Betting market: The line for this game opened on Wednesday morning at BookMaker, but it was taken off the board shortly after when Ryan Tannehill was declared out. It has since re-opened with the Lions as a 3-point favorite, which is less than what was expected.
The lookahead line for this game was Detroit -2 last week at Westgate, which was assuming Tannehill would be at quarterback. Bob “Scooch” Scucci said on The Favorites podcast that Detroit would be around -5.5 to -6 if Tannehill as declared out, but here we are at -3.
Trends to know: The Dolphins are 4-2 straight up and 4-2 against the spread. In Matthew Stafford’s career, he is 15-25-2 ATS (-10.8 units) when facing teams above .500 SU and ATS, the least profitable NFL quarterback in this spot since being drafted by Detroit in 2009. — Evan Abrams
