Can Lions Cover Against Tampa Bay?

There are very few positive ATS trends for the Detroit Lions in recent years, but one of them appears in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Detroit begins another season of promise with bettors backing them heavily (line opened at +3 for Tampa and is now a PK at some sportsbooks), in part because of their 7-1 ATS domination against the Bucs lately).

Swinging three points on the spread is a big deal for Week 1 NFL bettors to consider. It means plenty of money went behind Detroit as road underdogs.
