We already covered the betting lines for two major games on Sunday, and here’s the NFL betting guide for two more that football fans are excited for!
Some major NFL games are taking place this Sunday. Let’s take a look at the betting lines for two of the most important.
Washington Redskins vs. Detroit Lions
A game between two fan-favorites will take place Sunday afternoon, and many analysts are predicting it will be the most exciting game of the week. The Redskins will be looking to push towards the top of the NFC East, while the Lions hope to make it three wins in a row after a rocky start to the 2016 season. These two teams might not be Super Bowl contenders according to most online sportsbooks in the US, but both teams have loyal fan bases and consistently put on good games.
The Washington Redskins started off this season with two straight losses, but have since won four straight to become the second-ranked team in the NFC East. Quarterback Kirk Cousins has emerged as a real talent for Washington, completing 65% of his passes this season for 1,695 yards. Their offense is also benefiting from running back Matt Jones.

- Washington Redskins: +100
- Detroit Lions: -120
- Cleveland Browns: +350
- Cincinnati Bengals: -450
The Lions’ offense is also their biggest strength. Matthew Sanford has been somewhat inconsistent as a QB thus far, but has proven to be worth his position as a starter. The on-field relationship between Sanford and Anquan Boldin will be put to the test this Sunday, but if they can find their groove it’s likely the Lions can get the victory.
According to GTBets, these two teams are fairly even. The Redskins are entering the game as the NFL betting underdogs with odds of +100, and the Lions the slight favorites with odds of -120. It will be interesting to see how these two offense-minded teams match up, but our NFL betting guide experts are predicting a good one between these two.
Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Okay okay, say what you want about the Browns being part of one of the biggest games this week, but we had to throw in a curveball. This might be a game between two AFC North letdowns, but it could still be fun to watch, and anyone that likes to bet on sports in the US could win some serious money betting on the underdogs here.
There’s no denying the fact that the Browns are the worst team in the NFL right now. Out of all 32 teams in the league, they are the only one to have lost all six games of the season. Cleveland has emerged as a serious sports town since the Cavs won the NBA Finals, but unfortunately their football team just can’t ride the momentum. They didn’t look bad last week against Tennessee, but a loss is a loss… And they lost.
The Bengals haven’t fared much better this season, but at least they have a couple wins! They were actually playing great against the Patriots for the first three quarters last week until Tom Brady eventually took over and they were defeated 17-35. The Bengals are third in the AFC North, and a loss to the Browns on Sunday would essentially kill their chances of making the playoffs.
You don’t have to be an NFL betting guide expert to know the Brown’s odds to win here aren’t great. First year coach Hue Jackson has not done much to help the team with evolve, and with RG3 injured, they’re offense just can’t compete. With that being said, this is football, and anyone can win on any given day. A bet on the Browns could put serious cash in your pocket here. They are the biggest GTBets underdogs of the week with odds of+350. The Bengals come in with odds of -450.
