Line less than 3 is good news for Skins. I think $ will go the way of Detroit tho. Coming off a bye gives a big advantage to the home team.

I think the line has dropped to +1 for the Skins.

That's home-field-advantage-it's-a-crap-shoot line. I have the Lions winning only because the Redskins are know to have let downs.

The point spread isnt designed to predict who wins by how many, its designed to even out the betting action on both teams.

Right, which I get. I bet a lot. But wouldn't you be more inclined to bet the Lions if they were getting a point or two?

A lot of people dont get that, they think the line is designed to predict the final score margin.

I would but I think the betting public doesnt trust the Skins since they tend to play down to their opponents. I was shocked to see the Lions we giving points but nobody know better than the book-makers about these spreads.

Michael Wilbon always points this out on PTI & it's worth repeating. I think the line makes sense, most conservative gamblers would take the skins w/this spread.

They are coming off a bye but we are going into a bye, I think that's often overlooked, teams may play well because they are given incentives by their coaches for the bye week, or simply because it's psychologically easier to give max effort knowing that you'll get more rest afterward.

Bye week matters more I think if you have an elite coach and Jim Swartz isnt one of those at this point. I do however worry about this game especially Calvin Johnson having a huge game. I think Shanahan makes little Shanny pound the ball down the Lions throats, and torain has a big game and we win 27-17.

Right, and it's got nothing to do with respect, or a team getting dissed.

I'm not surprised -- there's a lot of playmakers on that Detroit Lions team and there hasn't been one game, IMO, that we should have won all season with the exception of the Houston game. Every one has been the other team losing, not us winning -- we should prepare for this game like we're going to play a division rival.

Our D will be motivated and will force Turnovers again. Stafford won't beat us twice in a row!
What team have you been watching? Shouldn't we have dominated the Rams? No way we win by 2 scores, like all our games it will come down the last play with either team having the chance to win an ugly game.

Excellent point but wins are wins so I'm fine with this season so far!

I really get tired of this take. Teams win or lose each week, it's that simple. There's no style points given for blowouts, and none taken away for close wins. You are what your record says you are.
