Jared Goff and the Lions host Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars in a Week 13 showdown.
The Lions’ three-game winning streak was snapped on Thanksgiving against the Bills. Detroit, who have led straight 3-1 in their last four games, are a perfect 4-0 against the spread at this stretch and have been a great team to assist at betting windows over the last month.
Dubbed underdogs in 10 out of 11 games by odds makers, Dan Campbell’s club have thrived in that role, posting a 7-3 ATS mark over that span. However, bettors are sighted in week 13 no points as the lions are listed as betting favorites (-2.5) against the Jaguars.
Jacksonville, fresh off their 28-27 upset against the Ravens, will be looking for their third win in four games after suffering a five-game losing streak from SU and ATS in Weeks 4-8. Coming from last season, the Jaguars have recorded a disappointing 1-7-1 ATS (11.1%) in their last nine away games.

Breakdown of odds and betting insights:
On the ground, Jacksonville finds a favorable matchup that boasts the ninth-best rushing offense in the league (130.4 yards per game) and meets Detroit’s 30th-ranked running defense, which concedes 154.76 yards per game. In Week 12, Travis Etienne suffered a foot injury that forced him out of the game after just two carries for three yards. If the star running back can return in Week 13, he’ll find a juicy matchup against a Lions defense that has allowed 12 quick touchdowns against opposing running backs this season.
Jared Goff, who has thrown six touchdowns in his last five games, should have a solid showing against a Lions secondary who threw a total of 24 touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks in 2022. The veteran signal caller has successfully played at home this season, throwing 88.2%. his touchdowns (15/17) at Ford Field.
Expect another big day from Amon-Ra St. Brown, who has clinched 37 receptions for 441 yards (88.2 per game) in his last five games. The rising talent, who has had just one touchdown since Week 2, should add to that disappointing record against a Jaguars defense that has allowed opposing wide receivers eight goals in their last six games.
D’Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams, who have combined 18 touchdowns, find a tricky matchup against a Jaguars defense that has conceded just eight rushing touchdowns to opposing running backs in 11 games this season. The Jaguars’ run defense has been stingy over the past month, holding off the Broncos, Chiefs, Raiders and Ravens only 71.5 rushing yards per game
Jaguar’s straight-up record: 4-7
Jaguars against the spread record: 4-6-1
Lions straight-up record: 4-7
Lions Against The Spread record: 7-4
