It may seem strange seeing the Detroit Lions favored by a touchdown on Thanksgiving over the Chicago Bears given that the Lions have looked terrible while not scoring a touchdown in back-to-back losses while the Bears come off of back-to-back wins. However, those two Detroit losses both came on the road to the teams with the two best records in the NFL in Arizona and New England, while the two Chicago wins both came at home vs. a couple of lightweights in Minnesota and Tampa Bay with neither win being impressive as both opponents had chances to tie those games and force overtimes on their final possessions. The Lions now return home to their indoor turf where they are 4-1 straight up and 3-1-1 ATS and Matthew Stafford should have a field day vs. Chicago’s 28th ranked passing defense. The Bears are 10-21-1 ATS in their last 32 games overall.
Pick: Lions -7
