The Detroit Lions have now suffered two losses in a row, but the good news is that they're still slight favorites heading into their Week 8 matchup against the Denver Broncos.
SB Nation's odds partner OddsShark has held steady across the board with the Lions as three-point favorites in this road game. That line hasn't changed since the opening. The over/under has dropped slightly since opening from 43.5 to its current 41.5. It's unclear whether the offenses of Broncos QB Tim Tebow and the questionable ankle of the Lions' Matthew Stafford will be able to combine for that sort of output.
With injuries to Stafford and Jahvid Best, and the very slight point spread by the experts, this game should be anything but a walk in the park for the Lions. They're hoping to head into their bye week a satisfying four games over .500, especially after their hot start. They're going to be doing their best to keep their momentum rolling.
