The action gets underway at 7:10PM Eastern Time on ESPN TV as the Detroit Lions will host the New York Jets. The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business has the home side Detroit Lions favored by -6 ½ points with the total lined at 45 points. This will spark the debut of Jets first round pick quarterback Sam Darnold. Facing basic secondary coverage Darnold put up average numbers in the preseason even though the media might think otherwise. New York failed to get a good run game going which may be an issue for the Jets quarterback during his rookie campaign. Former New England Patriots defensive coordinator Mike Patricia is now the head coach for the Detroit Lions. This is a team coming off back to back 9-7 regular seasons with one trip to the playoffs which resulted in a first round exit. Lions have not supported Matthew Stafford on the ground with the team rushing for 3.4 yards per carry in 2017 and 3.7 in 2016. This results in tight windows for their quarterback to work from as receivers have difficult time getting separation in patterns with such a poor threat in their run game.

At 10:20PM Eastern Time on ESPN the Oakland Raiders welcome into town the Los Angels Rams. LA Rams are favored on the road by -4 ½ points with the total set at 48 ½ points. The LA Rams were the surprise team in the NFL in 2017. They finished the regular season at 11-5 and were champions of the NFC West. In the playoffs the Rams made mistakes and dropped a 26-13 decision at home to the Atlanta Falcons. LA made some huge free agent signings on defense to improve on a unit that gave up 21 points and 339 yards per game. After making the playoffs in 2016 the Raiders stepped backwards and finished 6-10. They fired head coach Jack Del Rio and brought in former Oakland coach Jon Gruden for his second term. Gruden made changes to a defense that surrendered 23 points and 350 yards per game. They have veterans in the secondary and drafted two defensive linemen with their first four picks in the draft.
