Pro football gambling handicappers can also see improvement with the Detroit Lions as they are proving to be a NFL sports gambling bargain value on the board.
The Detroit Lions will host the Washington Redskins on Sunday with a FOX telecast set for 1:05 PM Eastern. Sports-Gambling opened with Detroit as a 1 point favorite and with an over/under of 44.
The Washington Redskins have a NFL gambling record of 4-3 straight up and 4-2-1 against the spread. While it has not at all been pretty the Redskins have proven to be a hard playing and opportunistic team.
Last week the Redskins won at Chicago 17-14 thanks to their defense forcing the Bears into multiple turnovers including a “pick six” interception. The defense is the ultimate “bend but don’t break” unit that ranks 31st in yards allowed but 10th in points permitted. The offense ranks 18th overall and has been inconsistent.
Detroit has a NFL betting record of 1-5 straight up but 5-1 against the spread as they have been highly competitive in all of their games despite missing starting quarterback Matt Stafford since week one although he is probable for this game.
Shaun Hill did a nice job in filling in for Stafford as the offense ranks 11th in scoring and 7th in passing and if Stafford stumbles the fans may be chanting for Hill’s return.
Washington has paid out in 10 of their last 14 games that follow a bye week. Washington has paid out in just 6 of their last 27 games versus teams with a losing record. Detroit has paid out in just 6 of their last 19 games at home. Detroit has paid out in just 17 of their last 54 games as a favorite.
Washington has gone under the total in 9 of their last 12 games versus teams with a losing record while Detroit has gone over the total in 14 of their last 19 games versus teams with a winning record.
The home team has paid out in 7 of the last 9 head to head pro football gambling matchups in this series and the two teams have failed to go over the total in 8 consecutive meetings.
