BETTINGGAME ODDS: DOLPHINS:+3-125 LIONS: -3+105 This really does have all the makings of a field goal game, and the bookies have given that 3-point home field edge to the Lions. It’s not really a surprise to see the Lions at 4-4 ATS this season, especially when you consider how close the majority of their games have been. If you take a little look further back, though, you will see that they generally do well coming off a bye week. The Dolphins are 5-3 ATS, and are 3-2 in games where the line is set between -3 and +3. They have a winning record ATS on the road this season, which, when combined with what we see from the Lions, points to a game that is going to be close. If I had to pick one game that was going to be a push this weekend, it would be this one. I like the Lions to win a close one, but it could certainly be a last second field goal that wins it. I would take the Lions SU, and would take the Dolphins at +3.
