Chicago vs Detroit Free Week 6 Preview & Pick

Bet On NFL Football – Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions Gambling Preview

The Bears got back to winning last week, taking a close one against rookie sensation Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers.  It was somewhat of a stunning result given they were beaten big time in the stats.

The only areas where they really outperformed Carolina was in the return game where Devin Hester burned the Panthers with a 69 yard punt return.  How anyone kicks to him is the league’s biggest mystery.

Chicago might have figured an airtight way to win games…don’t let QB Jay Cutler throw the ball.  Last week the Bears attempted only 18 passes as Cutler threw for just 102 yards.  He simply wasn’t required to do much at Matt Forte rushed for more than 200 yards.  He is having a monster of a season leading the team in both rushing and receiving yards.

While the running game may have been revived Chicago has to be worried about how Carolina shredded them on defense.  Cam Newton threw for 374 yards and they gave up 162 yards on just 26 carries. Detroit has an even more potent attack which should be very worrisome for coach Lovie Smith.  What happened to the defense.  It is getting old fast and when Julius Peppers doesn’t perform they get nothing done.


Detroit definitely has the look of a team of destiny after last week’s comeback win at Dallas.  People want to hang it all on the Cowboys QB for imploding but give the Lions some credit – I mean how may times do you see guys drop interceptions that could have been big plays. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

 The Lions made the plays that were there to be made and have all season.  That is why they are a perfect 4-0.

Yes the Lions were helped out by Tony Romo last week but it was still a very impressive comeback.  The amazing thing about this coach/team is that they don’t give up and have patience.  Even though they were way down they didn’t seem in a hurry to get it all back on one play.  This team still has room to improve and they might be getting top pick defensive tackle Nick Fairley into the lineup this weekend.

This is the first of three straight home games for Detroit, a chance to really lengthen their current unbeaten streak.  Looking at their schedule it is not inconceivable that they might still be undefeated for the first of two divisional games against Green Bay in the latter half of the season.  If they can get by Chicago, a team they haven’t beaten in their last 6 tries.

ATS Pick:  Detroit – 5
Over/Under Pick:  Under
Score Prediction:  Detroit 28 – Chicago 14
