Betting market: The Bills are surprisingly seeing an onslaught of cash money. The line opened at a PK, but Buffalo moved to -2.5 and briefly hit -3 before some buyback on the Lions pushed it back down to -2.5.
The over has been a very popular and sharp pick, which is also pretty surprising. With more than 70% of bets and 88% of dollars at the time of writing, the total has risen from 38 to 39.5 since opening (see live betting data here). — Mark Gallant
Trends to know: The Bills have a worse record but are the betting favorites. Since 2003, teams with a losing record favored against an opponent with more wins have gone 246-214-14 (54%) against the spread, including 163-136-11 (55%) ATS when facing a non-divisional opponent. — John Ewing
What a bad spot this is for Matthew Stafford and the Lions…
Detroit defeated Arizona, 17-3, last week for its third double-digit win of the season. In Stafford’s career, he has played 25 games coming off a double-digit win, and he is 7-16-2 ATS (30.4%), failing to cover the spread by 4.2 PPG and losing bettors 8.9 units.
