The Detroit Lions had high expectations coming into this season. They finally were at the same level with some of the tougher teams in the division to include their opponent on Sunday Night Football, the Green Bay Packers.
That was then and this is now.
The Lions have been plagued with slow starts that led to many unforgivable losses. Last week against the Colts it was the opposite, as the Lions started off fast only to crumble in the fourth quarter. A last minute defensive breakdown allowed Andrew Luck to power his team to yet another surprising victory. The Lions will not have long to regroup as they head on the road to battle the divisional rivals.
Detroit Lions vs Green Bay Packers Odds: The Packers are listed as (-7) point favorites in this game and it’s a bit surprising it is not more than that.
The Packers have overcome injuries to several key players to once again become relevant in the playoff picture. As long as Aaron Rodgers is under center, the Packers will be a tough team to beat. They are even harder to beat at Lambeau field where the Packers enjoy one of the best home field advantages in the game today.
It is a home field advantage that the Lions have yet to figure out. The last time the Lions won in Wisconsin was December 15th, 1991.
That streak will continue on Sunday Night Football. Head coach Jim Schwartz is under fire for his lack of discipline and the offense has looked bland at times trying to catch up against bad teams. Now after a heart breaking loss that could force the entire team to throw in the towel, they have to play at night in a place that has been a consistent house of horrors.
The Packers also have some dominating football betting trends coming into this game. The Packers are 21-8 ATS in their last 29 against the NFC North, 15-6 ATS in their last 21 home games, and 10-3 ATS in the last 13 games in the month of December.
The Lions are 4-11-1 ATS when playing a team with a winning record, 3-10 ATS in their last 13 against the NFC and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a loss.
The Lions are in a free-fall and it will be televised for all to see as the Packers blow them out on Sunday Night Football.
