The 2024 playoff game between the Los Angeles Rams and the Detroit Lions is a significant event for quarterback Matt Stafford as he returns to Ford Field for the first time since leaving Detroit in 2021 after an 11-year stint with the Lions.
Stafford may not receive a warm welcome from Lions’ fans who now favor former Rams’ quarterback Jared Goff. Goff, who has been performing well with the Lions, is aiming to take the team to the Divisional Playoffs for the first time since 1991. The question remains whether his former team, the Rams, will be able to crush his dreams.
The odds for the game are in favor of the Lions, with a spread of -3.0 for Detroit and +100 for the Rams. The moneyline odds are at -165 for the Lions and +145 for the Rams. The points total odds are evenly set at -110 for Over 51.5 and Under 51.5.
The game is set to take place at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan on Sunday, January 14, 2024, at 8:00 p.m. ET. It will be broadcasted on NBC.
The Rams are entering the game in good form, finishing the regular season with a 10-7 record, winning seven of their last eight games. Quarterback Matt Stafford has been making carefully calculated plays on offense, resulting in fewer interceptions and effective yardage gains.
On the other hand, the Lions look promising, having won the NFC North Division with a 12-5 record. Quarterback Jared Goff and the Lions’ strong receiving game make them formidable opponents.
The prediction for the game is uncertain, as the Rams are expected to give the Lions a tough time. The pick is for the Rams at +3.0 due to their recent good form and experience in high-pressure games.
