Oftentimes, as I’ve discussed before, it’s the least spectacular game(s) on the card that will stand out most to bettors in one way or another. In Week 15, for me at least, that happens to be this low-key “showdown” between the Lions and Bills.
Detroit is not mathematically eliminated from contention for an NFC playoff berth, but at 5-8 and needing to vault seven other teams, its chances of advancing are basically zilch.
Plus, the Lions are really banged up right now. Like, significantly.
