The pros in Vegas are betting the Lions hard against the Bears tonight.
As much buzz as the Lions are getting, this is actually a surprise.
The public has been hammering the Lions all year long, so you’d expect the betting pros to jump all over the Bears at an inflated number of +6 points.
In addition, Detroit hasn’t exactly been dominating people this year. The Lions took advantage of awful second-half collapses against Dallas and Minnesota for two of their four wins. And yeah they crushed the Chiefs in week two, but they’re the Chiefs.
So the fact that the wise guys are still betting the Lions shows that Vegas is REALLY down on the Bears.
It also doesn’t hurt that Detroit is 8-0-1 against the spread in their last nine games.
The line opened at Lions -6, but it’s moved to Lions -7.5 in the past few hours.
Our take (for what it’s worth): the Lions are really overvalued, we’d hammer the Bears if you could get them at +7.5.
