Lions Vs. 49ers: Vegas Says Odds Are Jim Schwartz And Jim Harbaugh Will Shake Hands

The "will they or won't they shake hands?" seemingly overblown controversy between Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz and San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh just got a little more serious -- Las Vegas now has a line on whether or not the two coaches, who famously got into a shouting matching stemming from a handshake from Harbaugh last year that Schwartz perceived as too aggressive, will shake hands after Sunday's game. From Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press:

The Bovada online sports book has put a line on whether Schwartz and Harbaugh will hug or shake hands after Sunday's Detroit Lions-San Francisco 49ers game.

As of 7 p.m. Friday, the odds were in favor of Schwartz and Harbaugh exchanging pleasantries on the field (minus-500 they do; plus-300 they don't).

As for who will win the game, Vegas currently has the 49ers as 4.5-point favorites.
