Detroit Lions Week 3 odds and betting picks


The Detroit Lions are coming off two straight losses to NFC contenders, and the schedule Gods gave them no breaks as the Baltimore Ravens are waiting for them in Week 3. Detroit has a limited cast of talent to utilize on top of a set of rookie coaches and coordinators. As we saw on Monday Night Football against Green Bay, their lack of talent and experience makes it difficult for Detroit to stay with teams for 60 minutes.

Baltimore is arguably the worst team in the league to face this issue. Their dominant run game and sharp set of coaches routinely pick apart foes with ease. The Ravens have arguably the best roster in the AFC and an elite coaching staff.

Detroit is simply looking to help us bettors out. We’re going to break down the Lions’ Week 3 odds and betting picks.
