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.


Falcons vs Eagles Betting Preview

You can talk about the Eagles and their 10-1-1 ATS run against the Falcons and you can talk any other betting angle you want in the Sunday Nighter on NBC. The truth is this - this is all about Michael Vick returning to Atlanta as the QB of the Eagles.

Philly opened as small favorites here, a week after dominating the Rams. But Atlanta needs the win, after its Week 1 disappointment in Chicago, after which Roddy White apologized to fantasy owners for his poor showing.

As underdogs, the Falcons have not had much bite. This is the first time they are home dogs since 2009 but they are just 2-8 SU when getting points. The Eagles on the other hand are 8-2 ATS in the past 10 road games as a favorite.

Titans Home Dogs vs Hot Ravens

Baltimore had seven takeaways in its Week 1 romp over Pittsburgh and they are favored by one point for every turnover as they head to Tennessee in Week 2.

The Ravens opened as 7-point chalk against a Titans team that got two scores from Kenny Britt, but not much else in a loss to the Jaguars. But with a week of practice under Chris Johnson's belt, are the Titans a threat here?

The threat may be an UNDER bet, as 7 of the past 8 meetings between these teams went that way.
