Monday Night Football brings us an old division rivalry that hasn’t been very competitive in recent years. Here we have a very big underdog that scored 33 points in week 1 versus a home team that is last in the league with only 3 points scored in the opening game. How is that possible? Our crew will highlight the top betting opportunities of the Green Bay vs Detroit game and we will give you our best picks.
Should we bet the spread on the GB vs DET match?
The current line is Green Bay -11.5 @ -110, and this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Green Bay is a playoff contender and even though week 1 was bad for them, they are still considered to be the way better side here.
We aren’t fond of betting the spread but 11.5 is just too many points to swallow. What’s more, Detroit doesn’t really lose ATS (against the spread) when facing Green Bay. Over their last 8 games (4 seasons) Detroit is 7-1 ATS when playing against the Packers. This trend alone should be good enough for us to bet the Lions, but we also saw that they can throw the ball in week 1.
Jared Goff had 314 passing yards and that’s after barely using his receivers. We don’t think that Detroit loses by more than a TD + FG.
Our best bet for the Green Bay vs Detroit match
Jared Goff passing yards under 252.5 @ -120 is our best bet in that game. The last time Goff visited Green Bay was in the playoffs with the Rams. In that match, he threw for 174 yards and 1 touchdown. Yes, it was a cold-weather game but historically Goff hasn’t fared well versus the Packers.
Furthermore, if the Packers do not get an early lead, then the Lions won’t have to throw that much and can mainly run the ball. 253 yards is too high of a line for us to pass so our pick is the Under @ -120.
Players to keep an eye on
D’Andre Swift: Swift really split the snaps will fellow running back Jamaal Williams against the 49ers in week 1. Swift had only 11 carries for 39 yards. It’d be interesting to see if he gets more involved this week.
Aaron Rodgers: The superstar quarterback had a terrible outing versus the Saints in the opening week. He threw for only 133 yards with 0 TDs. Everyone is expecting his wrath to come down upon the Lions this week.
