The Detroit Lions had finally ended a road-losing streak that had lasted years. Then they didn’t. After wide receiver Calvin Johnson’s late touchdown reception was not allowed because he failed to secure the ball, the joy and excitement that head coach Jim Schwartz and the Lions felt was quickly replaced by bitter disappointment. Seven betting days later, Detroit must get back on an even keel emotionally in order to prevent beginning the season with a second straight loss, as the Philadelphia Eagles look to rebound from a loss of their own.

Online Sports Betting: Eagles – 3

Why To Bet On The Eagles?

The Eagles kicked off their post-Donovan McNabb era with an injury to the head of their starting quarterback, and an interception from his replacement, while the 10-year Eagles’ starter led the Washington Redskins to an opening Sunday night win over the division rival Dallas Cowboys in Prime time. With Kolb likely out, Philadelphia will turn to Michael Vick to try to capture some of the magic that made him a superstar during his days with the Atlanta Falcons. Vick will have a plethora of options as the Eagles have a solid young receiving core, and should be able to get the job done as long as Philadelphia could improve from the terrible defensive performance they put on in their home opener loss to the Green Bay Packers. The Eagles were torched for 321 yards and 27 touchdowns, by the Packers, and must be better when they face their second NFC North opponent in as many weeks.

Why To Bet On The Lions?

Expectations are higher in Motown after the Lions made some key acquisitions in the offseason, but after an opening game loss to the Bears, the mood may have quieted a little. An argument could be made Detroit should have been awarded a victory week one, but the truth is that their superstar wide receiver should have secured the potential game-winning touchdown catch with both hands rather than complete the play with one hand. Regardless of the outcome, the stigma that the Lions will underachieve on a regular basis still follows the team, and until they prove otherwise Detroit will not be given the benefit of the doubt. A young team must stick together and regroup from the loss in order to avoid going winless in two.

How The Game Will Play Out

After just over a year of football betting anticipation, Michael Vick will get his chance to prove that he can still lead an offense, and Detroit should be his coming out party. The Eagles will move the ball both on the ground and through the air, reminding people of Vick’s glory days with the Falcons, and the Eagles’ defense will regroup in enough time to make sure that the lead the offense gets holds up.
