The Lions are the people’s choice to win, and the sport books of Vegas are dead set on the 49ers. Both teams can win, and the key component will be the Lions front four. If they can get pressure on Purdy, they have a chance. It’s that simple. Detroit averaged 27 points a game and the 49ers averaged 28.
Purdy can be forced to rush the ball at times. Detroit can stop the run and flat pass but are vulnerable down the field. On offense the Lions can run against the 49ers. This game will be decided in the trenches on which team can apply pressure to the others QB.
San Francisco has the talent and Detroit has the heart of a Lion! Looking at the 2 teams, it’s easy to see why the 49ers are 7-point favorites. They are home, have the big names, and possible MVP in Christian McCaffrey.
We are going to use the 3 and 7 rule and buy down the game to – 5 ½ . If you’re not familiar with this golden rule, then copy and paste this to your brain. If you are betting on pro football, and your team is favored to win by 3 and 7 or more, try to buy it down under these numbers in case the game is close. You will pay for the privilege; however, it would be worth your time and effort to see how many games ended by a touchdown or less.
