Commanders at Lions Betting Preview
This is the Commanders at Lions Betting preview.
Washington and Detroit are clashing for the 30th time in the history of both of these franchises.
And the Commanders are winning the head-to-head 23-6.
But the rivalry has picked up since 2019 as the teams have split their 2 meetings.
And let’s add to that the fact that both of these squads will look much different this year.
Neither of these two teams is expected to make it to the top of their divisions, but both are definitely heading in the right direction.
The Commanders brought veteran Carson Wentz during the offseason.
And what is great about Wentz is that he can serve as both a leading figure and a mentor for the younger guys.
On the positive side, the Commanders’ stronger side is the defense.
And that’s because the team has a lot of first-round picks with great potential.
This is great news because “The Washington Team” was pretty bad at defending vs the pass last season. And this is particularly true when it comes to third downs.
The Commanders’ defense was pretty good before that, even catapulting the team to the playoffs just two seasons ago.
This team will be without Chase Young for the first four regular-season weeks.
But once he’s back, this defensive line will become even stronger.

The Lions have been acquiring talent, and they can finally be the competitive team Detroit fans have been hoping for.
In fact, this can be the year when Jared Goff can finally start producing as expected.
The team also brought Aidan Hutchinson from Michigan with their second overall pick to create a stronger defensive line.
And let’s not forget that Detroit also traded for Jameson Williams, who is likely to turn into one of the main targets for Goff.
Other weapons for Goff also include D’Andre Swift and Amon-Ra St. Brown.
