Thursday Night Football: Lions at Chiefs. It’s Sheila Time!

Go figure! The two best owners in the NFL are women: Sheila Ford Hamp of the Lions and Amy Adams Strunk of the Titans. Both are tough, hard nosed driven women who want to win and have the gonads to make tough decisions. Sheila gets the first crack at proving her chops in hostile territory.

The 2023 NFL season opens tonight in Super Bowl champ Kansas City’s famed Arrowhead stadium against the upstart and loveable Detroit Lions of Hard Knocks fame.

The books installed the Chiefs as a 6.5 favorite early on, but then we found out Chris Jones is a holdout and Kelce is a probable no go and the public salivated on Detroit, lowering the spread to +4.

This is a game the Lions have to prove to the world they are for real. If they serve up a stinker, the believers turn on them in one week. Will the Lions hype pay off?

I survive in the NFL betting against the public, but this is potentially different. Detroit will score, and keep the game relatively close. Lets open with a win.

Pick: Lions +4
