The Detroit Lions will travel to Chicago to play a very important game against the Bears on Monday Night Football Next week.

Coming off a come from behind victory in Philadelphia a week ago, the Lions look to keep that momentum going as they dig out of a disappointing 1-3 hole. The Chicago Bears have looked like the class of the NFC North through the first six weeks of the season and a win would help solidify their place atop the standings.

The early betting line has installed the Bears as six point favorites over the visiting Lions. The teams split their two meetings a year ago with the Lions winning by 11 at home in week five and the Bears winning by 24 in Chicago five weeks later.

The early feel seems like anything from a close Lions win to a big win by the Bears is within the realm of possibility. Would you take the six points and ride the Lions or give the points and look for a repeat of last year’s game in Chicago?
