The Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions clash Sunday in week 10 NFL action at Soldier Field. The Detroit Lions look to rebound from a 2-6 start. The Chicago Bears need a win after losing 5 of their last 6 games.

The Detroit Lions haven’t won a road game since December 2020. Jared Goff is completing 62.9 percent of his passes for 2,041 yards, 14 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Amon-Ra St. Brown and Josh Reynolds have combined for 756 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns, while Kalif Raymond has 20 receptions. The Detroit Lions ground game is averaging 134.1 yards per contest, and Jamaal Williams leads the way with 545 yards and 8 touchdowns. Defensively, Detroit is allowing 29.3 points and 417.3 yards per game. Alex Anzalone leads the Detroit Lions with 62 tackles, Aidan Hutchinson has 4.5 sacks and Kerby Joseph has 2 interceptions.

The Chicago Bears have split their last 4 home games. Justin Fields is completing 58.8 percent of his passes for 1,322 yards, 10 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. Darnell Mooney and Cole Kmet have combined for 607 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Dante Pettis has 11 receptions. The Chicago Bears ground game is averaging 195.4 yards per contest, and Fields leads the way with 602 yards and 4 touchdowns. Defensively, Chicago is allowing 24 points and 347.9 yards per game. Eddie Jackson leads the Chicago Bears with 65 tackles, Jaquan Brisker has 3 sacks and Kindle Vildor has 1 interception.

The Lions are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in November and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Bears are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 vs. NFC. The over is 7-3 in Lions last 10 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Bears last 5 games overall. The Lions are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Chicago. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

I'm not excited to lay chalk with the Chicago Bears, but their offense has come along these last few weeks, and it looks like things are starting to click for Fields. That's good news for the Bears when going up against a Lions defense that's 32nd in total defense and 32nd in scoring defense. The Lions are the worst defense in the league. I have no choice but to lay the reasonable number with the Bears at home.
