1 unit on Game Total OVER 44 -105 (risk 1 to return 1.95) RESULT: WIN
Often maligned Bears QB Jay Cutler has done some really crafty work over the last few weeks, even as he nurses an ailing hamstring. His receiving corps has been dismantled by injuries, but he has found a way to lead the Bears back to two straight wins. Cutler seems to save his best work for the road, where his team averages 24 points per game, in his last 31 road starts. He has had problems vs. the Lions where he is 0-5 ATS in his last five starts against them, and the Bears have allowed 28.4 points per game in the five contests. Matthew Stafford has been on his game against the Bears especially at home as he has led the Lions to an average of 30.5 ppg in his last four against them with a passer rating of 99.5. The Bears have played to an 18-7 mark to the OVER in their last 25 on the road, and have been 22-7 to the OVER in their last 29 when following a win. The Lions are 10-3 to the OVER following a double-digit home loss in their last 13, and five of the last six in Detroit have eclipsed the total. This one finishes OVER.
