Blogs > Lions Lowdown

One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Week 8 picks

The Redskins haven’t won a game by more than a touchdown this year. They’re favored by 7 1/2 points today against the Lions. So why am I taking the Redskins? Plain and simply, I don’t think the Lions can stop Clinton Portis. I expect Washington to control the clock with ease today at a half-empty Ford Field, Dan Orlovsky will have his first turnover as starter and the Redskins will win, 24-10.


Take that for what it’s worth. You know my record predicting Lions games. But I’m coming off a good week and ready to make the rest of my picks. As always, choices are against the spread and home teams are in caps:


Home covers you can’t deny

BALTIMORE minus-7 1/2 over Oakland

NY JETS minus-14 over Kansas City

DALLAS minus-2 over Tampa

NEW ENGLAND minus-7 1/2 over St. Louis

CAROLINA minus-4 over Arizona

JACKSONVILLE minus-7 over Cleveland

SAN FRANCISCO minus-5 1/2 over Seattle

TENNESSEE minus-4 over Indianapolis (Monday)


Road warriors laying with love

Buffalo minus-1 over MIAMI


Don’t need ’em, but I’ll take ’em

NEW ORLEANS plus-3 over San Diego

NY GIANTS plus-3 over Pittsburgh


Points only please

Atlanta plus-9 over PHILADELPHIA

Cincinnati plus-9 over HOUSTON


Record: Last week 9-5, overall 51-48-2
