TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9TH
#470 NEW ENGLAND (-3′) over Detroit at 1 PM EST
Off a pair of straight up losses to the Ravens and Packers, the Patriots will return home and do a number on the defenseless Lions. Detroit’s Swiss cheese stop unit has surrendered a grand total of 141 total points through four games and the Motor City Kitty’s will have all kinds of trouble in Foxboro. Let’s take a look inside the numbers.
When coming off two or more straight up losses, the Pats have responded by notching a solid 15-3 SU and 12-6 ATS record in their last 18 battles. In addition, since 2001, New England has assembled a respectable 70-25 SU and 56-38-1 ATS mark when matched up against NFC opposition including a stunning 36-7 SU and 30-12-1 ATS in this run lined up versus a foe that arrives without steam off a straight up loss. Lastly, when hosting an NFL opponent that played in the comforts of home last, head coach Bill Belichick’s crew owns a lucrative 97-19 SU and 73-39-4 ATS record including a sweet 73-34-4 ATS provided the Patriots are not favored by -17.5 or more.
As stated earlier, this Lions defense has been atrocious. Detroit is allowing an average of 35.3 points and 455.5 total yards per game this season and they’ll have trouble stopping New England in this contest. To make matters worse, when coming off a straight up loss as a home favorite, the Lions have been pitiful source of income posting a miserable 15-42 SU and 20-33-4 ATS record including a dismal 7-18 SU and 7-17-1 ATS provided their opponent busts in without steam off a straight up loss.
With Mac Jones still out with an ankle, rookie quarterback Bailey Zappe will step in and lead the Pats to this win and cover. Take New England. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
