Lions vs. Bears 2013 odds: Lions open as road favorites

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The Lions are favored by only 3.5 points to beat the Bears at home.

The Chicago Bears host the Detroit Lions in a huge NFC North showdown in Week 10. Vegas is predicting a close match -- according to Oddsshark, the Lions are favored by 3.5 points on the road.

The Lions got a week off after a dramatic last-second win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 8. Detroit beat Dallas, 31-30, but failed to cover the minus-3 point spread. The Lions move into first place in the division at 5-3, and are now 4-4 against the spread.

The Bears scored a huge divisional win over the Green Bay Packers on Monday night. Playing without Jay Cutler or Lance Briggs, the Bears beat the Packers in Lambeau, 27-20. They were massive 9.5-point underdogs and made some bold gamblers rich by beating that spread. Chicago is now 5-3 in the standings, but just 2-5-1 against the spread. Cutler is tentatively expected to return against Detroit.
