On Sunday, the Detroit Lions will look to move to 2-2 on the season when they take on the New Orleans Saints at Ford Field.
When the opening point spread was released last Sunday, it had the Saints favored by 5.5 points, which though I thought was high, was not surprising.
But throughout the week, the spread slowly moved down, and then, when the Saints announced on Friday that they will be without 6 starters, the line dropped all the way down to Saints -3, where it currently sits. (NOTE: The spread was taken down early Sunday morning following news that a Saints player had tested positive for COVID-19. That test was a false-positive and the line is back up and is unchanged from Saturday)
Nation, do you think the Saints should still be favored in this game, despite being without 27% of their starting lineup?
