Here is a breakdown of our best Detroit Lions bets for Week 14 against the Chicago Bears.

As usual, before unveiling this week's best Detroit Lions' bets, let's see how Week 13's bets did.

WR Jameson Williams, Longest Reception Over 15.5 yards (-114, FanDuel): 11-yard catch
RB David Montgomery, Over 14.5 Rush Attempts (+105, Draft Kings): 18 carries
QB Jared Goff, Under 34.5 pass attempts (-105, DraftKings; -122 FanDuel): 25 pass attempts

Two out of three is solid, and step up from Week 12's 0-for-3 on the best bets. But Week 14 brings new and clean betting slips, as the Lions travel to take on the Chicago Bears. The Lions rallied to beat the Bears 31-26 back in Week 11, as Jared Goff threw three interceptions but led the fourth quarter comeback.

The Lions are narrow favorites, three points as of the most recent check, as the Bears played better before their Week 13 bye and the Lions have shown some holes lately.

Via the sportsbook(s) noted, here are our three best Lions bets for Week 14.

3 best Detroit Lions bets for Week 14 at Chicago Bears

RB Jahmyr Gibbs, Over 3.5 receptions (-122, FanDuel; -130, DraftKings)

Gibbs had his lowest touch/opportunity total since Week 1 in Week 13, but this week feels like it will be more of a "Gibbs game" as offensive coordinator Ben Johnson finds areas of the Bears' defense to exploit.

Chicago is allowing 6.1 receptions (third-most in the league), 7.5 targets (third-most in the league) and 59.4 receiving yards (most in the league) per game to opposing running backs this season, with five receiving touchdowns allowed to the position (tied for second-most in the league). Against them in Week 11, Gibbs had six catches for 59 yards.

Over on 3.5 catches for Gibbs, with weather likely fostering shorter passes from Goff, is easy pickings.

Gibbs, 40-plus Receiving Yards (+178, FanDuel; +165, DraftKings)

In line with the over on 3.5 catches for Gibbs against the Bears, 40-plus receiving yards is an easy follow-up/parlay (the parlay is +169 on FanDuel Sportsbook). If you wanted to get a little friskier, 50-plus receiving yards for Gibbs is +300 on FanDuel and +290 on DraftKings.

TE Sam LaPorta, Anytime touchdown (+165, FanDuel; +175, DraftKings)

LaPorta is setting some kind of historical mark for a Lions' rookie tight end seemingly on a weekly basis, and he is one shy of the franchise touchdown record for a rookie tight end. He didn't have a great game against the Bears in Week 11, with three catches for 18 yards on five targets, but Chicago has allowed a touchdown to a tight end in three of their last five games.

If wind is a factor on Sunday, LaPorta should see a lot of targets from Goff. Any anytime touchdown bet at this kind of plus-money is impossible to turn down.
