Thanksgiving football kicks off where it often does, in Detroit! As the winless Lions host their divisional rivals Chicago Bears, in the first of three NFL games. Will Detroit win their first game of the season, or will David Montgomery run all over the Lions again to help the Bears get back to winning ways? 

Aforementioned, Bears RB David Montgomery has been Chicago’s best offensive weapon when healthy this season. The former Iowa State ball-carrier has 3 TDs in the 6 games he’s played this season and now faces a Detroit Lions side who two-thirds of those scores came against. Detroit allowed Monty to rush for 106 yards and 2 TDs in the first meeting between the teams, and with Montgomery having scored 5 TDs in his 5 career games vs Detroit, we like him to score at least one TD against a Lions defense which has allowed 17 TDs to opposition RBs already this season. 

Spread: Bears -3.0

Total: 41.5

Game Prediction: Bears 24-20 Lions

Best Bet: David Montgomery to score a brace @ 7/2 with Betfair. [0.5]
