Reason for Detroit Lions vs Oakland Raiders

Detroit Lions +120

Detroit managed to avoid extending their losing skid to four games as they did just enough to escape with a win over the Giants last week. Fourth-quarter meltdowns have been an issue for the Lions this season as they’ve let a lead slip through their fingers in three different games this season.

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford completed 25 of 32 passes for 342 yards, 3 touchdowns and an interception. The Lions leading receiver was Kenny Golladay, who caught 6 passes for 123 yards and 2 touchdowns.

The Lions have given up better than four yards a carry in six of their seven games and have given up more than 100 yards in six contests. Against the Cardinals in the season opener, they allowed 112 yards and a 4.9 yard per carry average. Those numbers spiked to 137 yards and a 5.5 yard per carry average against the Chargers before coming down to 127 yards and 4.2 yards per carry against the Eagles in week three.

The trade deadline was a quiet one for Detroit, which is confident it can remain relevant in the NFC playoff picture over the next two months. Stafford's solid play has coincided with a series of connections with wideout Kenny Golladay, who had 123 yards and two touchdowns against the Giants and has been targeted at least eight times in all but one game this year.

Oakland Raiders -140

The Oakland Raiders return home on Sunday for their match up with the Lions after losing 27-24 on the road last week against the Houston Texans. In the game against the Texans, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr threw for 285 yards and 3 touchdowns while completing 18 of 30 passes.

While the offense did their job for the most part, the defense was soft and let Aaron Rodgers carve them up last week. The Raiders now look to regroup in this contest after that beating. Oakland opened their season with a divisional road win on Monday Night Football (24-16) over Denver, two days after cutting Antonio Brown.

Derek Carr threw for 285 yards and three TDs at Houston last week, and the Fresno State product has seven scoring strikes with only one interception and one sack over his last four games. Rookie running back Josh Jacobs leads the league's seventh-ranked rushing attack with 620 yards, but he has been limited at practice due to a shoulder issue.

 

The Pick: Oakland Raiders -140, Under 50.5
