There are eight home underdogs in the NFL on Sunday. One such underdog is the Detroit Lions, who take four points at home against the Philadelphia Eagles.
There’s no question that a handful of the house dogs will cash in on week 1, although I don’t believe the Lions will be one of them. The darlings of HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” the money poured into Detroit from casual gamblers watching the show. And while head coach Dan Campbell does great TV up-downs with players, it may not lead to many more wins.

The Lions have more talent this season, but my problem with them is on the defensive side of the ball. Even with the addition of Aidan Hutchinson, there are still too many holes in the defence, especially the back seven. Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts should be playing a big game as both a runner and a passer and I don’t see Detroit’s attack last four quarters.
Betting on the NFL?
These two teams played in Detroit last season and Philadelphia blew out the Lions 44-6. In that game, the Eagles rushed for 236 yards and 5.1 YPC. Expect more of the same on Sunday.
I’m bringing this line closer to Eagles -6 so there is some value supporting Philadelphia as a modest favorite on the road. The Lions were the talk of the summer, but they just don’t sit well with the Eagles. Put the points in this one.
The piece: Eagles -4.
