Betting market: Even though the Cardinals’ win over the Packers just bounced Mike McCarthy out of Green Bay, the public isn’t backing Arizona as home dogs to the lowly Lions.

Just 41% of bets and a measly 22% of money is on the Cardinals as of writing (see live data here), which has moved them from +1.5 to +3 since opening. Mark Gallant

Trends to know: Games with low over/unders of 44 or fewer points are more likely to go over their totals.

Since 2003, the over in these games is 1,200-1,116-45 (52%). It’s even more profitable to bet the over in such games if its a non-division matchup and wind won’t be a factor, like Lions-Cardinals. John Ewing

The Lions are coming off a three-game home stand in which they went 1-2 straight-up and against the spread, with a big loss to their NFC North rival Bears.
