NFL Odds – Cardinals at Lions Sports Betting Lines

There’s no better relief for an NFL odds beat down than a game against the Detroit Lions. No matter how you played in previous game and no matter how bad you might feel after a devastating loss the Lions can’t help but make you look good.

Detroit’s biggest advantage in this sports betting lines matchup is the home field advantage. But in all honesty it doesn’t much matter where this team plays, it simply doesn’t have any talent. Rookie QB Matthew Stafford has shown some glimpses of brilliance including a 400+ yard 5 TD passing game, but he hasn’t come close to replicating that performance in any football bet matchup since.

Granted the Cardinals were utterly dominated against a middling Niners squad on Monday night and the offense gave up a ridiculous amount of turnovers. But that game is likely a bet on football aberration and it’s very difficult to imagine the same result in Detroit.

WR Larry Fitzgerald is a bit of a concern with a knee injury and may not play. But the Cards enough weapons to get past the Lions without him and Arizona’s stout defense should make life miserable for Stafford and Co.

Rookie QBs can be pressured into many mistakes and Stafford is no different as his 20 INTs attest. The Cards pass rush is also a good one with 36 sacks on the season. In a matchup between an 8-5 team vs. a 2-11 team the smart money is always on the former, especially if the latter is Detroit.
