Lions-Colts expert predictions roundup: Most analysts are picking the Colts

Though the Lions are getting some love locally, the Colts are the pick among the media nationally.

It’s Week 1, which means it’s the week where we know nothing about everyone and most of our predictions end up looking foolish. We’ve already seen this with the season opener. In our official Pick’em league of about 50 players, only 10 picked the Broncos to beat the +3 spread over the Panthers.

This has got us here at Pride Of Detroit feeling a bit nervous, considering all 11 of us are predicting the Detroit Lions to win their opener on the road against the Indianapolis Colts. Maybe if we broaden our scope, we’ll see a different outlook of the game. Here’s a roundup of all the predictions we could find for Lions-Colts.


So things are pretty evenly split locally, but how is the game viewed nationally? Quite different, actually.


So if we tally those numbers up, here’s what we get:

Locally (excluding Pride Of Detroit): 5-3 Lions

Nationally: 24-13 Colts

Alright, time for our perfectly unbiased poll. Who’s going to win tonight?
