This mightn’t be the most exciting game on paper, but the stage is set for a potential thriller based on what we saw from the Lions and Bears last week.

Detroit was super unlucky to lose on Justin Tucker’s record-breaking field goal, while the Bears will be hoping for a much better day on offence after Justin Fields threw for less than 70-yards in his debut.

Matt Nagy hasn’t confirmed whether Fields or Nick Foles will be starting under centre this week, which has left the Bears as slim -2.5 favourites at home.

It’s hard to say which one of those two options is the better one, but from a betting perspective, it does make the Lions a very intriguing play as the road dog.

Detroit won’t win many games this year, but they’ve had some convincing stretches against two legitimate Super Bowl contenders in Green Bay and Baltimore over the last fortnight.

Verdict

Jared Goff needs to take care of the football against Chicago’s fierce pass rush, but when you consider the Lions won at Soldier Field last year, there’s a good chance they keep this close.
