    The Lions (+7) are getting too many points @ New England

    This line seems inflated. Probably because the Patriots seem unbeatable at the moment and the Lions haven't been so impressive of late.

    I think Detroit's front 7 will give New England trouble on Sunday and the Lions should have a good chance to win this game.


    Lions +7 is an obvious bet but the ML has great value if you ask me.

    Line looks right to me. Detroit is still very hard to trust on the road.

    This game is intriguing. A great O against a great D. Myself, I like NE. Brady won't get shut down, if he just puts up 20 points they'll cover IMO.

    Yes they will have the A/C on in New England. They are predicting power outages.

    Here is a stat for all you "sharps". Stafford in his career is 1-15 against teams with a winning record on the road, I like the kid he is tough but the Lions organization has had immense talent for years. They are just born losers, one of the worst road teams in the league for YEARS coming into one of the top 3/4 toughest places to play in the league and considering W/L record it is statistically the toughest. 7 is a big number I don't think it's a bad play to consider taking the 7, even though there are better bets on the board, but I would rather tease the pats with Zona, Balt, Denver St Louis Etc. Stanton drove up and down the field on this team threw for 306 and a couple bad INTs kept the score artificially low. The pass D numbers are super inflated due to mediocre opponents outside of the week 1 fluke against GB

    Anyone who puts a $ on the Detroit Money Line is a dope, or praying for a miracle so everyone thinks they are a "sharp"


    Also, Gillette went from grass to turf mid season back in 06

    Ml value I guess but to me it's loss value because the pats aren't losing at home to this team. Detroit is not strong enough as a team on the road to win a game in new england

    The Lions are a complete fukkin disaster as a unit and Matthew Stafford as an individual NFL Quarterback a particularly completely incapable fukkin disaster versus teams with winning records when they are on the road. The only way they stay within the number on this one is if the Powers That Be within Beantown want them to so watch the numbers, if betting is lethargic on NE jump, if the moneys on NE they'll cover.

    No chance of them winning straight up but +7 is not a bad bet.

    Stafford on the road sucks and so does that offense. Its pretty much trusting the defense to contain NE

    Pats 51-3 last 54 games at home when Brady starts. Outscoring opponents average 41-21 last 6 games. Detroit averaging 15 ppg on road this season.

    SBR claims sharps on Detroit points and ML.

    Can't make this shit up.

    The problem with this game is that the lions have a tough time beating the tier 1 teams. Going back to the last 30+ games or so, Stafford is like 3-29 or something against winning teams. Obv there are flaws in those numbers (i.e. they beat the packers this year, but packers weren't a winning team when they beat them).

    But it's still hard to ignore. The Lions really struggle against balanced high-powered offenses like the Pats. I think the +7 might be okay. Lions do have the best defense in the NFL imo. They are ball hawks and they are ball hungry. But New England's defense is no joke either. Brady is almost impossible to beat at home, and if the Lions are going to win this game, I don't see any other way than Calvin Johnson torching Revis. Brady will have his solid 2-3 td game, Lions will bottle up the running game, Pats may score like 21ish points. So Lions are gonna have to score like 24 to win this game imo. Could happen I guess.

    It'd be nice if we got the win, I just don't know if we can beat the Pats on the road. I think the Pats win this game like 21 - 17

    The Pat's surface is "field turf" and the temps in Foxborough are expected to be in the mid 50's. FYI.
