Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks (1-2) travel east to take on Jared Goff and the Detroit Lions (1-2) in a NFL Week 4 matchup at Ford Field on Sunday. Both teams are looking to bounce back from tough Week 3 losses. The Seahawks fell short at home, losing 27-23 to the Atlanta Falcons, while the Lions lost 28-24 to the Minnesota Vikings. The Lions will be without their two most explosive offensive players, as running back D'Andre Swift (shoulder) and wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) have both ruled out for this matchup.
Detroit is favored by 3.5 points in the latest Lions vs. Seahawks odds from Caesars Sportsbook, and the over/under is set at 47.5. Before making any Seahawks vs. Lions picks, you need to see the NFL predictions and betting advice from the red-hot simulation model at SportsLine.

What you need to know about the Lions
The Lions will be extremely short-handed on the offensive side of the ball without Swift and St. Brown on Sunday. Both players are Pro Bowl talents, and their production will be difficult for Detroit to replace. Jamaal Williams has proven to be a capable NFL running back, and he will have the added benefit of running behind arguably the NFL's best offensive line.
Defensively, the Lions have been inconsistent, but they appear to have struck gold with rookie defensive end Aidan Hutchinson, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. The former Michigan standout has three sacks, four QB hits, two tackles for loss, and seven total tackles through three games in 2022.
What you need to know about the Seahawks
Meanwhile, Seattle was within a late touchdown of stealing the win, but ultimately took a loss against the Atlanta Falcons 27-23. No one had a standout game offensively for the Seahawks, but they got scores from WR DK Metcalf and TE Will Dissly. Smith ended up with a passer rating of 145.2.
The Seahawks have had major issues defending the run in 2022, allowing 157 yards per game on the ground -- the third worst figure in the NFL. Likewise, Seattle has had some issues establishing its ground game on the offensive side of the ball, averaging a paltry 74.7 rushing yards per game (fourth worst in the league). For the Seahawks to pull off a road win over Detroit in Week 4, they will need to reverse these trends.
