Vegas Likes Detroit Lions to Bounce Back vs. New England Patriots

The Detroit Lions look to put their poor performance against the Cleveland Browns behind them tonight as they take on the New England Patriots.

A second-consecutive clunker would be particularly troubling considering the Lions square off against a good opponent at home and because the third preseason game is the supposed “dress rehearsal” for the regular season.

Will the Lions have a better outing tonight? Vegas thinks so, installing the Lions as 2.5 point favorites over the Patriots. There is also an expectation that quite a few points could be scored – the over/under sits at 46 total points.

The Massey Ratings system has a different view, spitting out a most likely score of 30-24 in favor of the Patriots.
