Lions-Bills Preview

The Detroit Lions hope that their final preseason game of the season will help them decide between Daunte Culpepper and Matthew Stafford at quarterback.

Bet NFL Future Odds

Most teams use their final preseason game to decide between backups, but not the Lions. When Detroit travels to Ralph Wilson Stadium on Thursday night to take on the Buffalo Bills, the Lions will evaluate the play of Culpepper and Stafford to determine which player will start under center come Week 1.

The Lions are currently 1-2 against the spread in the preseason, while the Bills are 1-3. Buffalo is 1-0 ATS at home and 1-0 ATS as the home favorite, while Detroit is 0-1 ATS on the road and 0-1 as the underdog.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Lions 3-point road underdogs against the Bills on Thursday night. The over/under total for this game is 33.5.

The last time these two teams met was in October of 2006 when the Lions edged the Bills 20-17 and covered the 2-point spread. The Bills did beat the Lions 24-17 in October of 2002.

Even though this is the fourth preseason game and starters generally don’t play that much, expect the young, experienced Lions’ starters to get plenty of game action. Thus, we favor Detroit in this matchup, even though Buffalo has the better overall talent. Take the Lions +3, although keep in mind that the fourth preseason game is the toughest to handicap.
