Detroit Lions vs. Buffalo Bills Prediction, Pick, Odds: Will Jared Goff Be Busy on Thanksgiving?

The Buffalo Bills and the Detroit Lions will clash from the Motor City for some Thanksgiving day football. There are very few things in the world better than food and football, and that is what we get today. One of the traditions of Thanksgiving is watching the Lions play at noon. Now in my lifetime most of those games end with the Lions losing on Thanksgiving, and they have another tough task today against one of the best teams in football. They will clash with the Buffalo Bills today.

Detroit Lions vs. Buffalo Bills Prediction

Buffalo is regarded as the best team in football by many people. They are led by the pride of Wyoming Josh Allen. Allen is a guy that will win an MVP or two by the time his career ends. He is one of the best signal callers in the game, and the Lions will have their hands full with shutting him down today.

Detroit has really struggled on the defensive side of the football. The Lions rank dead last in the NFL in points allowed per game. Detroit is currently allowing 28.2 points per game which is a large reason that they are 4-6 at the moment. The issue for the Lions has not been their offense. Detroit ranks number eight in the NFL in points per game, scoring 25.0. Jared Goff has turned in a solid season, and the running game has been kind to the Lions. Detroit is playing their best football now, and they enter play winners of three straight games. 

I am staying off the spread and total for this pick, but I found a prop I loved. I am turning my attention to former number-one pick Jared Goff. I will be backing Goff on his passing yards over, which is at 245.5 yards. I expect Detroit to be in a negative game script for most of the game, meaning they will need to throw the football to keep pace. In games that the Lions have lost this year, Goff has gone over this number three times, and in games that they have won, Goff has gone over just once. The bottom line is that when Detirot is behind, they will open things up, and he will have an opportunity to go over this number. Let’s stay hot and cash in to kick off the day!
