Lions vs. Packers Total Pick

NFL Total Predictions: Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers 11/6/17

With the potential for snow tonight, will the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers struggle to score many points when they meet at 8:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Lions are favored on the road in this game, as they are getting odds of -2 points against the Packers. The over/under total for the contest has been listed at 43 points. The Packers have won three straight meetings with the Lions and the two have hit the over in three straight meetings. The public betting in this one has Detroit getting 71 percent of the wagers. Tonight’s game takes place from Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The contest airs live on ESPN.

The Packers are coming off a bye week and they had a 26-17 loss to the Saints at home on Oct. 22. Green Bay has lost both games since Aaron Rodgers got injured and the Packers are now 4-3 on the season and 4-3 with the over. Green Bay is now averaging just 334.3 yards and 23.4 points per game. Brett Hundley has thrown for 244 yards and one touchdown and four interceptions thus far. Aaron Jones is the leading rusher for the offense with 346 yards and three touchdowns while Davante Adams has 30 receptions for 351 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Green Bay is allowing 23 points and 363 yards per game. Damarious Randall has three INTs to lead the defense.

Detroit is coming off a 20-15 loss to Pittsburgh at home last weekend for their third straight loss. The Lions are now 3-4 on the season and 4-3 with the over. Detroit has struggled on offense, averaging 25.1 points and 346.6 yards per game. In last weekend’s game, the Lions failed to get in the end zone despite racking up 482 total yards. Matthew Stafford has thrown for 1,851 yards and 12 touchdowns with four interceptions. He has been sacked 25 times this year and the Lions run game is averaging just 82.1 yards per game. Ameer Abdullah is the leading rusher with 369 yards. Golden Tate is the leading receiver with 43 receptions for 449 yards and two scores. Defensively, the Lions are allowing 24.1 points and 359.9 yards per game. Glover Quin and Darius Slay each have three interceptions this year.

Bet on Packers vs. Lions

This game features a pair of struggling offenses. When the Lions are able to block, they have been unable to get touchdowns. Green Bay is still trying to figure out how to get on track with Hundley. Both defenses tonight are respectable and the weather could also simplify the offensive game plans. Detroit has hit the under in 9 of its last 12 Monday games and 22 of its last 30 road games. I think the under hits tonight as well.
