Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears – November 13th 2022

The Detroit Lions will play the Chicago Bears at the Soldiers Field Stadium, Chicago, on 13th November 2022. The two teams have played a total of 30 matches to date, out of which the Chicago Bears have won 17 while the Detroit Lions have won 13 games. 

For the season, the Bears and Lions are currently placed in 14th and 15th place in the NFL. So far, the Lions have won two matches and lost six in the season, and the Bears have won three and lost six games. While the Lions will try to improve their score, the Bears will strive to break their losing streak. The team has lost five of the six last games.

For the upcoming game, the home team is 2.5 point favourite, with -150 on the money line and the over/under set at 48.5 points. Here is a quick recap of the two teams’ performance and what we can expect from the game on Sunday. 

Detroit Lions Statistics

It has been two years since the Detroit Lions won a road game; the last win was in December 2020. The Lions have gone 4-4 against the spread in the season and have an overall record of 2-6. The team has been struggling throughout the season, but their win against the Green Bay Packers was a welcome relief and a much-needed morale booster for the team. The team conceded only 9 points and scored 15 in return. 

On average, the team has scored 23.5 points per game, while the defence has surrendered 29.3 points per game, putting them in 32nd place in the NFL in terms of defence. The team’s offence had been performing well in the beginning, but of late, the performance has not been as strong. The Lions are currently ranked 12th in the league in terms of offence. 

Chicago Bears Statistics

Facing the Lions will be the home team that has gone 4-4-1 against the spread and sits with a score of 3-6 in the season. In their last game played against the Miami Dolphins on 6th November, the team’s offence scored a total of 32 points, but the opponents scored 35 points. 

The Bears have been struggling in the previous games and seem to be in trouble, but if they manage to win in the coming games, they can be back on track for the race to the playoffs. So far, the Bears have scored an average of 20.8 points per game, placing them in the 21st place in the league in terms of offence. The defence has surrendered an average of 24 points per game, putting the team at 21st in the league in this aspect.

Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears Prediction

Although the Chicago Bears have been struggling for most parts of the season, the team’s offence has picked up an obvious pace in the past few runs. It will be an exciting game if the Lions return to their form from the first few games to give the Bears a run for their money. The team had a great going in the first half of their games against the Dolphins two weeks ago but has gone downhill since, and we saw the Lions struggling in their week 5 game against the Patriots.

So, if the recent stats hold, it is highly likely that the home team will also be winning this one.
