The only bad thing about Sunday night for Lion fans is that they failed to cover the spread.
Detroit’s 24-23 win over the LA Rams was vindication and a celebration for Lion fans years in the making. The fact that it came against former star Lions QB Matthew Stafford made it extra sweet. Stafford was booed early, cheered late, and demonstrated his class and toughness in defeat.
Michigan sportsbooks say the Lions are 0-1 against the spread in the playoffs, but they’re 1-0 where it counts and moving on. FanDuel, DraftKings Sportsbook and Caesars will have extensive markets on every NFL Divisional Round playoff game this weekend.
And thanks to the Cowboys annual playoff collapse, the Lions are home again on Sunday. Here are the heroes from the Lions win.
