Ndamukong Suh is expected back on the football field on Sunday afternoon when the Detroit Lions (8-5) travel to take on the Oakland Raiders (7-6) inside the Coliseum.

The second-year defensive tackle out of Nebraska has finished serving a two-game suspension from stepping on the right arm of Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith on Thanksgiving Day.

BetOnline is offering an entertaining proposition wager that offers betting odds of plus-350 that Suh will record a personal-foul penalty in Week 15, while sports bettors will need to lay some heavy juice that he doesn't get flagged for such an offense at minus-500.

It's unfortunate that this topic has gained the most media attention surrounding this important contest, considering both teams are in the playoff hunt in their respective conferences.

Detroit has settled in as one-point road favorites against Oakland—occupying the sixth and final spot in the current NFC playoff picture.

Meanwhile, the Raiders are on the outside looking in due to their two-game losing streak that has allowed the Denver Broncos to take a one-game lead in the AFC West division with three games remaining.

Suh has definitely returned at the perfect time to face a rushing offense that averages 138.8 yards per game, which is sixth-best in the league.

There's no doubt that the referees will be watching his every move this weekend, especially in playing against a franchise that is known for being involved in highly-penalized contests.

The "Black Hole" will be watching No. 90's antics in a visiting uniform as well.
