Detroit Lions NFL Betting

Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn and head coach Matt Patricia lost all credibility long ago. But the Ford Family that owns the Lions has shown more loyalty to this Frick and Frack pair than any other NFL franchise, with the possible exception of the Pittsburg Steelers, ever would. Then again, the Steelers would have never been idiotic enough to hire the dummkopf duo in the first place. No matter how much you can bash and deride the Lions its never enough. Green Bay laughed the Lions off the field last week. Detroit was rendered helpless. Fans stopped getting mad about them Lions. Instead they have just given up and stopped caring. Detroit will travel to the desert this week to face the upstart Arizona Cardinals. State Farm Stadium is likely going to be a mirage for the Lions instead of an Oasis. Gamblers wasted no time backing the Cards. Early action moved the Arizona price up by a field goal in a matter of minutes.

Detroit Lions Week 2 Recap

Last week the Detroit Lions teased gamblers by taking a 14-3 first quarter lead at Green Bay against the Packers before reality set in. Green Bay scored the next 34 points of the game to end up winning in a romp 42-21 as 7-point home chalks with the game going over the total of 41. Detroit is now 0-2 both straight up and against the spread with both of their games going over the total. The Lions are defenseless with NFL Rankings of 28th for total defense, 32nd for rushing defense, 30th for points allowed, and 32nd for takeaways. For a coach and general manager that have long preached “The Patriot Way” the reality is that this has been the “Lions Way” on steroids.

Last week at Lambeau Field the Packers outgained the Lions 488-307 with a 26-19 first down advantage. Green Bay compiled four sacks and forced a turnover. The Lions had the ball for only 25:14 time of possession. The current Packers are never associated with being a running team but Sunday would have made Vince Lombardi proud. Green Bay ground the Lions defense into hamburger with 259 yards rushing and 7.4 yards per carry. Packers running back Aaron Jones did his best Jim Taylor imitation with 168 yards rushing and two touchdowns on just 18 carries. Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers picked the Lions apart with 18 of 30 for 240 yards and two touchdowns. His QB rating was 107.6. Lions QB Matthew Stafford was 20 of 33 for 244 yards with two touchdowns.
