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.
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.
