Detroit is ready for primetime.
The Lions get the marquee match-up on the NFL schedule Monday night hosting the Las Vegas Raiders in a game that will kickoff at 8:15 at Ford Field. ESPN will have the full broadcast, and expect lots of attention paid to a 5-2 Lions team that leads its division.
You can find plenty of markets open on the contest on the best Michigan Sportsbooks. Caesars lists the Lions as 7.5-point favorites, slightly down from earlier in the week but that’s because of the uncertain status of Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. BetMGM Sportsbook has the over/under total at 46.5.
The Lions have a long, storied history on Monday Night Football. Let’s look at some key betting metrics entering the game.
