Detroit at New Orleans

Sunday 10/15 01:00 PM Eastern

1 unit on Detroit +4.5 (-105) (risk 1 to return 1.95)  RESULT: loss

1 unit on Game Total OVER 49.5 -110 (risk 1 to return 1.91)  RESULT: win

Detroit has won the last three meetings with the Saints, including 28-13 last December as a 6.5-point underdog on the road. The Lions need to bounce back from Sunday's loss to Carolina when they held the Panthers to just 28 rushing yards, but couldn't overcome Cam Newton's best game of the season so far. Matthew Stafford finished 23-of-35 for 229 yards and he and Drew Brees have similar stats this year with both throwing for more than 1,100 yards. Stafford has a minor ankle injury, but is expected to play in this one. New Orleans had the week off after beating Miami in London and the Saints have covered just once in their last four games after a win of at least 14 points. Three of the last four meetings have gone OVER and the Saints went OVER three straight before the London game. New Orleans is 5-0 OVER its last five games against the NFC and six of its last seven overall dating to last season. Also, the Saints are 11-3-1 OVER their last 15 home contests. Detroit's only other loss besides the Panthers involved the controversial last-second call against Atlanta. Take the points with the Lions and the OVER.
