Lions vs. Broncos Prediction and Pick

Earlier this week, BetSided’s Iain MacMillan made his pick on the point total in this game. 

“The only bet to make in this game has to be the UNDER. It's hit in six straight games for the Broncos, and it's gone 8-2 in the last 10 games for the Lions. ...Neither team is great offensively. The Broncos rank 17th in yards per play at 5.5, and the Lions rank 28th at 5.0. Meanwhile, the Broncos defense has been a solid unit this season, ranking 16th in opponent yards per play. The Lions defense is still near the bottom of the NFL, but they've approved in recent weeks, allowing teams to get only an average of 5.6 yards per play.” 

This total has moved to 42.5 since he made this prediction. As MacMillan pointed out, the Broncos’s offense isn’t great. They aren’t explosive and I don’t trust them to put away a Lions team that continuously finds themselves in close games. The Lions have covered in their last four games and I’m taking them to cover in a fifth straight.

Pick: Lions +10 (-110)
