Lions vs. Packers Free Pick
GREEN BAY, WI (The Spread) – With a division title on the line at 4:25PM ET, which NFC North team will cover when the Packers take on the Lions today at Lambeau Field?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Packers are 7.5-point home favorites over the Lions while the over/under total is currently sitting at 47 points. Despite the stakes being high for this game, Green Bay opened as a 7.5-point favorite and the line hasn’t budged.
The Lions have been a brutal bet in this series, going 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games overall versus the Packers and 1-4 ATS in their last five games in Green Bay. The favorite is also 5-0 against the spread while Detroit is just 3-12-1 ATS in its last 16 games in December.
On the other side the Packers are 21-8-1 against the spread in their last 30 games versus a team with a winning record and 37-17 ATS in their last 54 games versus NFC North opponents. While 7.5 is a large number to lay in a division title game, the Packers have been nearly unbeatable and unstoppable at home this year. Lay the points.
