Detroit Lions vs Chicago Bears Same-Game Parlay: Dallas Defence Dominates DeVito
Amon-Ra St. Brown 75+ Receiving Yards
Detroit escaped California with the win last Sunday, but they sure left it late to make sure of it. Riley Patterson kicked the game-winner as time expired at SoFi Stadium, and now the Lions face back-to-back games against divisional rivals heading into Thanksgiving.
Chicago, now on extended rest, made ugly work of beating the Panthers and improved their chances of securing the number one overall draft pick via the trade they made with Carolina pre-draft.
The 16-13 victory was the second of undrafted free agent QB Tyson Bagent’s NFL career – a stellar return for the former Division II man – and now they’re able to welcome Justin Fields back to the fold following his extended time away with injury.
Fields adds an extra dimension to their offence with the use of his legs, and he’ll have to be on top form if he’s to keep up with a Detroit Lions offence that ranks as the 4th best in the league, per DVOA.
The Lions have surpassed 30 points four times so far this season, and 40 points twice, and dropped 41 on the Los Angeles Chargers last weekend – punting just once – without committing a turnover. A huge driver of their offensive success has been wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown, who has been ridiculously consistent so far this year.
The Sun God has 821 yards through eight games so far this year, and has passed 100 yards in six of his seven starts since Week 1 – including all four games he has started alongside Jameson Williams.
The deep threat opens up the field for St. Brown to do his thing over the middle, clearing out the safeties to give Amon-Ra room to operate between the lines.
Jahmyr Gibbs Over 24.5 Receiving Yards
Detroit’s last-gasp Week 10 win was powered massively by their ground game in the first half – with their one-two punch of David Montgomery and Jahmyr Gibbs combining for 177 yards and three touchdowns before the break.
Rookie Jahmyr Gibbs was a huge positive for Detroit in both the rushing and receiving game, and he’s been fantastic in his first half-season as an NFL back – especially as a receiver.
Gibbs ranks 7th amongst all running backs for receiving yards per game this year (28.6) and has surpassed this line in four of his seven starts, including each of his last three as he develops more trust with his quarterback and coaching staff.
In the Bears, he gets an extremely positive matchup as, even though Chicago ranks as the 2nd best defence for yards allowed to running backs, they are the worst defence in the league when it comes to receiving yards allowed to RBs.
Chicago allows 60.5 receiving yards per game to opposing running backs – a higher mark than they allow on the ground (59.3) – and has seen 11 opponents surpass this line through 10 games this year.
David Montgomery Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Gibbs’ backfield partner for most of this season has been Detroit’s RB1 David Montgomery, who has a storied history with today’s opponents after Chicago drafted him in the 3rd round back in 2019.
Montgomery spent four years as Chicago’s lead back but is now enjoying the best season of his career behind Detroit’s offensive line. RB1 has been running angry this year – ranking 12th for yards after contact and ninth for broken tackles, and his 75-yard touchdown run against the Chargers last week was a true showcase of his uptick in form.
It was his seventh score of the year, and the only game he’s started and hasn’t scored in was the one he left in the second quarter. He’s found the endzone in all five of the games he’s started and finished, including a three-touchdown showing against the Green Bay Packers in Week 4.
