Detroit Lions vs Chicago Bears Odds

  • Opening point spread: Lions -4.5
  • Opening moneyline: Lions -180/Bears +150
  • Opening total: Over/Under 42.5 points scored
  • Time: 1 p.m. ET Sunday (FOX)

UPDATE 10 A.M. ET SUNDAY: Three hours from game time, the Lions are at -3 (-120) in Caesars' NFL odds Week 14 market. Detroit opened -4.5 last Sunday and quickly went to -4, then dipped to -3.5/-3 (-120) Monday. Friday brought a brief return to Lions -3.5, before the line returned to -3 flat, then to -3 (-120) Saturday.

Spread tickets are running 4/1 on the Lions, but spread money is 2/1 on the underdog Bears.

UPDATE 2 P.M. ET FRIDAY: The Lions hit BetMGM's board at -4 (-115) Sunday night. Detroit bottomed out at -3 on Monday and Tuesday, at various juice, and has been stable at -3.5 (even) since Wednesday.

The Lions are landing 57% of early spread bets/65% of early spread money. And while those percentages aren't overwhelming, Detroit is No. 1 in spread tickets and spread money in BetMGM's NFL odds Week 14 market.

In fact, by ticket count, Lions-Bears is the most-bet NFL game this week at BetMGM.

The total opened at 45.5 and plummeted all the way to 40 by Tuesday. But by mid-Wednesday afternoon, the number rebounded to 44, and it's now at 43. Still, 69% of bets/71% of dollars are on the Under.

UPDATE 10 P.M. ET SUNDAY: Detroit (9-3 SU/8-4 ATS) busted out to a 21-0 lead at New Orleans and was up 24-7 at halftime. But the Lions, laying 4 points, ultimately had to hang on for a 33-28 win and cover.

Chicago (4-8 SU/5-6-1 ATS) won one the ugliest games of the 2023 season in Week 12. The Bears were 3-point underdogs at Minnesota and won 12-10 on a field goal in the waning seconds. Chicago had a bye in Week 13.

The SuperBook opened Lions-Bears at Detroit -4.5 and moved to -4 tonight. The total is much more on the move, leaping from 42.5 to 45 in less than two hours. There were stops all along the way, at 43/43.5/44/44.5.

Lions vs Bears Pick, Prediction

Action Network NFL betting expert Brandon Anderson offers this prediction:

The Bears took a lot of heat for paying so much for Montez Sweat at the trade deadline, but Chicago's defense has been trending up in a huge way and ranks sixth in DVOA over the past five weeks. Chicago is stopping the run well, and the Bears can keep this Lions attack somewhat in check, especially considering how much Jared Goff tends to struggle outdoors in what could still be negative conditions.

This is not a game where the Lions will be expected to hang a big number, so the defense will have to bounce back and contain a lackluster Bears offense. In division games Week 14 or later, trends look under for games played outdoors (62% to the under) with a total between 40 and 47 (56%), or where the home team's under rate is at least 80% on the season (60%).

Be grateful for the uptick on the total, grab the best under you can find, and hope the wind comes back around to muck things up further.

Pick: Under 43.5
