2002 Season NFL Football Past Picks

Buffalo at Detroit

Thursday 08/29 08:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Buffalo +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)  RESULT: LOSS

This one is based not so much on faith in Buffalo, but on Detroit's weaknesses. The Lions are 3-20 (including preseason) under Matt Millen/Marty Mornhinweg. Buffalo isn't fairing any better this preseason at 0-3. However, underdogs in matchups of winless teams historically win two out of every three in the preseason. Additionally, teams getting points when facing coaches who historically lose most of their games in the preseason (i.e. Mornhinweg) also win two out of three (5-2 so far this preseason). Buffalo is getting more than a field goal against a very poor team and they should be able to take advantage of it.
