The Detroit Lions are somehow still in contention for the playoffs. While it’s extremely unlikely for them to join the postseason, the Lions are feeling good after finally scoring a win. Will they pull off another victory in Week 14? Or will the Denver Broncos avoid getting upset at home? Check out our preview of this Lions-Broncos Week 14 game below.
Betting Preview for the Detroit Lions vs Denver Broncos Regular Season Week 14 Game on December 12, 2021
Where: GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City
When: Sunday, December 12, 2021, 4:05 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Detroit Lions (+7.5)
Regular Season Record: 1-10
Say what you want to say about the Lions, but at least they are not going to finish the 2021 NFL season without a win, as they secured their first victory of the season last Sunday, beating the Minnesota Vikings at home, 29-27. Detroit finally has the momentum to build on heading into its next game. Things seem to get even more favorable for the Lions because their upcoming opponents did not look good at all in a loss in Week 13. Jared Goff passed for three touchdowns and an interception on 25/41 completions against the Vikings. The Lions also won that game even without running back D’Andre Swift, who has the potential to return to action in Week 14 from a shoulder injury he suffered on Thanksgiving Day.
The Lions are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall.
Betting on the Denver Broncos (-7.5)
Regular Season Record: 6-6
After a huge 28-13 home win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 12, the Broncos fell prey to the Kansas City Chiefs on the road in Week 13, 22-9. Teddy Bridgewater struggled in that game, as he connected on just 22-of-40 passes for a touchdown and two interceptions. However, running back Javonte Williams shined in the absence of Melvin Gordon. Williams rushed for 102 yards on 23 carries and also recorded 76 receiving yards and a touchdown on six catches and nine targets. Gordon missed that game with a hip injury but is currently tagged with a questionable label, so there’s a chance he could return to action for the matchup against the Lions. In any case, the Broncos should look to run in Week 14, as the Lions have a run defense that is just 28th in the league, with 131.1 rushing yards surrendered per contest. Denver also has a decent defense that should be able to take care of the error-prone Lions.
The Broncos, who are allowing 18.2 points per game, are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven home games versus a team with a losing record on the road.
The Broncos win, 20-17.
