Detroit Lions @ San Francisco 49ers – Sunday September 16, 2012 8:20PM EST

The one group of people that was not impressed with the Detroit Lions' season opener last week was the Detroit Lions. The best online betting sites expected Detroit to come out swinging to start the 2012 season. Instead, the Lions barely beat the St. Louis Rams in what wound up looking like a clinic by the Lions on how not to be an NFC playoff contender. If it wasn't for some last minute heroics by quarterback Matthew Stafford, the Lions would be looking at a 0-1 record to start the season.

The San Francisco 49ers looked very focused in its impressive opening week win over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. While the NFL betting experts watched the Packers struggle with the same problems the team had in the playoffs last year, the 49ers showed that it has learned a lot about how to win in the NFL and how to improve over the previous season. As the Packers were sent home wondering about how its season will turn out, the 49ers are preparing to face the Detroit Lions in a home opener that promises to have a lot of fireworks.

Why the Lions Will Win

The Detroit Lions is a very talented football team made up of young players that are still trying to act like mature professionals. Ever since last year's handshake incident between Lions' head coach Jim Schwartz and 49ers' head coach Jim Harbaugh, the sport betting experts have been wondering if Schwartz has the right temperament to coach a team like the Lions. In this game, the questions about the Lions' ability to compete in the NFC and Schwartz' ability to get his players under control will all be answered, and Lions fans will like the answer they see.

Why the 49ers Will Win

The San Francisco 49ers already look more focused and determined this year than the team ever looked last season. There is a tremendous amount of talent on the San Francisco roster, and head coach Jim Harbaugh has proven that he knows how to use that talent. This game will be an early test for the 49ers that, despite the final outcome, will go a long way to galvanizing this team into becoming the playoff and Super Bowl contender that it should be.

The Bottom Line

The Detroit Lions have an aerial attack that will be a little difficult for the 49ers to control. San Francisco's pass rush will give the Lions' offensive line all it can handle, but the line should be able to keep the 49ers off of quarterback Matthew Stafford. In the end, the Lions will show that it is definitely a team to be reckoned with in the 2012 season.

Pick: Detroit Lions
