Philadelphia at Detroit

Sunday 10/31 01:00 PM Eastern

1.5 units on Philadelphia -3 (-125) (risk 1.5 to return 2.7)  RESULT: WIN

The Detroit Lions keep shooting themselves in the foot as they threaten to win their first game, but they make crucial mistakes late in games. The Lions haven't scored more than 19 points since Week 1, and they are #24 in total yards gained. Detroit did cover last week against the Rams, but the Lions are 0-4 ATS following an ATS win. Jared Goff completed only 22 of 36 for 268 yards and 2 interceptions on Sunday and continues to have trouble closing games out. Detroit has the #22 pass defense in the league, and Matthew Stafford threw for 334 yards against his former team. Philadelphia is 2-5 while playing a formidable schedule, losing to Tampa Bay and at Las Vegas. Jalen Hurts has completed 61.2% of his passes for 1,716 yards and 10 touchdowns (4 INTs) for the Eagles. The Lions defense also has to be prepared for the run as Hurts has a team-leading 361 rushing yards with five touchdowns. Rookie receiver DeVonta Smith has 32 catches for 406 yards and a TD for Philly, and all of this will be too much for beleaguered Detroit. Play the Eagles.
