1.5 units on Detroit +4 (-105) (risk 1.5 to return 2.93) RESULT: LOSS
The NY Giants are off a very emotional game last week vs. their division rival Dallas Cowboys. It would be easy to see this team coming out with something less than their "A" game off that performance, and that will not get it done vs. the confident and emerging Detroit Lions. Detroit fans breathed a sigh of relief when it was revealed that QB Matthew Stafford dislocated and tore some ligaments on his throwing hand last week, but will play this one wearing a special glove. Stafford has been the catalyst just about every week, leading the Lions back from fourth quarter deficits like it is routine. The Lions own the fifth best record in the NFL since mid-November last year at 15-6. This line is a bit puzzling, as Detroit is still flying well under the radar. While they are 15-6 over their last 21 games, Detroit has not lost any game over those 21 by more than seven points. In fact, if they played all 21 games to a line of +4.5 they would be 18-3 ATS. Take the points on Detroit.
