NFL Week 2 Betting: Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers Odds, Picks and Overview

Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers NFL Betting Predictions and Odds

Commencing with their week one loss to the Bears was a reminder.  Detroit consistently snatches defeat from the jaws of victory.  Chicago was trailing the Lions 23-6 in the fourth quarter.  A sure NFL betting win seemed likely.  Only the Lions could screw it up.  And they did.  Chicago scored three touchdowns to get the win and money.  Counter to that was a dominant Packers performance at Minnesota.  Aaron Rodgers was in Hall of Fame form.  Any doubts about the Packers’ abilities were quickly erased.  From those two ends of the spectrum comes a Sunday meeting at Lambeau Field.

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers CashBet Wagering Analysis

It follows that opening day results will have an effect on best sportsbook online perceptions.  Squares being squares they won’t get past the latest Lions debacle.  Green Bay is a natural public team anyway.  Add in the respective results of last week and the line could increase on the Packers.  For this reason, Detroit is a very hard sell.  What happened last Sunday is indicative of how masses view the Lions.  Green Bay met public expectations as well in Minnesota.  Now at Lambeau Field, the Packers will be irresistible.  Sharps will take a contrarian look at Detroit.

Lions on the Matt Again

Chicago scored a 27-23 betting on NFL win at the Lions.  Detroit was 2.5-point chalk as the game went over 42.5.  Lions coach Matt Patricia barely escaped the firing squad last December.   Much to the surprise of all.  As a result of the Bears loss, he returns to the hottest seat in pro football.  Making matters worse the Lions were unable to complete a bailout drive deep into Chicago territory.  No team tortures its fans or gamblers worse.  Most important of all the Lions proved they can’t finish.  Detroit outgained Chicago 426-363.

Pack Roars Back with Statement

Last Sunday the Packers covered a 43-34 win at Minnesota as 1-point dogs.  Over a total of 44 paid as well.  Namely, Aaron Rodgers stole the show for Green Bay.  Rodgers was 32 of 44 for 364 yards and four touchdowns.  Accordingly, any doubts about the Packers

pro football betting priorities were answered.  Drafting Jordan Love to replace Rodgers is not an immediate topic anymore.  Also contributing to the Pack was Devante Adams with 14 catches for 156 yards and two touchdowns.  Green Bay outgained Minnesota 522-382.

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers Against the Spread

To show, the Lions have a football betting mark of 4-6 against the spread as road dogs.  Five of their last eight in that role have gone under.  Detroit has paid in only two of their last seven NFC North away games.  Five of their last six in that situation went under.

When hosting NFC North teams Green Bay has covered just three out of eight.  Five of their last seven divisional home games went under.  By contrast, the Packers have covered 10 of their last 16 at Lambeau Field.  Four of their last six at home went under the total.

At Lambeau Field, Detroit has covered four of their last five visits.  And won three of those games straight up.  Three of those five games went under the total.  Overall, the Lions have covered six in a row against the Packers.  This series has gone under the total three straight times.

In this situation, a public fade makes the most NFL gambling sense.  Detroit will get enhanced value with public opinion strongly on the Packers.  Further, the Lions will be motivated to atone for their week one debacle.
