Fithian Fab Five: Calvin > Fitz

By: Dennis Fithian

Detroit Lions season predictions: 7-5-1

Detroit -6.5 @ Arizona: What a difference a quarterback can make. Calvin Johnson trying to break the great  Jerry Rice’s single season receiving mark.  Larry Fitzgerald has 894 less receiving yards than Megatron this season. The Cards quarterback play this year has been brutal and so has the running game. The only thing Arizona does well statistically is defend the pass. Big games potentially for Mikel Leshoure and Joique Bell on the ground.

Prediction: Detroit 30 Arizona 17

 

Pro best bets season: 21-24-2

Denver -3 @ Baltimore: Ravens fire their OC this week and have only lost one game this year at home.

Prediction: Baltimore 24 Denver 21

 

St Louis -3 vs. Minnesota: Rams defense is the story.

Prediction: St. Louis 17 Minnesota 13

 

Buffalo +5 vs. Seattle: Seahawks are great at home. Too many points to lay on the road.

Prediction: Seattle 21 Buffalo 20
