New England at Detroit

Thursday 08/08 07:30 PM Eastern

1 unit on Detroit +1 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91)  RESULT: loss

2 units on Game Total UNDER 35.5 -109 (risk 2 to return 3.83)  RESULT: win

Defending champion New England has nothing to prove. They won't risk an injury to QB Tom Brady and the offense lost star TE Rob Gronkowski. They've added a slew of wide receivers, too, so the defense is far ahead of the offense. Last preseason the Patriots averaged 15.5 points per game in their two road games, including a 25-14 loss in their road opener at Carolina. They head to Detroit, a team coached by Matt Patricia, the former defensive coordinator for Bill Belichick. The two met last season and Patricia's Lions shut down the Pats in a 26-10 win in Detroit in Week 3 as Brady had just 133 passing yards. So yes, Patricia knows a lot about how Belichick coaches! Patricia improved the Detroit defense last season to #10 in yards allowed and against the run, plus #16 in points surrendered. After a 6-10 inaugural campaign including 0-2 at home in preseason, look for a strong all-around effort from the home team with the champs in town in a game featuring more defense than offense. Play Detroit and also take the UNDER for a Max Play.
