The Lions have dealt with some tough-luck injuries already this season, but some of those stars could be returning this week!
Amon-Ra St. Brown, Jahmyr Gibbs and Brian Branch are all listed as Questionable for this Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay after missing last week’s beatdown of Carolina.
Let’s dig into the current odds on this game to see if we should jump on these odds in case they move.
Lions vs. Bucs Week 6 Odds
Detroit is just a 3-point favorite on the road at a 3-1 Tampa Bay team that’s had a stout defense through the first month of the season.
But when you look at who the Bucs have beaten this season (Vikings, Bears and Saints), that 3-1 record starts to look a little less impressive.
Detroit, on the other hand, has already defeated a pair of winning teams in Kansas City and Atlanta and took Seattle to overtime.
This game could come down to the Lions’ rushing attack. Detroit is averaging 4.3 yards per rush this season while Tampa Bay is allowing 4.1 yards per rush.
If the Lions can keep that up AND add a couple of big gains through the air, it could be hard for the Bucs to catch up.
There’s a chance that the Lions get some of their injured players back this week, and if that’s the case, this line could move further in their favor. That means NOW is the time to bet on Detroit!
If you don’t want to take a side on this game, you could instead bet on the total points.
The total points on this game is set at 43.5, but there could be some value in taking the under.
Detroit is slightly favored to score under 23.5 points (-112 odds) while the Bucs are also favored to score under 20.5 points (-122 odds).
The under has hit in 3-of-4 games for Tampa Bay this season, with the highest total in any Bucs game reaching just 44 points so far.
