How to bet tonight’s game

It’s Monday Night Football... on Saturday Night. It’s like eating your dessert first. The Detroit Lions, winners of the NFC North, travel down to the Lone Star State to take on the Dallas Cowboys. A Week 17 game pitting two playoff teams against each other is great. While both teams already punched their tickets to the dance, Detroit still has a shot at improving their seeding while Dallas still has a chance at the division. This game is important for both squads.

The Cowboys come into this one losers of back to back games to AFC East opponents and looking to rebound before ending the year at Washington. The Lions have bounced back after losing the Chicago in Week 14 by taking out the Broncos and Vikings. They finish the regular season with a home game against the Vikings.

Nothing would surprise me in this one but the Lions are the team that has seemingly righted the ship after a bit of a slump. The Cowboys are fantastic at home so if you’re into that kind of thing, by all means, take the ‘Boys. I’m going to take the team that has everything clicking right now as the heavy underdog in a shootout. Let’s have some fun tonight.
