The Lions’ defense had a miserable day against Seattle but must relish the opportunity to face a pathetic Patriots offense in Week 5. To help Detroit get back on track, BetMGM is giving Lions fans a risk-free $1,000 bet to use as you please.

Lions vs Patriots Prediction and Pick
I genuinely can’t believe the Lions are underdogs to these Patriots. Sure, New England hung tough in an overtime loss to Green Bay. To that I say: so what?
Detroit handily leads the NFL in points per game (35) while the Patriots are 24th (18.5) and had to use a third-string quarterback against the Packers. It worked out for New England bettors, but this kind of offensive instability gives the Lions huge value as underdogs.
The biggest advantage for the Lions comes in the run game. New England ranks 29th in opponent yards per rush attempt (5.1), while Detroit…leads the league (5.9). Jamaal Williams looked every bit as good as D’Andre Swift behind the Lions’ stellar offensive line, and I’d make Detroit a three-point favorite as a result.
New England is 2-5-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last eight games, while the Lions are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 as underdogs. Feel confident backing Detroit in one of my favorite bets of the week.
