LINE: Green Bay -7.5
ATS PICK: Green Bay
– Bet on this, BetMGM latest line
Detroit usually needs a collapse to win.
Atlanta gagged away the Week 7 game in the final moments, Chicago totally melted down in last week 34-30 Lion win, and Arizona lost in Week 3 after turning it over three times.
This is a much stronger and it’s going to be a much looser Lion team under Darrell Bevell the rest of the way, but it’s not going to get a clunker out of Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay for one simple reason …
It almost happened last week.
The Packers were never in that much danger against Philadelphia, but things got a little loose late. They got up 23-3 in the fourth and were cruising right along, but a Jalen Reagor punt return made it a seven point game with just under seven minutes to play.
Aaron Jones ended any drama with a long touchdown run, but still, that was one of those win-but-not-happy games. A win all but seals the North for Green Bay, and there won’t be any letting up this time around.
The Lions give up way, way, way too many big plays through the air, and few push it down the field better than Rodgers and a receiving corps that’s fully cranked up with Davante Adams leading the way.
It would be nice to get this at 7, but the hook isn’t going to be a killer.
