While the Detroit Lions failed to win a second straight game for the first time this year, they managed to be the underdogs. It may sound strange, but Leos continue to look better every week and for the past month or so. Sure, they’re still a pretty bad team, but are they a two-game winless team anymore? While that may be their season win total when the season ends, they don’t play as a team with 12 losses and one draw.
The Seahawks, on the other hand, are looking worse and worse with each passing week. They have lost two in a row to the Rams and Bears and an off-season rebuild is imminent. The Bears loss cemented Seattle as a bottom-of-the-table team and therefore a team that can be beaten by the likes of Detroit.
Here are the odds for this Week 17 battle of the underdogs, powered by WynnBET Sportsbook.
Neither the Lions nor the Seahawks are good teams. Something that I couldn’t have predicted the season I’ll be talking about in Week 17. With Russell Wise at center, plus DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, this would be a huge insult. This trio has performed poorly and the defense is the worst in years.
These two will automatically go up against most of the second team but they’re not playing at the level we’ve come to expect from them. Ditto for Wilson and Pete Carroll as the entire unit is disintegrating at the seams.
The difference between the two teams is that the Lions continue to play hard while the Seahawks seem to have given up. I’m not willing to bet on LIons winning this game outright but they’re not going to make the Seahawks easy.
Pick: Detroit Lions +6.5 (-110)
