Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions

The Chicago Bears (3-7 SU, 4-6 ATS) visit the Detroit Lions (0-9-1 SU, 6-4 ATS) in Thursday’s early game. Both teams have some uncertainty at quarterback, as Jared Goff is dealing with sore ribs and is questionable, while the Bears are likely to start Andy Dalton after rookie Justin Fields was injured in Sunday’s loss to the Ravens. If Goff can’t go, backup Tim Boyle likely will make his second career start. Boyle threw for just 77 yards Sunday at Cleveland. Despite their winless record, the Lions have been profitable for bettors at 6-4 ATS. The Bears are favored by 3.5, and the total is 41.5.

Las Vegas Raiders at Dallas Cowboys

The Las Vegas Raiders (5-5 SU, 4-6 ATS) visit the Dallas Cowboys (7-3 SU, 8-2 ATS) with the home team favored by 7. The Cowboys’ potent offense was held out of the end zone in Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs and might be without top wide receivers Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb. The Raiders were once 5-2 but have lost three straight in a season plagued with turmoil and controversy. Both teams are near the top of the league in averaging over 6 yards per play on offense. With uncertainty for Lamb and Cooper, the total has dropped from 54.5 to 51.

Buffalo Bills at New Orleans Saints

The Thursday slate wraps up with a pair of teams looking to bounce back from poor performances as the Buffalo Bills (6-4 SU, 5-5 ATS) visit the New Orleans Saints (5-5 SU and ATS). The Bills were the favorites to win the Super Bowl entering last week’s game against the Colts but got trounced 41-15 at home and are now behind the Patriots in the AFC East. The Saints are coming off consecutive losses, including last week against the Eagles, when they trailed 27-7 at halftime. Star running back Alvin Kamara has missed the last two games, and his status will be something to monitor. The Bills are favored by 4.5, and the total is 46.5.
