Per Adam Schefter on Twitter, Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift is expected to play in their Week 7 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Betting Impact:

The Rams are -16.5 point favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. Though the Rams are the third-biggest point spread favorites of the season, they are not even the biggest favorites of the Week 7 slate as that honor goes to the undefeated Cardinals against the Texans. Swift's playing status was never in serious doubt as he has been listed on the injury report almost every week. However, even with him being expected to play, an onslaught of late Rams money has come in, as the line went from an opening of -15.5 to -14.5 mid-week, but now sits at its highest number of the week. In addition to Swift, Detroit tight end T.J. Hockenson is also listed as questionable, while Rams running back Sony Michel is also expected to play.
