NFL: Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Today, both the Los Angeles Chargers and Detroit Lions ended regulation tied at 24. The Chargers emerged with a home victory over the Indianapolis Colts thanks to a game-winning Austin Ekeler touchdown. The Lions, on the other hand, walked away from their game with the Arizona Cardinals with only a tie to their name.

Next Sunday, the Chargers will travel to Detroit to face Matt Patricia’s Lions, and the opening line from BetOnline has the Bolts as 2.5-point favorites over the home team. The over/udner for the game sits at 47, a number that both teams’ week 1 games eclipsed by 1 and 7 points respectively. Lines often move throughout the week leading up to a game, so if you like the Chargers by a field goal on the road, now is your opportunity to make that bet.

For reference, BetOnline had the Chargers as 6-point favorites against the Colts today with a 45-point over/under.
