Week 12 NFL Opening Lines – Detroit Lions Open Up as Big Favorites over Buccaneers


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look to win their third straight NFL Picks game when Sunday comes around as they take to the road to face Detroit Lions. It was looking for a while like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers might be the worst team in the NFL but in the past couple of weeks they have played well and won. They will be facing a Detroit Lions team that is coming off a game in which they blew a big lead against the Pittsburgh Steelers. This game opened up at Diamond sportsbook with the Detroit Lions listed as 8.5 point favorites with the total at 48.Let’s look at the matchup and Week 12 NFL Opening Lines.

Week 12 NFL Opening LinesTampa Bay Buccaneers 2-8 SU, 4-6 ATS -The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won two straight games and suddenly they look like a good football team. Mike Glennon is playing well at quarterback and Bobby Rainey has been a revelation at running back. Their last two wins did come against Miami and Atlanta and both games were at home so it will be interesting to see if they can go on the road and win.

Detroit Lions 6-4 SU, 5-5 ATS -The Detroit Lions gave away a win last week as they blew a big lead against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The team is fortunate to be playing in the NFC North where no one is pulling away. The offense has a lot of talent with Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson but the defense is suspect and the team is poorly coached. They should outclass the Bucs in this one but again, this is the Detroit Lions.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Detroit Lions Series -The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won six of the last ten in this series but they have dropped the past two, both at home. The teams have split their last ten in Detroit with three of the last five going over.

NFL Week 12 Picks -This is a game that the Detroit Lions should win but I don’t trust them laying points. They may have a hangover from last week’s collapse. I will take the points with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in this one and also play the game over the NFL Week 12 odds.
