The Detroit Lions enter this game as one of the undefeated teams in the NFL after their tie against the Arizona Cardinals and upset win against the Los Angeles Chargers. Even though the Lions have been hit and miss in some drives this season, Vegas is giving them way too much against a team that is injured and has looked flat all season long. The Lions are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the Eagles have only covered in three of the past 14 games then they are favored over three points. As stated above, these injured Eagles come in with Alshon Jeffery and Desean Jackson questionable for this game. The Eagles have looked sloppy all season long and even if they win this game, the Lions will have a nice backdoor cover. Sharp action has moved this line right below a touchdown, but buying that half-point will make this easily a touchdown cover.
Over Under Pick
The Detroit Lions have sharpened up their defense and it showed in their games against the Cardinals and Chargers. They have been creating turnovers while Wentz and the Philly offense is not looking to sharp either. Along with the Eagles defense stepping up against Matt Ryan on Sunday Night Football, expect this game to be sloppy and slow. The Under is 8-1 in Lions last 9 games as well as 6-1 in the Lions’ last 7 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game. The Eagles will struggle with a new offensive layout as the Lions use the ground-and-pound to chip away at the Eagles. Under is a nice play here.
