Pro Football Betting: TENNESSEE TITANS at DETROIT LIONS (9/18)

PRO FOOTBALL — September 18

TENNESSEE at DETROIT
(Line: Lions -6, Total 48) – You have to be impressed by the way Detroit ran its offense against the Colts last Sunday, with 40 yards, and you have to take note that since Jim Bob Cooter took over as the offensive coordinator, this team has won seven of its last nine regular season games. But at the same time we have to recognize the improvements that are being made in Tennessee’s stop unit under the fabled Dick LeBeau, as they held Minnesota without an offensive touchdown and limited Adrian Peterson to just 31 yards on 19 carries. And until the Lions can demonstrate they have a harder edge to their own defensive crew, we like the chances of Tennessee to establish their “exotic smashmouth” behind DeMarco Murray (and maybe even Derrick Henry).
