Historic Point Spread in Lions Game

It’s a once-per-decade occurrence cropping up on the Week 2 NFL odds menu – the Detroit Lions favored by 9 points.

If you wondered aloud when the last time the sad-sack Lions were favored by so much, the answer is Christmas Eve, 2000.The Bears were in town, Stoney Case and Charlie Batch were the Lion QBs and they lost (go figure) 23-20 on a last-second, 54-yard field goal by Paul Edinger.

But here they are at home against the Chiefs, favored by nine against a team that can’t be as bad as they showed last week at home to Buffalo. Are you ready to trust the Lions as 9-point chalk at TopBet? It seems the majority of bettors using OddsShark.com think this way as 61% of picks were on Detroit as of Friday.
