The Philadelphia Eagles suffered another ugly loss in Week 7, this time falling 33-22 to the Las Vegas Raiders.
But the Birds are about to get a bit of a reprieve.
The next opponent on the 2-5 Eagles' schedule is the only remaining winless team in the NFL: the Detroit Lions.
Detroit dropped to 0-7 with a 28-19 loss to the Rams in Los Angeles on Sunday. Quarterback Jared Goff, who was called out by head coach Dan Campbell following a brutal Week 6 performance, threw a fourth-quarter interception in the red zone that thwarted Detroit’s upset bid.
Despite the Lions’ ugly record, the Eagles can’t take them lightly. The Lions have come close to a victory a few times, and the Eagles certainly won’t want to be the team that allows them to secure that elusive first win.
Here’s a full betting preview for the Week 8 Eagles-Lions game at Ford Field:
Eagles vs. Lions Moneyline, Spread and Total
Line: Eagles -3
Eagles team total O/U: 26.5
Lions team total O/U: 22.5
Moneyline: Eagles -180 | Lions +150
For the first time this season, the Eagles are favored in a game. Despite being the road team, Philadelphia opened as a three-point favorite over Detroit.
These two teams’ most recent meeting came in September 2019 when the Lions left the Linc with a 27-24 win. The Lions have won the last three head-to-head matchups, with the Eagles’ last victory coming in 2013.
