Pack-Lions' spread drops under field goal

Point spread in Packers vs. Lions drops below key number

Earlier today we speculated that the point spread for tonight's Packers and Lions game in Detroit wouldn't drop below a field goal. We were wrong.

After opening as a 5.5-point underdog, the Lions are now a 2.5-point home dog versus the Packers tonight at 8:25PM ET. According to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu, the over/under is back up to 47 after it was sitting at 46.5 on Thursday morning.

With 75% of public bettors currently backing the Packers to cover the spread, the line movement for tonight's game is a clear indication that sharps are taking the Lions. The question now is whether or not oddsmakers will feel forced to move the line back up to a field goal with more public money coming in on Green Bay leading up to kickoff. If the number stays below a field goal, then obviously oddsmakers respect the sharp money that is being laid on Detroit.

The Lions are just 3-13-1 against the spread in their last 17 games in December and 1-6 against the number in their last seven games versus divisional opponents. That said, they beat the Packers outright as a 10.5-point underdog at Lambeau Field a couple of weeks ago, and have played significantly better since their bye week following an embarrassing loss to Kansas City in London.
