Staff Prediction

This will be a great defense for Josh Allen to really light up and get some confidence against. Allen has been struggling a bit in recent games, but he is still one of if not the best QB in the NFL. The Lions secondary is one of the worst in the NFL as they allow nearly 300 YPG in the air so Diggs and Davis should be open plenty. The Bills defense matches up well with the strong Lions run game and shutting down Williams and Swift is not easy, but they will get a few stops resulting in a big double digit victory.

Pick: Buffalo -10

Detroit playing some great football and the coach has them motivated on both sides of the ball! They don't matchup well against the Bills one of the better teams in the league! They will have a hard time stopping the offense and on defense the Bills really get after it!

Josh Allen has struggled a bit lately and has turned the ball over quite a bit this season. I'm gonna take the 10 points with the home team in this one. Detroit is 6-0-1 in their last 7 games as a home underdog and they are playing some of their best football the past few weeks.

Despite two quality performances over their past three games, the Lions still allow the most points per game. The Bills' offense is much better than the Packers and Giants, so Buffalo should have no issue putting up points in this one. While Detroit's offense is top-10 in scoring, I think they will struggle against a Buffalo defense that rarely allows opponents to score more than 20 points. I would take the Bills to cover kicking off Thanksgiving.
