Packers Vs. Lions Moneyline

There should be no doubts as to why the Green Bay Packers are heavily favored to win this matchup being that both teams are on complete opposite sides of the spectrum in terms of contending for a Super Bowl. Also, the Packers have won four straight meetings against the Lions and are in line to make it five straight.

However, Detroit may be worth a slight risk solely based on their performance in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers. The Lions found themselves down 28 points in Week 1 and rallied back to almost pull off an upset before losing by eight points.

If the Lions can keep that momentum going, they have a nice shot.

Packers Vs. Lions Spread

The Lions were 14-point underdogs ahead of their Week 1 outing with the 49ers and came back to cover. On the Packers side, they took on a 38-3 blowout loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1.

Still, the Detroit Lions have gone 6-2 against the spread in their last eight Monday Night Football matchups and are 4-1 in their last five games against the NFC North.

The Packers though, are 8-1 against the spread in their last nine games following a loss but Green Bay is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games when facing a team with a losing record.
