Detroit Lions Return from Bye as Underdogs Against Philadelphia Eagles

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

The Detroit Lions will be coming off their bye week while the Eagles will be heading into their bye when the two sides meet on Sunday afternoon. The Eagles’ 3-2 start has them tied with the Giants for the top spot in the NFC East while the Lions have some work to do to climb out of a 1-3 hole. Needless to say, this will be an important game for both sides.

The early betting line gives the Eagles a five and a half point edge over the Lions. It’s an interesting line considering the way these two teams have performed so far this year. The Lions are 0-4 against the spread including 0-1 as a road underdog. The 5.5 points seems like a lot for the Eagles to give considering their three wins have come by a combined four points.

Something has to give on Sunday. Which way would you bet?
