There’s certainly no love lost between the Packers and the Lions as Week 6 winds down with a classic division rivalry.
Green Bay’s statement win over the Cowboys in Dallas last week reminded everybody just how much talent is on the Packers’ roster, and with another home game in hand, it’s no surprise to see Matt LaFleur’s team as the favourite.
Detroit head to Lambeau fresh from the bye hoping to bounce-back from a Week 4 loss to the Lions. Matt Patricia’s side allowed a walk-off touchdown in the dying stages, but Detroit still has plenty to feel confident about with the defence playing out of its skin.
The Lions have held the upper hand over the Packers in recent years having won six of their last 10-games. Detroit recorded a memorable 31-0 shutout over Green Bay at Lambeau in the final week of the season last year, but things have certainly changed since then.
The staple of this years Packers team is defence, and while Matthew Stafford has had no trouble finding his receivers this year, he’s still turnover prone.
Green Bay currently ranks third in takeaways this season, so you can expect to see plenty of Kerryon Johnson on the ground. That’s where this game could turn interesting, as the Packers defence has allowed the seventh-most rushing yards and the fifth-most touchdowns.
Against the spread, the Lions are 4-1 in their last five games against the Packers, so this game should come right down to the wire.
Tip: Green Bay Packers at $1.46
