DETROIT +3 at MIAMI (41.5):

The Lions should be very comfortable in 65 degree weather at South Beach especially with the Dolphins in tank mode after losing at home to Buffalo and saying bye to their remote playoff chances. Miami is 1-6 ATS in Jimmy Buffet land this year, a stat that figures to cost HC Tony Sparano his job. Simply put, the QB play has been bad and the offense can’t score 20 points. Those are ingredients to back the Lions, who are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 weeks against the likes of the Giants, Patriots, Packers, Bears, Jets and Cowboys. Even though Detroit is horrible on the road, we like them here with points and on the money line. LIONS.
