The Detroit Lions bounced back nicely from a tough overtime defeat to the Seattle Seahawks by taking their frustrations out on what was an undefeated flock of Atlanta Falcons. The 20-6 win saw them cover the closing 3-point NFL odds and play to an easy under. Both results cost the online sportsbook. First place will be on the line to kick off Week 4 under the Thursday night lights when Dan Campbell takes his squad onto the “Frozen Tundra” to lock horns with a Green Bay Packers team it swept last season’s rivalry from to move to 3-0 SU and ATS in the last three meetings. The most recent triumph bounced the Packers from postseason contention. Make it a point to check injury reports leading up to kick-off after the Lions were forced to go without some key cogs on the offensive side of the ball in the win over Atlanta. That hasn’t stopped early NFL bettors from hammering the visiting Lions per early week wagering reports!

Detroit Lions Week 4 Matchup

On Thursday, September 28, 2023, the Detroit Lions will take on the Green Bay Packers from Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI. Kickoff time for Thursday Night Football is set for 8:15 p.m. ET with television coverage on PRIME VIDEO. The betting line for this NFC North duel hit the board with the Lions catching 1.5-points and the total lined 46.5. There’s been heavy line movement with both the side and total since the lines reopened to the NFL betting market. With over 80 percent of the bets and 90 percent of the money coming in on Detroit, the Lions now find themselves installed short 1.5-point road chalk at the online sportsbook. Should it hold up, it would mark only the fourth time the Lions were favored to win a game on the road since the 2020 season. It would also stand as only the third time since the turn of the century that Detroit was expected to beat the Cheeseheads in Lambeau. After banking on the under in last week’s throw down with the Falcons, total bettors seem to be doubling down on this matchup against the Packers with the O/U down two full points to 44.5. Both of last year’s meetings played to low scorers with an average of 30.0 points scored per game. The end results moved the under to 6-4 in the last ten overall meetings with three of the last five in Lambeau cashing under tickets as well.

Detroit Lions Week 3 Recap

Though it was the Atlanta Falcons that entered Sunday’s matchup unscathed, it was the Detroit Lions that played like the undefeated team dominating throughout to secure the 20-6 win and cover as 3-point favorites per the closing NFL odds. It was a predictable showing coming off a tough overtime loss at home to the Seattle Seahawks. The end result proved to be a negligible losing result for the online sportsbook with 67 percent of the bets and 52 percent of the money locked in on the home team. Dan Campbell’s offense dominated what had been a pretty decent Falcons defense racking up 358 total yards while averaging 5.6 yards per play. Jahmyr Gibbs received the most burn of his rookie campaign with David Montgomery sidelined turning his 17 carries into 80 scoreless yards, while rookie Matt LaPorta scored his first NFL touchdown after taking a 45-yard Jared Goff pass into the end zone. Even so, Detroit failed to exceed its 25.5-point team total in the winning effort. All the credit goes to Aaron Glenn’s defense which held Atlanta’s powerful running game to a grand total of 44 yards and an anemic 2.2 yards per carry. On top of that, Aidan Hutchinson and his mates terrorized Desmond Ridder with a constant stream of pressure that resulted in seven sacks. It amounted to 201 passing yards allowed with a long of 28. The showing finds Detroit’s defense ranked No. 11 overall with the overall strength stopping the run (No. 6). The triumph moves them to 2-1 SU and ATS which situates them atop the NFC North standings along with the Green Bay Packers. This week’s installment of Thursday Night Football should be a hoot!

Founded in 1932, the Detroit Lions have a lot of history, though most of it is for their ineptitude. Once upon a time, the Lions were a power franchise in the NFL.

From 1952 through 1957, the Lions won three NFL championships. Unfortunately for Detroit, that last title in 1957 is not remembered except for its elderly fans. Detroit has never made the Super Bowl since the game's inception in the 1966 season.

The Lions may not have a lot of championships, but they have had many memorable star players through the years. Bobby Layne was the Lions' quarterback in their 1950s era of glory.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Lions had some tough teams that were pretty good, including its 1970 playoff team. Those teams had big-name stars such as cornerback Lem Barney, defensive tackle Alex Karras, cornerback Dick LeBeau, linebacker Joe Schmidt, center Ed Flanigan, kicker Errol Mann, and tight end Charlie Sanders.

The Lions were such an attractive team in that era they were featured in a major motion picture. Alan Alda starred in Paper Lion as the writer that tried out for the team and chronicled his training camp experience in a book.

In later years the Lions had to of the most exciting running backs in NFL history. Billy Sims and Barry Sanders electrified fans and gamblers with their exploits.

In 1991 the Lions had their closest shot at a Super Bowl. Detroit made the NFC championship game but was eliminated by the eventual champion Washington Redskins.

Wayne Fontes was the coach of that Lions team and led Detroit to the playoffs four times from 1991 through 1995.

Since 2000 the Lions have made the NFL playoffs just three times. Their last appearance was in 2016.
