Detroit Lions

NFL Teams Detroit LionsEnjoying a hot streak, the Lions are celebrating their 4th consecutive win, bringing their season record to a strong 5-1 after triumphing over Tampa Bay with a 20-6 scoreline. Jared Goff, the star quarterback, is having a great season with 1,618 passing yards, 11 touchdowns, and a decent interception rate. The Lions’ ground game is spearheaded by David Montgomery, who’s rushed his way to 385 yards and notched 6 touchdowns, closely followed by Jahmyr Gibbs. In the air, Amon-Ra St. Brown stands out, with 38 catches culminating in 455 yards and 3 touchdowns. Josh Reynolds and Sam LaPorta have also shone, each amassing over 300 receiving yards with 3 touchdowns each.

On the defense front, Alex Anzalone is setting the standard with 44 total tackles. Aidan Hutchinson, with a stellar performance, boasts 4.5 sacks, while Jerry Jacobs intercepts with precision, marking 3 interceptions this season. Remarkably, when we talk of Sunday games where they’re pegged as underdogs, the Lions have outperformed expectations, ranking first in several NFL metrics like rushing yards allowed per game and Q1 points.


Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore RavensThe Ravens, having freshly emerged from a 24-16 victory over the Tennessee Titans, come into this game with a 4-2 record. The indomitable Lamar Jackson is putting up impressive numbers, both in the air and on the ground, throwing for 1,253 yards and rushing for 327 yards. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill also contribute significantly to the rushing yard tally. Zay Flowers is the man of the hour in the receiving department, with 35 catches amounting to 367 yards. Mark Andrews and Nelson Agholor are also making their presence felt in the air.

Defensively, Roquan Smith dominates with 63 total tackles. Geno Stone is on a roll with 3 interceptions, and Justin Madubuike is leading in sacks. Patrick Queen, Jadeveon Clowney, and Kyle Hamilton are also making remarkable defensive contributions. However, history reveals that the Ravens have struggled as favorites in the wake of victories, especially against NFC opponents in October. Yet, they rank at the pinnacle in terms of sacks and limiting opponent points in the first quarter.



While both teams are strong, I’m leaning towards the Lions covering the +3 spread. The combination of their solid defense and the Ravens’ history post-London games without a break makes Detroit the more appealing choice. Expect a game where the Lions give their all and potentially emerge victorious. I think this will also be a high-scoring affair so the O 42 in BUSR NFL Odds seems like a good bet.
