New York Giants at Detroit Lions: Betting odds, point spread and tv info

Mathias Kiwanuka, Matthew Stafford

It is time for Monday night football and that means a match-up between the New York Giants and Detroit Lions.

Neither team made the playoffs last season which meant jobs were lost, most notably in Detroit. This year both teams again set their sights for the postseason and a win in Week 1 could be crucial as both could be fighting for a Wild Card spot.

Coverage of the game between the Giants and Lions will air on ESPN beginning at 7:10 pm ET from Ford Field in Detroit, MI.

The Odds: The Detroit Lions are a 5.5 point favorite against the New York Giants. The over/under for this contest is 47 total points.

Will the Lions start the season off with a win or will the Giants stun them on the road?
