Detroit at Tennessee

2 units on Tennessee PICK () (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: WIN

The Detroit Lions won 10 games a year ago and made the playoffs. All is good right? Let's look a bit deeper. This team started out 5-0 in 2011 and looked to really be poised to have one of those special seasons, but they went just 5-7 from that point. The revealing part is that among their 10 wins, not one team they beat made the playoffs. When they got in the playoffs they promptly exited with a 17-point loss. So while many feel this team will get even better, the jury is more than out. They barely got by St. Louis at home 27-23 then lost once again to a good team at San Francisco. Tennessee has been blown out by a pair of really good teams in San Diego and New England, so most see Detroit as the third good team and another blowout. Well Detroit isn't there yet, and I look for Tennessee to come up big at home staring an 0-3 start in the face. They will have some extra motivation to take down Detroit head coach Jim Schwartz who was their defensive coordinator for eight seasons before taking the Detroit job. The Lions are still fighting to find their way on the road where they are 0-5-1 ATS in their last six. The Titans have come up big after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game at 19-7 ATS in their last 26. Play on Tennessee.
