The Bears offense has benefited from improved pass-protection and a Lions defense that ranks 26th in points allowed should help stars Jay Cutler, Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall have a field day. Detroit has some playmakers on defense in Ndamukong Suh, Cliff Avril and Louis Delmas but the rest of the D are “just guys.” The Detroit Lions vs Chicago Bears Odds MNF Total is at 46.5 points.
