Last year, the 49ers and the Lions played in what amounted to be a very tight tussle. There’s just no reason for us to believe that this will be any different this year. San Francisco is probably too overrated right now after going to Lambeau Field and scoring a victory, though we know that this is probably one of the best teams in the league. The Lions are a better team than they looked like last week when they took on the Rams and just barely lived to tell about it, and we think that we’ll see more out of QB Matt Stafford this week than we did last week. Stafford didn’t do all that well last year in this game either, but he is probably going to have a 300+ yard effort. The question is whether the DBs for the 49ers are going to be able to stick with the Megatron and the rest of the Detroit receiving options. We do think that San Francisco is going to win this game, but to do so by more than a touchdown just doesn’t feel like something that will happen.
Lions @ 49ers Pick: Detroit Lions +7
