LIONS @ CARDINALS NFL NO BRAINER
Detroit vs. Arizona,
09/08/2019 16:25 EDT,
Score: 27 - 27
Point Spread: -2½/-110 Detroit
The Detroit Lions look like a solid road favorite at Arizona Sunday afternoon.
The Cardinals 3-13 record was the worst in NFL last year, and this should be another tough season unless they can pull a rabbit out of their hat and surprise everyone. This contest will be the NFL debut for coach Kliff Kingsbury AND for No. 1 overall pick quarterback Kyler Murray as they're both coming straight from college football.
They'll face a Detroit side off a 6-10 season, but its defense ranked 10th overall and eighth against the pass and one must like its chances of stopping a rookie quarterback.
The Lions will have a new-look offense with first-year coordinator Darrell Bevell. "He likes to run the ball. I play running back ... That should mean good things." Kerryon Johnson said. A more balanced offense should indeed be a good thing, taking the pressure off quarterback Matthew Stafford who'll be ready to go off again after coming off the worst statistical year of his career in a season.
8* play on Detroit Lions.
