Buffalo at Detroit

2 units on Detroit -5.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: LOSS
Detroit is coming off two straight losses in which they scored just 16 combined points. Two things can happen for the Lions here. They can enter the regular season off three straight losses or they can win at home and end the preseason on a high note. This is a team with shaky confidence yet high hopes. I think they are going to attempt to get some offense going and play well enough to win this game and cover the spread. I think this game means more to the Lions than the Steelers. In the preseason, home teams scoring 17 points or less per game are 70% against the spread. One unit on Detroit to cover.
