The Atlanta Falcons hope to move one step closer to the Super Bowl in Saturday night NFL betting action, as they take on the Detroit Lions at Ford Field.
Detroit’s brief run at a return trip to the playoffs this season came to an end with a current four-game losing streak that dropped its overall record to 4-8 straight-up and 5-7 against the spread. Give credit to the Lions for keeping things close against Houston and Indianapolis the past two weeks, but this team has forgotten how to close-out games to get the win.
The Indianapolis Colts have played inspired football all year, and they are accomplishing things that most thought was out of the realm of possibilities for the team this season. Detroit has been one of the biggest disappointments in the NFL. The Lions sit at 4-7, and they cannot afford any more losses if they want to have any chance at making the playoffs. Indianapolis needs this game for playoff positioning as well.
Thanksgiving Day football betting action kicks off on Thursday from Motown, where the Detroit Lions will play host to the Houston Texans.
The Texans have embarked on a ton of firsts over the course of the last year or so, and this time around, they are going to be playing for the first time ever on Thanksgiving Day.
Do not look now but the Green Bay Packers have worked their way back into the NFC playoff picture after an unexpected slow start. They have won four straight games to improve to 6-3 straight-up on the year but they are still under .500 against the spread at 4-5. The total has gone OVER in six of their nine games.
The battle on the NFL odds in the NFC North will be hot and heavy on Sunday afternoon at the Metrodome, where the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions battle it out for playoff positioning.
The Vikings are really falling from grace and have been over the course of the last several weeks. They were beaten by the Seattle Seahawks last week 30-20 on the road, which knocked them to the wrong side of the playoff picture for the first time all year long.
The last two teams of the week to kick it off on Monday Night Football betting action this week are the Chicago Bears and the Detroit Lions. Check out some of the NFL prop bets that are available at BetDSI, as we analyze the betting lines and see which sides to play.
Mikel Leshoure Under 62.5 Rushing Yards (-115): If you can figure out how the rushing attack works for the Lions, please let us know. It seems as though RB Joique Bell has been stealing some carries of late, and we never know when RB Kevin Smith might get back in the fold as well as a third down type of back.
Detroit may have saved its season with last Sunday’s 26-23 dramatic come-from-behind overtime victory over Philadelphia as a 3.5-point road underdog, but it can get back in the thick of the NFC North race with a win on Monday night. The Lions are 2-3 straight-up on the year and 1-4 against the spread. The total has gone OVER in two of their last three games.
Despite the fourth-quarter heroics of quarterback Matthew Stafford, Detroit still has issues with consistently putting points on the board.
The Detroit Lions have been one of the biggest disappointments in the NFL so far this year. Philadelphia is off to a better start than last year, but the Eagles still have a lot of room for improvement. Big things are expected from both of these teams. The Eagles look to bounce back from a rough loss at Pittsburgh last week, while the Lions had a bye week last weekend. Let’s take a closer look at this one.
NFC North foes battle it out in what is becoming one of the most intriguing games of the week in NFL betting action, as the Detroit Lions will fight it out with the Minnesota Vikings.
Sure, we’re only a few games into the season, but the Vikings all of a sudden might find themselves in the thick of the playoff race, especially if they can figure out how to win this game. Taking QB Christian Ponder in the first round of the NFL Draft was considered a massive reach, but perhaps Minnesota knew what it was doing.
