NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Green Bay. According to latest NFL trends, the Packers are 5-1 against the spread in their last six trips to Detroit and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games versus the Lions overall. The Packers are well rested and should be well prepared coming off their bye. The Lions, meanwhile, are coming off a disastrous outing versus the Vikings in Minnesota. It could have been that they were caught looking ahead to their matchup with Green Bay but either way the Lions haven’t been consistent this season on offense. With Aaron Rodgers and Co. ready to explode in the second half, Green Bay should win and cover today on the road. They smell blood in the water now that Chicago has lost a game and Jay Cutler is banged up, so look for a determined Packer team to show up today in Detroit.
