NFL Odds: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Lions are 1-point favorites versus the Seahawks, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 43 points. Seattle is 4-3 overall and 1-3 on the road this year, while Detroit is 2-4 overall and 1-1 at home.

Line Movement: The Lions opened as 1.5-point favorites but the line has been bet down to 1 at most sports books. Some books are also offering Seattle at +2.5, while the total has been bet down to 43 after opening at 45.

Public Betting: Of the wagers currently placed on this game, 53% of NFL public bettors currently favor the Seahawks. This information is subject to change leading up to kickoff, however, so make sure you click on the link provided for the most up-to-date NFL public betting numbers.

NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Detroit. According to latest NFL trends, the Seahawks are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games in Week 8 and 9-20-1 ATS in their last 30 road games. On the other side, the Lions are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games in October and 5-1 ATS in their last six games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game. At some point Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson are going to have big games. They’re due, and while Seattle’s secondary is one of the best in the NFL, the Lions won’t be held to just a single touchdown today. Look for the Seahawks’ offense to struggle against a Detroit defense that played well Monday night in Chicago, and for the Lions to cover the 1.
