quarterback Jeff Driskel struggled Sunday against the Redskins in a 19-16 loss, throwing three interceptions.

PICK 5: First Half/Final Result — Bears/Bears

With two poor first-half teams facing off, it’s going to be close at the break. The Bears should pull away in the second half. The odds are good enough to back a slim Chicago lead at halftime and go from there.
