Bears odds: Chicago opens as favorite vs. Lions in Week 10

The Chicago Bears (3-6) will battle the Detroit Lions (2-6) on Sunday, and Chicago is looking to snap a two-game losing streak as they welcome their NFC North foes to Soldier Field.

Even with the Bears coming off a 35-32 loss to the Miami Dolphins, oddsmakers feel confident about Chicago’s chances at home against the Lions.

The Bears have opened as three-point home favorites against the Lions in Week 10, according to Tipico Sportsbook. The over/under is set at 48.5.

That surely has a lot to do with the emergence of quarterback Justin Fields, who had his coming-out party with a record-setting performance against Miami. Fields accounted for 301 yards and four touchdowns, including rushing for 178 yards — a regular-season NFL record for a quarterback.

This is just the third time this season that Chicago has been favored (previously against the Houston Texans in Week 3 and the Washington Commanders in Week 6).

They were underdogs against the San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys.
