Detroit Lions Travel to Seattle to Face the Seahawks
The Detroit Lions are good at covering, even though they do not have an excellent SU record. The Lions are 2-12-1 SU and 10-5 ATS. Seattle is coming off a loss to the Bears, which was unacceptable as they blew up late in the game.
Seattle Seahawks will be -6.5 on Sunday, but 60% of bettors like Detroit. This is an easy choice considering Seattle is 7-8 ATS. The Lions have been more trustworthy.
If Jared Goff comes back from COVID-19, this is an easy decision. 57% of bettors like the over of 42.5 points.
