Offshore Sportsbook: Lions vs. Raiders

The members of a team from Motown embark to Raiders Nation on Saturday as the Detroit Lions line it up opposite the Oakland Raiders for their 3rd exhibition game of the 2012 NFL season. Gametime in the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum is 7:00ET.

Detroit (1-1) has somehow managed to rank 2nd in the NFL in rushing this preseason at 182 yards per game, even without Jahvid Best who remains sidelined for this one. RB Mikel Leshoure may finally see some action against the Raiders after missing all of the 2011 campaign with s ruptured Achilles and then the first two 2012 affairs with a sore hamstring. Kevin Smith has been a serviceable rusher and with Matthew Stafford throwing the ball as he did in the Lions 27-12 victory versus the Ravens last week you don't need much more on offense.  Check the Online Sportsbook Odds for Lions vs. Raiders Game.

Oakland (0-2) lost last week to Arizona 31-27. In the process, they may have lost WR Jacoby Ford for at least the final two preseason games with a sprained foot. They were already without WR Denarius Moore, who will once again watch from the sidelines on Saturday. QB Carson Palmer and the "O" regulars should play into the 3rd quarter.

Late in last year's regular season, the Lions came back in dramatic fashion to beat the Raiders 28-27 in Oakland. Detroit leads the regular season series since 2001 3-0, winning twice in Oakland and once at home. Start your Sportsbook Gambling on Lions vs. Raiders Game.
