Betting Green Bay Packers
The Packs are road chalk per the best online sportsbooks. Green Bay is coming off their second straight easy win. This gives them a three-game advantage atop the NFC North. The Packers boast one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL. But their defense has looked flimsy.
Green Bay allows 28.8 points per game on the road. That is fourth-worst in the league. They could struggle to dispatch a Detroit team that gained 460 yards of offense last week. The Packers crushed the Lions by a score of 42-21 when these two met Week 2.
That was just the first time Green Bay has covered in the last seven encounters between these two teams. It was also just the first time the Packers defeat the Lions by more than a TD in the last 11 games in this matchup.
Betting Detroit Lions
The Lions are home dogs according to betting sites. They are coming off a win of their own beating the Chicago Bears 34-30. With interim head coach Darrell Bevell in control after the firing of Matt Patricia, the Lions showed some balls, rallying from a ten-point deficit in the fourth. That’s a nice change for a Detroit team with a recent history of blowing early leads. That includes earlier this season in Green Bay.
Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions NFL Pick
The Green Bay Packers seem to have hit their stride lately. They’ve scored 30 points in five of their last seven games. They are covering too, good news for betting sites’ users. The Detroit Lions are coming off a sweet road win over the Bears where Matt Stafford made it do what it do.
But they still have one of the worst defenses in the league. Not a team you can depend on against overachieving offenses. Earlier this season, the Packers piled 41 points on the Lions and won by 21. It’s safe to say Green Bay is better now than it was in September. This should be another double-digit victory for the Packers.
With the exception of a bad shutout loss to the Panthers in Week 11, the Lions are generally capable of moving the ball down the field with QB Matt Stafford. The Lions score 25.6 points per game at home. They are at their best when they can take pressure off Stafford and establish their ground game. This is a task that should not be too hard against the Packers’ soft run defense.
The Packers have a lively offense led by Aaron Rodgers, wide receiver Davante Adams and running back Aaron Jones. Green Bay leads the NFL in points per game with 31.6. they are second in yards per game with 396.6. That should mean lots of firepower against a Detroit defense that allows 29.8 points per game. That is second-worst in the league.
Both of these teams also have a record of high-scoring games when they play on fieldturf. The Packers are 14-6 to the Over in their last 20 games on fieldturf. The Lions are 12-2 to the Over in their last 14 on turf. With the total going in four of the last four clashes between these teams in Detroit, we can expect another shootout at Ford Field.
