In a preseason game, I generally tend to start my handicapping with the underdog. Volatility is to be expected in these games with an odd allotment of backup players, some of whom are fighting for a roster spot. Therefore, I’m inclined to take the points with the underdog unless there’s a strong reason not to.
The line might have moved a tad too much with the news that most Colts starters wouldn't be playing and I don't expect many entrenched Lions starters to be in there long either. With the proven Foles at the helm for the first quarter and Ehlinger able to make plays with his arm and feet after that, Indy has value on the moneyline.

Nothing is intimidating about Washington's lineup, and I’d bet most baseball fans couldn’t name six guys in the order. Snell had a season-high 23 swinging strikes vs. the Nats five days ago and finished with a CSW of 33%. He’s also topped his Over 7.5 punchouts in three straight starts. The spin on his fastball is up over those three games, and pitcher-friendly Petco Park is also in his favor.
Arizona is loaded with right-handed arms in the bullpen. As soon as they make the change, Pujols will likely give way to a left-handed bat off the bench. Pujols has a .182 average vs. righties with a weak .318 slugging percentage.
