When the Detroit Lions announced that Calvin Johnson would be inactive against the Green Bay Packers last week, the betting line quickly moved from Packers -7 to Packers -10. It just goes to show how much of an impact Calvin has on the game and those putting money on its outcome.
Johnson’s status for Sunday’s game against the Browns is still up in the air but that hasn’t kept the sports books from making the Lions road favorites. According to SportsPlays.com, the Lions are currently favored by 2.5 points.
Some minor movement one way or the other isn’t unusual but there could be more this week as we get updated reports on Calvin Johnson’s status.
Here is a quick look at the betting options for Lions-Browns as of early this morning.
Against the spread:
Lions -2.5 (-113)
Browns +2.5 (-108)
Over 44 (-110)
Under 44 (-108)
