Betting Green Bay
The Packers’ three-game straight-up and against-the-spread winning streak came to an end in a 27-34 home loss to Philadelphia. Green Bay entered that game as 3.5-point chalk, per US sportsbooks. There is no need to dwell on the past, though. In Week 5, it was the Packers’ turn to pull off the upset as a road dog (Oh, you didn’t know? You better call somebody!). Aaron Rodgers went 22 of 34 for 238 yards against the Dallas Cowboys. However, all of Green Bay’s four touchdowns came on the ground. And all of them were scored by the other Aaron — Jones, who rushed for 107 yards on 19 carries.
Green Bay’s defense was awful that day overall, allowing an unforgivable 563 total yards – 441 through the air. But at least they sacked Dak Prescott three times and intercepted him on another three occasions. The Packers came away with the 34-24 win as 3.5-point dogs.
The victory came at a price, however. Green Bay posted its longest injury list of the season yesterday (Thursday, 10th). And it wouldn’t be that bad were it not that Rodgers is one of the 20 players listed. The starting QB was limited in Thursday’s practice. Also limited were DL Montravius Adams, T Bryan Bulaga, DL Kenny Clark, TE Jimmy Graham, CB Kevin King, TE Marcedes Lewis, C Corey Linsley, S Will Redmond, WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and CB Tramon Williams.
Additionally, WR Davante Adams, CB Tony Brown, S Darnell Savage, and TE Robert Tonyan did not participate. And LB Oren Burks, LB Kyler Fackrell, WR Darius Shepherd, LB Za’Darius Smith, and RB Jamaal Williams had full participation in spite of sundry injuries.
Don’t hire the Lions to create a website for you. Because they can’t put three Ws together. Detroit saw their two-game winning streak cut short against Kansas City in Week 4. On the other hand, losing to the Chiefs by just four points was a moral victory – as well as a cover. Especially considering that the Lions’ defense snapped Pat Mahomes’s touchdown-throwing streak. However, they failed to sack or pick the wunderkind. And allowed him 315 passing yards. Offensively, Matt Stafford went 21 of 34 for 291 yards with two TDs and no picks. Marvin Jones had 77 receiving yards and Kenny Golladay added 67 with two scores. Kerryon Johnson lived up to his first name with 125 yards on 25 carries.
The Lions are also dealing with injuries, particularly as it pertains their offensive line. “On Thursday, the Lions had just five defensive linemen on the field: Harrison, Trey Flowers, Romeo Okwara, Kevin Strong and practice squad players John Atkins and Jonathan Wynn,” reports the Detroit Free Press.
Pick: According to US betting sites, Detroit covered three straight games before going on their bye week. The Lions are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games following a bye week. The Lions’ official website says that Detroit’s passing game versus Green Bay’s secondary is the matchup to watch. Then again, the Lions’ passing game may suffer as a result of an undermanned O-line. On the other hand, Packers fans better hope and pray that Rodgers’s injury is nothing serious. All things being equal, though, I would take Green Bay and the points.
