The Lions Team Preview

  • I would have never thought that The Lions would only be two wins away from winning their first Super Bowl in team history! But this is going to be a very tough game for them to get past tonight! We just seen the Lions struggle in their last game against the Buccaneers, it took 14 points in the 4th quarter to get that win, but it was enough to get the 31-23 dub. Jared Goff had a big game, completing 30 of his 33 passes for 287 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Armon-Ra St. Brown is a mismatch and he finished with eight catches for 77 yards and a touchdown. This Lions offense is good, and Goff is going to need to have another big game here if they want to find a way to win tonight. Sam LaPorta is dealing with a knee injury but all signs are point towards him playing in this game. This Lions team needs to play almost a perfect game in order to win here, they have surprised us all year so far, can they do it again tonight!?

Lions Betting Trends

  • The Lions have won each of their last seven road games following a home win.

  • The Lions have covered the spread in nine of their last 10 games as underdogs against NFC opponents.

  • The Lions have scored the first touchdown in each of their last five games as underdogs following a home win.

  • The Lions have won the first quarter in four of their last six Sunday games against teams that held a winning record.

  • The Lions have won the first half in seven of their last eight Sunday games.

  • I do think we should have a little concern about Brock Purdy coming into this game tonight. To be honest, Purdy wasn’t exactly elite in the last game, but the 49ers were still able to overcome what he did to come away with a win. The 49ers played the Green Bay Packers in their last game and they were able to muscle up the 24-21 dub luckily! Brock Purdy completed 15 of his 29 passes for 252 yards and a touchdown. Christian McCaffrey did have a strong game finishing with 17 carries for 98 yards and two touchdowns. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel is dealing with a shoulder injury and he’s questionable for this game. In this game, the 49ers defense is going to need to step up and Purdy needs to have a much better game then he did in his last game, the lions might not let them get away with any mistakes in this game!

49ers Betting Trends

  • The 49ers have won each of their last nine games at Levi's Stadium following a home win.

  • The 49ers have covered the spread in each of their last nine games at Levi's Stadium following a home win.

  • The 49ers have won the first half in each of their last eight home games against NFC opponents.

  • The 49ers have scored the first touchdown in each of their last seven games as home favorites against NFC opponents.

  • The 49ers have won the first quarter in each of their last nine home games following a home win.

  • I know a lot of people will not agree with this prediction on the Lions tonight but I have to stick with my opinions and how I handicap games. I really think the Lions are getting too many points, and this is a game I believe the Lions can win outright. The Lions offense looked really good in their last game and Jared Goff has impressed this year, and I wouldn't be shocked if he has another big game here. Purdy had some issues in the last game, and I expect he’s going to have some issues again in the spot light with all this pressure and expectations on him! We seen Purdy out there missing some easy throws and he looked stressed out honestly. The Lions offense is going to find ways to score and I think it will be enough for them to cover the spread here. I know it's not a comfortable bet to make, but sometimes your most uncomfortable bets turn out to be your most profitable ones! Let's go against the world tonight and lets back the Lions against the spread here. You want to get real spicy tonight like I am, then throw a few dollars on the Lions to win this game outright and pull off a major upset!!
