NFL handicappers will be happy to see that wide receiver Calvin Johnson is listed as probable on the Detroit Lions' injury report, as they get set to face the Seattle Seahawks at Ford Field, with Sunday's opening kickoff scheduled for 1:00 p.m. ET on FOX.
The Lions are listed as one-point home favorites in the current Week 8 NFL betting odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the over/under has settled in at 43 in the market.
Johnson finished with just three catches for 34 yards in last Monday night's 13-7 setback to the Chicago Bears, but he's still averaging 98.7 receiving yards per game on the year.
Let's take a closer look at this NFC contest from a betting perspective, while offering an against-the-spread (ATS) pick along the way.
