"NFL Picks, Predictions,
  Point Spreads & Odds"

When it comes to making NFL picks most pro football handicappers & sports betting experts get stuffed at the goal line, because they use NFL gambling info & NFL betting stats already factored into Las Vegas pro football lines when determining their NFL football picks & predictions each week...

FootballLOCKS.com has a different system for making NFL betting picks. We use our innovative Backwards Odds Handicapping of Las Vegas NFL odds & NFL point spreads to seek indications in the weekly NFL line as to which teams Las Vegas sports odds makers may think have an edge to cover the spread.

If you place NFL bets or gamble in a football pool, see if your NFL wagering success increases with a bet on FootballLOCKS.com's NFL expert picks & predictions... While the full card of week to week NFL game picks aren't 100% free NFL picks, we think you'll see by our subscription options that you're practically getting our NFL selections on the house.

Detroit Lions 2010 NFL Projection:
"SWOT analysis" of the 2010 Lions (including strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) followed by the FootballLOCKS.com classic schedule analysis and a record projection summary.

Strengths:
WR Calvin Johnson, DT Corey Williams, DT Ndamukong Suh.

Weaknesses:
Pass defense, offensive line pass blocking, offensive line depth, RB health, linebacker depth, secondary.

Opportunities:
1st round draft selection DT Ndamukong Suh looks to transform the defensive line. DT Corey Williams could wreak havoc next to Suh. DE Kyle Vanden Bosch could transform the pass rush and take pressure off a weak secondary. Receiver height (WR Calvin Johnson, WR Bryant Johnson, TE Brandon Pettigrew, TE Tony Scheffler) could create matchup problems for defenses. WR Nate Burleson could give the Lions a consistent second wideout, and help in the return game. CB Chris Houston could help the secondary. 1st round draft pick #2 (RB Jahvid Best) could bring Barry Sanders like running back to Detroit. Can QB Matthew Stafford improve upon his rookie campaign?

Threats:
Departure of LB Larry Foote & LB Ernie Simms. QB Matthew Stafford's interceptions. Strong defenses in Green Bay & Minnesota. Strong offenses in Green Bay & Minnesota. Chicago's acquisition of DE Julius Peppers.

Schedule Analysis:
In 2010 Detroit will play 8 contests versus squads that made the postseason last year including;

In spite of Detroit's vast offseason improvements, many of the above games still impress as losing propositions.

Other potentially difficult games include;

While the opening contest at Chicago looks more winnable with each passing day given the Bears' woes, overall Detroit will surely be underdogs in the vast majority of their games-- even if they pull upsets in weeks 1 & 2.

Record Projection:
Overall we now project the Lions to go (5-11) in 2010. This is an upgrade from our opening projection as their defensive line could cause trouble for opposing teams. But the Lions' offensive line and rest of their defense may have too many weaknesses to grab many more wins.
