Detroit Lions – Arizona Cardinals Sept 8 Prediction
This is the opening game for 2018 Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray, who was the number one pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after spurning the Oakland A's. This is also a new era with Kliff Kingsbury taking over as head coach. In Detroit, Matt Patricia is building a defensive unit that could be among the best in the league, which may mean trouble for a rookie quarterback.
The public is piling on the Lions: Detroit is taking almost three-quarters of the action. But Arizona is 8-2 against the spread at home against the Lions.
Another tough game to call. With the public so much behind the Lions, Arizona could pull off a slight upset, 28-24.
