After Mitch Trubisky recovered from his hip injury, the Bears improved their standing to 5-6. However, they fell 3-8 against the spread when they failed to cover -6 in their win against the NY Giants. Will this be the same outcome in the Bears vs Lions match?
On the other hand, Detroit suffered an upset in their last game against the Redskins. Jeff Driskel’s pass was intercepted with less than 20 seconds in the game to give the Redskins a good field position. As a result, Washington scored a field goal and gave the Lions a heartbreaking defeat.
