NFC North rivals meet head-to-head in Week 10 NFL action as the Detroit Lions visit the Chicago Bears. The Lions are coming off an exciting 15-9 win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Detroit put on a defensive clinic as safety Kerby Joseph led the way with his first 2 interceptions of the year.

Meanwhile, the Bears couldn't buy a stop on defense and fell to the Miami Dolphins by a score of 35-32 in Week 9. Quarterback Justin Fields continued his rapid improvement, though. The second-year pro tallied a ridiculous 178 rushing yards to go along with 123 passing yards and 4 total touchdowns.

Lions vs Bears Prediction & Pick

It certainly seems like the Bears have figured out how to take advantage of Fields' athleticism as a dual-threat QB. Chicago has scored at least 29 points in each of its last three games and draws a wonderful matchup in Week 10. Detroit is allowing a whopping 29.3 points per game (No. 32 in NFL).

It's hard to imagine Jared Goff being able to keep up with Fields on Sunday. The veteran signal-caller has only thrown 3 touchdowns compared to 4 interceptions over his last four games. The Bears are 7-1 straight up in their last eight games against the Lions and I expect that success to continue.

Final Score Prediction: Lions: 24 | Bears: 31

Lions vs Bears Best Bet

Everything about this game screams shootout. The Lions and Bears each rank outside the top 25 teams in total DVOA rating as well as yards allowed per carry. Meanwhile, they each rank among the top 10 teams in yards per carry. Expect one big gain on the ground after another in this showdown.

Both Chicago and Detroit also rank outside the top 20 teams in opponent red zone scoring percentage. Overall, the over has cashed in seven of Detroit's last 10 games and it has also cashed in four of Chicago's last five games. Bettors can feel comfortable backing the over again in Week 10.

Bet: Over 48.5 Points (-110)
