Detroit at Dallas

1 unit on Detroit +3 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: WIN
It is starting to look really ugly for the Dallas Cowboys. The Dak Prescott mystique from his rookie year that saw Dallas win 13 games, eroded to nine last year. At 1-2 to start 2018, and just 13.7 points per game, things are not well in Big D. A 74.9 passer rating, with just two TD's and two INT's just isn't getting it done. The Lions after opening the season with a pair of losses, buried the Patriots last week 26-10. It was even uglier than that as Detroit held New England to 209 total yards. It was their lowest output since 2010 with starters (not week 17). It has to be a huge building block for this Lions team. Dallas has not thrown the ball for more than 160 yards in any of their three games, and is struggling to sustain drives. I think the wrong team is favored here in this one, so I will go with Detroit.
