There’s a system play developing here at Pickswise, if you haven’t picked up on it yet. Has it always worked? No. Will it work more than not? Yes. That system play is fading Josh McDaniels. As long as he’s a head coach in the NFL, there will be an opportunity to make some money with your wagers. The Raiders, even at 3-4, are a complete mirage. They were beneficiaries of brutally bad quarterback play with the Packers and Patriots in back-to-back games and the schedule is about to get much tougher, starting on Monday night.

The Lions were basically blanked by Baltimore, but duds happen in the NFL, especially when you’re on the road. Perhaps we should downgrade Detroit’s defense a bit, but that’s more of a discussion at the macro level. For Monday night, the Lions should feast on this underperforming Raiders offensive line. Davante Adams is frustrated, the team continues to not be able to get much going with Josh Jacobs, and the defense is the definition of mediocre outside of Maxx Crosby. If the Lions are fortunate enough to get running back David Montgomery back from injury, this really becomes my favorite bet of the year. The Lions are in a new position of being such big favorites here, but there’s a reason. This is a spot Dan Campbell, a premier motivator, should have his team ready for, and my bet is that the Lions don’t leave any room for doubt against a flailing Raiders squad.

Lions -8 available at time of publishing. Playable to -9.5.
