Lions vs. Steelers prediction: Detroit can hang with Pittsburgh’s dreadful offense

Dave Tuley, senior reporter at VSiN.com, is in his fourth season with The Submit’s Bettor’s Handbook. His handicapping pieces appear in VSiN’s online journal, Point Unfold Weekly. 

Detroit Lions (+8.5) over PITTSBURGH STEELERS:

The Lions were on a bye closing week, which modified into correct as they surely looked dreadful of their 44-6 loss to the Eagles on Halloween. Even within the occasion that they’re the NFL’s lone winless team of workers at 0-8, they’re 4-4 ATS and had been aggressive at events (they would possibly perhaps maybe composed possess crushed the Ravens — the Steelers’ AFC North rival — and they also also lined versus the 49ers, Vikings and Rams). The fact the Steelers couldn’t build away the Bears — the Lions’ NFC North rival — surely bodes effectively for Detroit right here. I’m now not unnerved relating to the Steelers scoring a ton of parts (they moderate true 20.1 ppg), so Jared Goff and the Lions would possibly perhaps well well composed be in a space to stick spherical and get the cover, true as in these utterly different video games.

NEW YORK JETS (+13) over Buffalo Bills:

I don’t query the Bills to play as badly as they did of their loss at Jacksonville, but there are numerous reasons to declare the Jets can hang with them. For one, the Bills don’t possess a running game worship the one the Colts used to achieve 45 versus the Jets closing week. The Jets even possess a correct pass bustle to stress Josh Allen and drive him into errors. Within the intervening time, the Jets’ offense come what would possibly perhaps well has stepped up with Mike White (hi there, I didn’t ogle it coming either). Moreover, as heinous because the Jets were closing year and as correct because the Bills were, Buffalo received true 27-17 and 18-10 of their 2020 meetings, so I envision equivalent results, with the Bills winning by 10 parts or fewer. 

Final week: 2-0. Broncos (W). Titans (W). 

Season: 13-5.
