If you like to make Over/Under wagers that often remove the guesswork of often difficult ATS picks, then you’re going to have a great chance to cash in with a winning O/U wager when Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions host Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in their Week 3 matchup on Sunday.
With the weekend quickly approaching, let’s get started.

New England Patriots
New England beat Houston 27-20 in their regular season opener two weeks ago, but Tom Brady and company got overpowered in their 31-20 Week 2 road loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Pats played Under their 49.5-point total in their opener while playing Over the 44.5-point total against Jacksonville.
Detroit got completely embarrassed in their 48-17 season-opening loss against the Jets and then followed that up with a narrow 30-27 Week 2 loss at San Francisco.
The Lions have played Over the total in both of their two games this season. New England is 3-3 O/U in their last six games while the Over is 3-0 in Detroit’s last three regular season games.
Expert Pick and Prediction
The Under is 5-0 in New England’s last 5 road games against a team with a losing home record, 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 5-2 in New England’s last seven games following a straight up loss. The Over is 5-1 in Detroit’s last 6 games following a straight up loss, 8-2 in their last 10 home games and 8-3 in their last 11 games overall.
With the way the Lions have played defense so far this season, I’m thinking Tom Brady and the Pats are going to top the 30-point plateau in this one. I like the Over and you should too!
Predicted Score: Patriots 31 Lions 24
