Raiders vs. Lions Free Pick
The Oakland Raiders will look to pull off a small upset today at Ford Field when they take on the Detroit Lions at 1:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Lions are 1-point home favorites versus the Raiders after Oakland opened as a 1-point favorite. The total, meanwhile, currently sits at 50 points after opening at 47.5.
The Raiders are 4-5 on the year and 5-4 against the spread, which includes a record of 3-1 ATS on the road. On the other side, the Lions are 2-7 straight up and just 2-7 against the spread.
The Lions will be flying high after beating the Packers for the first time at Lambeau Field since Barry Sanders was taking handoffs in their backfield. But the Lions have been inconsistent this season when it comes to their effort and the Raiders have more on the line with an opportunity to stay in the AFC wild card mix. Oakland is sixth in the NFL in passing yards per game (271.9) and ninth in points (25.2). They should be able to move the ball effectively against Detroit's 25th-ranked defense, which is allowing 29.0 points per game this season.
