NFL Betting: Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions

The (0-1) Detroit Lions will host its NFC North division rivals, the Green Bay Packers, in a NFL betting match-up this Sunday at Ford Field.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00 ET. Green Bay is 4-0 SU & ATS in its last four regular season battles with the Lions, with the ‘total’ going under the NFL odds in three of the last four games. The Packers played host to divisional rival Minnesota last Monday night at Lambeau Field.

They closed as slim one-point favorites over the Vikings, with the ‘total’ standing pat at 37. QB Aaron Rodgers looked very impressive in his debut for the Pack, completing 18-of-22 pass attempts for 178 yards and a touchdown.

CB Will Blackmon ran back a punt 67 yards for a touchdown to open the game up in the third quarter, and SS Atari Bigby had an interception in the Packers 24-19 victory. Football bettors that selected Green Bay to cover the NFL betting line were winners, as were those who picked the over in what many thought would be a defensive minded football betting contest.

The Lions opened the 2008 season in Atlanta, where football oddsmakers had them as 3.5-point road favorites to the Falcons, with the ‘total’ listed at 41. Detroit’s defense gave up some big plays in the first quarter that allowed Atlanta to jump out to an early 14-0 lead.

The Lions gave up another touchdown in the first quarter, but came back with two touchdowns in the second quarter to cut the lead to seven at the half. That said; the Falcons proved to be too powerful an opponent that day.

Atlanta’s offense piled up a whopping 474 total yards with 318 of it coming on the ground care of RB Michael Turner who made a huge impact for fantasy owners (22 rushes for 220 & 2 TDs). That’s ten yards more than Detroit’s offense churned out the entire game.

Atlanta won the NFL betting contest by a score of 34-21, pleasing those football bettors who predicted the ‘total’ would go over the aforementioned number. Sports-gambling.com offers the latest NFL spread, total, and money line wagers for this NFC North battle.
