4 units on Detroit PICK () (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: WIN

The Chicago Bears are a certainly a pleasant surprise sitting atop the NFC North with an 8-3 mark. But, the Detroit Lions are also a surprise at 7-4 ATS for the season. The Lions imploded once again on Thanksgiving, but have more than held their own at home this season losing by just 3 points to Philadelphia, by 3 to the Jets in overtime and beating the Rams and Redskins by a combined 50 points. This is certainly a team that has proven to be a tough out at home, where they are 4-1 ATS on the year. The Bears, off a big win at home to Philly, could be hibernating this week. They host New England next week, and might find themselves in a Lion's sandwich here. The Bears tend to fall asleep after allowing 250+ in the air in their previous game, where they are 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 such games. The Lions bounce back big time after a double-digit home loss at 5-0 ATS in their last five. The Dog has barked loud in this series at 16-7 ATS in the last 23. Finally, the Lions are 14-4 ATS in their last 18 games following a home blowout loss by 21+ points. They have had a week and a half to prepare and should be ready to make ammends. I like Detroit here, even with Drew Stanton under center.
