Lions vs. Bears Free Pick
NFC North rivals will wrap up their 2015 seasons today at Solider Field when the Bears host Jim Caldwell and the Lions at 1:00PM ET.
After Chicago opened as a 1.5-point home favorite, the game today has dropped to a pick'em according to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag. As for the total, it opened at 45 and that's where the number currently sits.
The Lions enter play today with a 6-9 record and are also 6-9 against the spread, while the Bears are also 6-9 straight up but 8-7 at the betting window. Sixty-four percent of public bettors are currently backing Detroit at the betting window today.
For whatever reason, the Bears have been a poor home bet this season. In their seven games played at Solider Field this year, the Bears are 2-5 against the spread and have lost by an average margin of -6.4 points. They've also failed to cover the number by a -5.8 margin at home as well.
After scoring just 14 points against a stout Rams defense three weeks ago, the Lions racked up 35 and 32 points against the Saints and 49ers, respectively, the past two weeks. With the Bears allowing an average of 24.9 points per game this season, the Lions should find the end zone again plenty today and find a way to finish the season with a victory.
