The Lions are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games, 5-11 ATS in their last 16 vs. NFC and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The Panthers are 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 vs. NFC, 1-6 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 home games. The over is 5-2 in Lions last 7 vs. NFC. The over is 9-3 in Panthers last 12 games in November. The Lions are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
The Detroit Lions continue to struggle defensively, but they continue to find ways to win games and they've done some of their best work on the road. The Carolina Panthers are riding a five-game losing streak and have allowed 25 or more points in each of their last four games. This is likely going to be a high scoring game with little defensive stops and a game that's decided in the fourth quarter. However, we're getting free points with the better team and laying chalk with a team that's lost five straight doesn't seem ideal.
Give me the Lions and the free field goal, a game they should win outright.
