Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford missed last Sunday’s game in Chicago and it cost the Lions. Stafford’s 136-game starting streak came to an end in that game thanks to an injured back, and it’s not yet known if he will suit up against Dallas this week, so that’s why there’s no line for this contest. There was a marked drop in production in the Lions’ offense with Brian Hoyer at quarterback. The team is averaging 24 points per game but scored only 13 in the seven-point loss to the Bears. Dallas has feasted on losing teams this year, going 4-1 against sub-.500 teams. Not only that, but there is also a big offense vs. defense mismatch here. The Cowboys lead the NFL with 437 yards of offense per game, while the Lions are just 30th on defense with 402 yards allowed per game. Without Stafford, the Lions may not have the horses to keep up with the big Cowboys playmakers. Once a line is set, take a close look at it, because Detroit hasn’t covered the spread in each of their last four games. The Cowboys are also 5-1 ATS in their last six road games against NFC opponents.
