Thanksgiving Special: Eagles at Lions

Ebron Lions NFL

The Detroit Lions are set to partake in their yearly Thanksgiving Day game in Week 12, but it will be far from a festive mood in Motown for the matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite claiming back-to-back wins over the Packers and Raiders, the Lions’ early season struggles have put them well back in the NFC playoff picture and they’ll need a miracle to make the playoffs at 3-7 SU.

Shark Bites
  • The Lions are 2-9 SU and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 TNF games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the Eagles' last 10 games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the Lions' last 10 games as home underdogs.

Lions backers have gotten some relief in the last few weeks, however, as the club has covered the spread on both occasions after going 1-7 ATS to start the season.

Historically speaking, the Eagles have enjoyed facing Detroit. Philly is 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS in its last eight games versus the Lions. The Eagles enter the contest as losers of three out of their last four and have been largely underwhelming this season at 4-6 SU and ATS, leaving many to speculate that the seat under head coach Chip Kelly could be warming up.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The point spread was settled in at 1.5 for the host Detroit Lions earlier in the week, according to Bovada. The over under betting line was hovering around 47, with odds movement expected during the week at MyBookie.
