The Buffalo Bills will look to build off of a mighty impressive 2020 season, and it all starts this Friday, as they travel to Ford Field to take on the Detroit Lions who are not exactly predicted to do much this year.
Jared Goff will be hoping to surprise some people with this Lions team, but based on the current roster construction it is very tough to see them doing anything in this NFC North division, where they will likely finish last.
This Detroit team will likely be hungry and motivated to play hard in this preseason game, as I am sure they are sick of everyone saying how bad they are going to be and they would like nothing more then to pick up a win against one of the favorites for the Lombardi Trophy.
The Buffalo Bills have all the pieces to make a deep run this year, and they just secured their future by giving Josh Allen a healthy extension which makes him one of the highest paid QB’s in the entire league.
Buffalo is a well coached team, so I expect them to come into this game ready to go, but they will be playing around with formations and testing out for roster spots, so I do not think they will come into this game with the intensity that the Lions will.
The big positive or the Bills is that Mitchell Trubisky will probably get plenty of the run here and he is a borderline NFL starter, so if they win here he will likely be a big reason why.
This Lions team will be awful this year, but they should have a chance of winning this game off the back of some serious coaching from Dan Campbell who no doubt will have these guys ready to go and given they are at home in front of their home fans the -1 line is not looking all that bad.
The one other concern I have about this Detroit Lions team coming into this game is the amount of Q’s I am seeing on the depth chart, as guys like Hockenson, Perriman, Cephus and a host of others all come into this game with their status still up in the air.
We also should get our first look at Penei Sewell who fell to the Lions at 7 in the draft while Nick Williams and Joel Heath will most likely miss this one which is not all too impactful in the end.
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Detroit Lions -1
The motivation factor is the biggest thing for me here, as these guys will be gunning to get this victory and I do doubt that the Bills will be able to match that intensity in their first game of the season.
We will likely get a heavy dose of David Blough and Tim Boyle here who are not the most amazing options ever considering they will likely be dueling it out with Trubisky for a decent amount of this game, but -1 does still seem like the play considering they get this one at home and I am more concerned with defensive motivation.
Take the Detroit Tigers against the spread -1 this Friday and cash in on NFL preseason action.
