The 3-6 Detroit Lions and 7-2 New York Giants resume one of the NFL‘s longest rivalries this Sunday in an NFC tilt.

Detroit leads the all-time series 24-21-1, after winning three of the past four contests. The teams first met in 1930 when the Lions were known as the Portsmouth Spartans. 

Here’s everything you need from a betting perspective on the Lions-Giants game, from the point spread, moneyline, total Over/Under and expert pick (odds via FOX Bet):

Detroit rallies to beat Chicago 31-30

Jared Goff’s 236 passing yards helped the Lions beat the Bears.

Detroit Lions


New York Giants


Pick via FOX Sports Betting Analyst Jason McIntyre:

Dan Campbell hadn’t won a road game as coach of the Lions, but the two-year skid on the highway ended Sunday with a one-point win over Chicago. Sure, they trailed by 14 in the fourth quarter and were a negative 1.5 in yards per play, but they rode a buttoned-up game (only two penalties, zero turnovers) against a bad Chicago defense to win. 

It’ll be more difficult against the Giants, who lead the league in blitz percentage (34.4%). Jared Goff has only faced Wink Martindale-led defenses twice, losing a close one last year and then getting blown out in 2019 with the Rams

The Giants are 7-2, but they struggled to pull away from the Texans last week as Houston imploded in the red zone (1-for-6). If it feels like all Giants games are close, it’s because … they are. All seven of their wins have come by eight points or fewer. As long as temperatures don’t dip into the 20s, I can ride with the Lions here if you can get the hook. If not, it’s a pass. 

PICK: Lions (if line hits +3.5 at FOX Bet) to lose by fewer than 3.5 points (or win outright)
