"The lowest handle game at our books is the Lions and the Bears," CG Technology oddsmaker Dave Sharapan told me on Early Odds.
That's on an NFL slate that includes Cardinals-Bucs, Bills-Browns and Giants-Jets games.
If you care, the Bears are 2.5-point home favorites, and the total has dipped to 41.5. It would take some serious dough to get below the key number of 41.
Let's get to my picks of the week.
The Bears have scored more than 22.5 points in only two of their eight games. Both contests included a defensive or special teams touchdown.
The Bears should try to attack the Lions with their run game to keep Matthew Stafford off the field without putting the contest in Trubisky’s hands. Stafford is on pace for a 38-touchdown, 5,000-yard season.
Montgomery has been on the field for a season-high 73 percent of offensive snaps in each of the last two weeks. The Lions have been gashed for at least 166 rushing yards in three of their last four games. This prop should be set in the high 50s.
