Last year: CHICAGO (-3) over Detroit, 37-13; DETROIT (-5) over Chicago, 24-13. The Bears put up 41 at Jacksonville, 34 at Dallas and 41 to open the season at home vs. Indianapolis. They also have an opportunistic defense that shuts down the run (65.8 yds/game allowed). That won’t matter for Detroit, who can’t run the ball anyway. But they can pass it as they average 320 yards per game in the air. The Bears should put up 30+ on their mediocre defense, which allows 228 yard per game in the air.
