The Detroit Lions can almost taste their first playoff berth in over a decade, but first they need to get past the Oakland Raiders, who are fighting for their own playoff lives. The Lions head out to the west coast this week to take on a Raiders team that has been up and down over the past few weeks. The Lions have also struggled, and that is why SB Nation's official odds partner, Oddsshark, has given this game even odds:
The Detroit Lions have been scoring in bunches on the road and the opening total of 47.5 could be in jeopardy as they visit the Oakland Raiders in Week 15 NFL betting.The OVER is 9-2-1 in the past 12 Lion road games and it has been a trend in Raider December games as well (12-2-2 past 16 games).
The return of Ndamukong Suh from his two-game suspension should also be a big factor for Detroit.
