Raiders Vs. Lions Odds: Lines Virtually Even

The Oakland Raiders are coming off a demoralizing loss in which they were dominated by the Green Bay Packers, and next they're playing host to another tough NFC North team, the Detroit Lions. Oakland has been bit by the injury bug lately, and it's definitely cost them - though it's unlikely they would have beat the Packers anyway - their playoff positioning. Detroit is also battling for playoff position, currently slotted as the final seed in the NFC, and will not be a pushover, especially with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh back in the lineup.

Odds Shark has posted some odds for the game, and the teams come out as even in the spread. Detroit is favored online slightly in some cases, and when it comes to point favorites, they're never more than one-and-a-half point favorites, with Top Bet and Bet Online having them as just one-point favorites.

Maybe that's because Oakland is looking like they might be getting a little bit closer to being healthy. Or maybe it's because the Lions are just penalized so much. The site cautions against picking the Lions on the over due to Oakland likely playing tough coming off a humiliating loss. It's probably good advice.
