Detroit Lions vs New England Patriots Odds, Pick 1: Lions +3.0 @ -105 BetOnline
The Lions cover. The Patriots don’t cover and with question marks surrounding who will be New England’s QB on Sunday, we have to back Detroit.
Detroit currently has the best offense in football, and the Patriots defense isn’t what quite what it used to be. The Lions also need to have the best offense, as their defense is dead last in the NFL.
At the end of the day, the Patriots defense isn’t good enough to keep Detroit from outscoring New England. Detroit was missing their two best offensive players and still put 45 points on the board last week against Seattle. Take Detroit to cover.

Detroit is going to win this contest with or without offensive leaders De’Andre Swift and Amon-Ra-St. Brown. Pats QB Mac Jones missed last week and backup Brian Hoyer was terrible, so 3rd string rookie signal-caller Bailey Zappe took the reins and likely will start. This would be a shootout if New England had more talented receivers, but I expect a high scoring game and Detroit to leave Foxboro with a victory.

Detroit Lions games are an automatic over. Their defense is the worst in the league, but Detroit seems to be okay with it, as I’m sure the Patriots offense is good with it. The Lions have allowed 27 points or more in each of their last four games, and if the Patriots can’t rack up some points against this horrible defense, then who can they score on?
Expect Zappe to get comfortable real quick at home against a horrible Lions defense and Detroit will respond in kind, and before we know it, the game has exceeded the 45.5 point total.
