Thursday Night Football Expert Picks: Chiefs vs Lions
While we'll have more on Chiefs vs. Lions tomorrow, two of our experts have already tracked their spread picks for Thursday Night Football Week 1 in the Action Network app.
Both Chris Raybon and Sean Koerner are on the Lions to cover the spread, although they did track their bets at earlier odds that were better for Detroit bettors. Raybon bet the Lions at +7, and then doubled down when the line moved to Lions +6, while Koerner is also on the Lions +6.
On the player prop side, Prop Bomb is on the Lions' David Montgomery to go over his rushing total: "I expect at least 12-to-15 attempts for Montgomery in his debut, and I love his chances of surpassing his rushing yards prop due to an improved offensive line and the absence of his opponent's top defensive player."
