Upstart Lions Visit Jets on Sunday With Playoffs at Stake

Lions vs. Jets CashBet Wagering Analysis

Detroit coach Dan Campbell had a rough betting on the NFL rookie campaign in 2021.  Detroit got off to a slow start in 2022.  Thus, Campbell was said to be on the hot seat.  But as the 2022 season has progressed, the Lions have become one of the NFL’s most improved teams.  Consider that Detroit’s improvement coincides with the better play of quarterback Jared Goff.  Last year Goff was embarrassed.  Cause by his former team, the Los Angeles Rams, winning the Super Bowl.  And doing so with former Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford.  But Goff may have the last laugh.

Lions vs. Jets CashBet Wagering Analysis  

Gamblers are noticing that Dan Campbell is making progress as the head coach of the Detroit Lions.  But the Jets will get the most online sportsbook public support as an improved home favorite in playoff contention.  In turn, the Lions will get the support of many sharps based on their better play and a road dog value price. 

Jets Grounded vs. Buffalo

Last game, the New York Jets lost 20-12 against the Buffalo Bills as 10-point road dogs.  The game went under the Betting on football total of 43.5.  New York has a record of 7-6 straight up, 8-5 against the spread, and 5-8 over/under the total.  New York ranks 19th for total offense, 15th for passing, 20th for rushing, and 22nd for scoring.  Defensively they rank 3rd overall, 4th against the pass, 13th against the rush, and 5th for points allowed.  Also, New York ranks 23rd for fewest turnovers lost and 16th for takeaways.

On the whole, The Bills were so relentless in getting after Mike White that the Jets quarterback was sidelined twice.  He missed one snap after being hit by Ed Oliver.  Late on, White missed a series while being evaluated for rib injuries after being struck by Matt Milano.

White returned each time and finished the game.  Subsequently, he boarded an ambulance for a trip to the hospital.  In turn, coach Robert Saleh said it was for precautionary reasons.  The Bills never trailed in a game.

Lions Maul the Vikings

Last game, the Detroit Lions won 34-23 against the Minnesota Vikings as 2.5-point home favorites.  The game went over the NFL bets total of 51.5.  Detroit has a record of 6-7 straight up, 9-4 against the spread, and 9-4 over/under the total.  Detroit ranks 4th for total offense, 7th for passing, 11th for rushing, and 5th for scoring.  Defensively they rank 31st overall, 30th against the pass, 26th against the rush, and 31st for points allowed.  Also, Detroit ranks 8th for fewest turnovers lost and 11th for takeaways.

Jared Goff was behind an offensive line that gave him plenty of time.  Hence he took advantage of big-play receivers the Lions added for him this season.  Goff had a 41-yard pass to rookie Jameson Williams.  And then a 48-yard pass to DJ Chark for two of his three touchdown throws in the first half.  The surging Lions got a big win over the NFC North-leading Vikings.

Minnesota needed a win or tie to clinch the division title.  Kirk Cousins threw for 425 yards.  Including a franchise-record 223 to Justin Jefferson on 11 catches.  But Dalvin Cook ran for just 23 yards on 15 carries.  Of great concern was that Minnesota couldn’t stop Goff.

As a result, the Lions have won five of six.  Which is their best stretch since their last postseason appearance in 2016.  Detroit has scored 25-plus points in five straight games for the first time since 1954.  Previously, Detroit traded up to draft Williams 12th overall.  In addition, they signed Chark to a $10 million, one-year deal in free agency.
