|Under 51 (-107) @ pinnacle|
I'm playing on Houston/Detroit UNDER the total. Given the current form of these offenses, I believe this number is generously high. The Lions didn't score a single point last time out, getting blanked 20-0 at Carolina. Not too good, considering that those same Panthers had been lit up for 46 points the previous week. The Lions would manage a mere 185 total yards. The Lions are now averaging 22.7 ppg. The Texans can relate. They, too, are averaging just 22.7 ppg. Last time on the road, they scored just seven. On the other side, the Houston defense has made some strides of late; they've allowed an average of 15 ppg the past two games. While I won with the 'over' in last year's Thanksgiving Day game at Detroit, we're working with a much higher number here. I say that it proves to be too high.
