Seattle Seahawks @ Detroit Lions – Sunday October 28, 2012 1:00PM EST

The Detroit Lions have become exceedingly difficult to predict in this 2012 season. The NFL betting experts watched as the Lions came back and beat the Philadelphia Eagles in week six but could not pull off the comeback over the Bears in week seven. The Lions look completely out of sync and this team should be ripe for the picking by a defense like the one that Seattle has. But there is something about the Detroit Lions that refuses to allow bettors and fans to give up on the team. The Lions are one or two losses away from getting knocked out of playoff contention, but Detroit is not quite ready to pack it in just yet.

The Seattle Seahawks could be called one of the big surprises of 2012, but it is really just a matter of playing to its strengths. The sports betting experts knew that Seattle had a good defense last season. There were some minor changes made to the defense, but that strong core remained intact heading into this season. The biggest mistake the Seahawks made was letting veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck sign with Tennessee. Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson has stepped in and filled that void left behind by Hasselbeck. Wilson and the Seahawks are getting their fair share of lucky calls this season, but there is a good team developing in Seattle.

Why the Lions Will Win

The Lions are still searching for a running game amid the news that running back Jahvid Best may have to retire due to concussion issues. The Lions have two or three young running backs that have promise, but also have fumble problems. The sportsbook experts will expect the Lions to exploit the weakest part of the Seattle defense in this game and that would be the secondary. With quarterback Matt Stafford and wide receiver Calvin Johnson desperately in need of a breakout game for the season, look for the Lions to turn this game into an aerial display.

Why the Seahawks Will Win

With no running game to watch for, the Seahawks’ defense can key in on quarterback Matthew Stafford and stuff the Detroit offense. That leaves this game as a battle between the Seattle offense and the Detroit defense. The Detroit defense has stepped it up lately, but it may be too inconsistent to keep Russell Wilson and the Seattle offense off the board.

The Bottom Line

The Detroit Lions need a win for a lot of reasons and that win can come against the Seattle Seahawks. This will be another close game as Detroit has yet to develop the touch for racking up points that it had last season. But, in the end, the Lions should be able to come out with a victory in front of its home fans.

Pick: Detroit Lions
