Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Packers sit atop the NFC North at 9-3, having won five of their previous six games. The Lions have won three-out-of-five, including a thrilling 34-30 comeback win last week vs the Bears. Detroit is 1-0 since firing head coach Matt Patricia, and would love to trip up rival Green Bay. The Packers have an elite offense, but their defense is suspect, especially on the road. Green Bay gives up 28.8 PPG as a visitor, which is currently the fourth-worst road hemorrhaging rate in the league. Detroit tallied 460 total yards of offense last week, and will be seeking revenge from the 42-21 beatdown it received at the hands of Green Bay in Week 2. The Lions aren’t likely to win here, but they should definitely keep it closer than the 7½ -point spread we’re seeing. Packers 31, Lions 27
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are just unstoppable. Besides Rodgers, Aaron Jones and Davante Adams have been sensational.
The Packers lead the league with 31.6 points per game and the total has gone in five of their last seven games on the road.
Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions scored 33 points against the Chicago Bears last week. Stafford looked more comfortable and he got plenty of help from the backfield thanks to veteran Adrian Peterson.
WR Kenny Golladay remains questionable, but he could be a really huge boost to this offense.
The Lions average 23.8 points per game and the total has gone over in four of their last five games when playing at home against the Packers.
Green Bay already beat the Lions this year 42-21 (Week 2). Go over in a back and forth game.
