What to Know
The Detroit Lions are favored to win for the first time this season. They will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at TIAA Bank Field after a week off. The Lions won't have the home-field advantage, but they do enjoy a 3-point advantage in the spread.
Detroit didn't finish too far behind, but the team still lost 35-29 to the New Orleans Saints two weeks ago. The losing side was boosted by QB Matthew Stafford, who passed for three TDs and 206 yards on 31 attempts.
Meanwhile, the game between Jacksonville and the Houston Texans last week was not a total blowout, but with Jacksonville falling 30-14 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. A silver lining for Jacksonville was the play of QB Gardner Minshew, who passed for two TDs and 301 yards on 49 attempts. Minshew ended up with a passer rating of 128.30.
This next contest is expected to be close, with Detroit going off at just a 3-point favorite. True fans might be the only ones betting on them, currently 1-3 ATS, to cover the spread.
The losses put the Lions at 1-3 and the Jaguars at 1-4. Detroit is 1-1 after losses this season, Jacksonville 0-3.
