Football Betting: Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers

Football betting may have its most intriguing game of the week in Green Bay as the Detroit Lions face NFL football betting infamy!

Football betting handicappers must decide if taking the points with Detroit is a good intangible bet or if the Lions will go into the NFL football betting tank and surrender at 0-16!  The Detroit Lions are 0-15 straight up and coming off a football betting annihilation of 7-42 in their home finale against the New Orleans Saints.

Detroit is now 6-9 against the NFL odds.  Even teams such as the Detroit Lions have football betting strengths, however, and this game provides one of them.  Detroit has been a strong NFL football betting away team this year as they have gotten the cash in 5 out of 7 games on the road.

Detroit is also a respectable 6-5 against the spread after an 0-4 start against the football betting board to start the season.  Detroit suffered a tough football betting loss to Green Bay earlier this season on September 14 as they blew a 4th quarter lead in a 25-48 loss as 3 point dogs as the game blew up on them late in bizarre fashion.

Detroit ranked 29th overall on offense and 31st overall on defense.  The key football betting question here is the Lions motivation.  The Green Bay Packers also face legitimate concerns about their NFL football betting incentive.

It has been a bad second half of the season for the Pack as questions about the wisdom of trading Brett Favre have reached a fever pitch after the Packers lackluster football betting performance down the stretch.  Green Bay has also been a weak football betting proposition as a home team with a mark of just 3-4 against the NFL odds this year.

While quarterback Aaron Rodgers has good statistical numbers the fact remains that he has not delivered in the clutch.  Rodgers doesn’t inspire the football betting confidence that Favre did for the Pack.

The Packers 24th ranked defense has been a major reason for their drop this season and their special teams have been atrocious.  As a football betting chalk the Packers were just 3-4 against the spread.
