Bears vs Lions Pick, Prediction

Action Network NFL betting expert Brandon Anderson offers this prediction:

Fields had a slow start to this season as a runner, with only four rushing attempts in two of his first four games. He looked hesitant to take off and scramble, and Luke Getsy wasn't calling him many designed runs. That changed in his past two games, with 19 carries for 113 yards in a game and a half, and we can probably expect more Fields running going forward now that this offense found its rhythm with him.

Chicago's run blocking has been fantastic, and the Bears can run in this game. Fields terrorized the Lions' defense last year, running for 147 and 132 yards in two meetings and busting a long one in both. He's run for at least 46 yards in four of six games this season and in 16 of the past 19 dating back to last season (84%). That's a heck of a floor and it means this line is probably too low.

Pick: Justin Fields Over 48.5 Rushing Yards (-110)
