Week 1 NFL Odds: Rams Vs. Lions

The Detroit Lions caused a stir throughout the NFL last season as one of the up-and-coming teams to watch going forward. Current lines, according to OddsShark, indicate the heightened expectations of them as they host a team looking to make some noise of their own in 2012, the St. Louis Rams, on Sunday in Week 1.

Detroit, likely to be jostling for supremacy in a crowded NFC North all season, is favored by 9 points over St. Louis. The 5 Dimes Sportsbook has the spread set at 11 points, with others such as Bovada, Just Bet and Top Bet are all favoring the Lions by 9.5.

The over/under opened at 46.5 points but dipped a bit, currently sitting at 45.5. Detroit, with an explosive offense captained by quarterback Matthew Stafford and constant big-play receiving threat Calvin Johnson, is likely being counted on to put up eye-popping numbers from the get-go. It will be the task of the Rams' offense, led by Sam Bradford, to try and match them.

Kickoff is set for noon CT at Ford Field in Detroit.
