60 Max Power O:
The Sunday night football game for week 2 in the NFL features Detroit vs San Francisco. The 49ers made headlines in week one when they went into Green Bay and squashed the Packers. That win pushed this team to the top of the power rankings in the NFL and made the 49ers a super bowl favorite.
The Detroit Lions struggled in week one against the lowly St. Louis Rams. Quarterback Matthew Stafford turned the ball over on several occasions and this team needed a late drive to escape at home with a victory. The Lions will have to have a much better performance against the 49ers if they want to be considered contenders in the NFC.
The Detroit vs San Francisco betting line has the 49ers as (-7) point favorites and the total set at 47. The money line is 49ers (-300) and Bovada Sportsbook offers live betting on Sunday night football as well as prop bets.
Despite the betting line, it is important not to overreact early in the NFL season. This is exactly what has happened with both of th...
