NFL Detroit Lions Betting Odds & Predictions
Detroit Lions Season Preview / 2017 NFL Detroit Lions Football Odds
Matthew Stafford lived up to the mega-bucks contract he signed in the offseason leading the Detroit Lions to a season-opening 35-23 win over the Arizona Cardinals by throwing four touchdowns passes. It wasn’t the best start for the NFL’s highest paid player after his first attempt was intercepted and returned for a touchdown. But like they did several times last year, the Lions rallied with a fourth quarter comeback. They look to continue that magic against the New York Giants in a Week 2 Monday night matchup.
Stafford had difficulties with the Cardinals in the past but he put those troubles behind him after the opening miscue. He threw for 292 yards and got rookie receiver Kenny Golladay involved in the offense. Another weapon to go along with Golden Tate and Marvin Jones Jr. in the passing game, Golladay had a big debut with half of his four receptions hitting paydirt. Stafford showed confidence in his young receiver by hitting him with scoring tosses on consecutive possessions in the fourth quarter that put the game away.
We weren’t sure what to expect from a defense that lost starters Kerry Hyder Jr. and Brandon Copeland during the preseason, but the unit came up big. Detroit held David Johnson to 23 yards on 11 carries and limited the Cards to just 45 yards on the ground. The Lions also picked off three passes with Miles Killebrew taking his to the house late in the fourth quarter, which gave the Lions a 35-17 lead.

Over/Under Total Result: Over 48.5
The Lions kept attacking and never gave up, which allowed them to overcome an early 10-0 deficit to post the victory. Trailing 17-15 in the fourth quarter, Detroit scored three straight touchdowns to seize control of the game. After winning eight times last season when trailing in the final quarter, the Lions did it again. Behind Stafford they have a confidence that they are never out of it, and they aren’t.
Pre Season Detroit Lions Game Results
Preseason Record: 2-2
ATS Record: 2-2
Over/Under Total Record: 2-2
The Lions overcame a 1-3 start last season and were in the drivers seat for a NFC North title until the wheels came off at the end. Needing a victory in one of their remaining three games, they failed to achieve it and lost out to the Packers. Still, the Lions qualified as a Wild Card but they were overmatched in a loss to the Seahawks. Though the season ended poorly, it should be considered a success and the Lions are looking to build off that for another playoff run.
