It’s not surprising to find the Detroit Lions as home underdogs to the Cincinnati Bengals in the Week 6 catfight at Ford Field. It might be more of a surprise that the winless Lions are only 3.5-point dogs to the visitors from the south on I-75.
The Bengals open up at 3.5-point favorites in Detroit at Tipico Sportsbook. Cincinnati is 3-2 and lost in overtime to the Green Bay Packers in Week 5. That game featured five missed field goals in the fourth quarter and overtime before Green Bay’s Mason Crosby finally made the game-winner. The Lions also lost on a game-winning field goal by Minnesota’s Greg Joseph on the game’s final play in Week 5.
