Accuscore: New York Jets vs. Detroit Lions


After 10,000 computer simulations here is what Accuscore has to say about the Jets vs. Lions game:

The New York Jets are a solid favorite with a 68% chance to beat the Detroit Lions. LaDainian Tomlinson is projected for 74 rushing yards and a 51% chance of having at least 1 rushing TD. In the 32% of simulations where Detroit Lions wins, Matthew Stafford averages 1.21 TD passes vs 0.83 interceptions, while in losses he has a ratio of 0.86 TDs to 1.54 interceptions. Jahvid Best averages 76 rushing yards and 0.82 rushing TDs when Detroit Lions wins and 41 yards and 0.28 TDs in losses. The New York Jets has a 70% chance of forcing more turnovers than they commit. Positive turnover margin helps them win 83% of the time. SPREADS / TOTALS: Current Point Spread is DET +4 — Over/Under line is 41.5

So what do you think, do the computers know best? Do you give the Lions better than a 32% chance to win or does that sound like too much? The SideLion Report predictions will go up on Saturday but use this as an opportunity to start looking forward to Sunday a little early.
