For Lions vs. Bills, the model backs Buffalo (-9) to cover on the road. Recent Thanksgiving hasn’t been a happy one for Detroit, which has lost five straight games over the holiday. Only one player on the roster, left tackle Taylor Decker, has had a Thanksgiving win for the Lions.
As for Buffalo, one of their only weaknesses all year has been their running game outside of Josh Allen, but that looked like a strength in Week 11. Devin Singletary and James Cook each had 86 rushing yards. , and the Bills’ 164 in total. RB rushing yards were a season high.
The Bills are expected to produce more than 130 rushing yards Thursday, averaging 5.6 yards per carry. Allen will have a chance to build on his MVP bid as he is expected to throw for nearly 330 yards with multiple touchdowns. With the Bills’ productivity on offense, they’ll have hard practices and won’t give Detroit many chances to score points. The Lions are expected to score one touchdown less than their season average, and so Buffalo is covering well over 50% of the simulations. You can stream the game here.
