Top Betting Trends:

DETROIT is 5-14 ATS (-10.4 Units) in road games over the last 3 seasons.

DETROIT is 5-14 ATS (-10.4 Units) in road lined games over the last 3 seasons.

DETROIT is 8-20 ATS (-14.0 Units) when playing with 6 or less days rest over the last 3 seasons.

DETROIT is 32-51 ATS (-24.1 Units) in games played on a grass field since 1992.


The Texans got their first win last week, while the Lions are still searching for theirs. Detroit played well last week in Minnesota despite walking away with another loss, but typically it doesn’t play well on the road. Houston probably isn’t good enough to be favored over any team by 9.5-points, but Matt Schaub looked good last week and this is a team that should have beat Peyton Manning and the Colts two games ago. We weary of giving up that many points, but we’ll lay the wood and say that Detroit doesn’t come to play in back to back weeks. We predict the Texas over the Lions 20-10.
