  • The 49ers are as high as a -9 point favorite at most books.
  • The line has moved from -7.5 to -9 with more than 75% of the public love coming in on San Francisco.
  • San Francisco is the third team in the last 20 seasons to be a road favorite of at least seven points in Week 1 after having a losing record the year previous, with the previous two losing outright.
  • San Francisco has lost its last five games outright as a favorite.
  • Kyle Shanahan is 1-7-1 ATS (5-4 outright) as a favorite of at least seven points.
  • Detroit games have gone over the total in each of the last 10 Week 1 games.
  • BetUS resident Lions fan Las Vegas Cris: "It's how these teams stack up.  San Francisco is a much better team when they are healthy and the Lions are a mess replacing 11,000 snaps from last year with new talent or lack thereof."
