Expert Betting Tips
Both clubs still hope to make the playoffs, and they'll need the Seahawks' support if they're going to do it. In their first meeting on November 6, Aaron Rodgers threw three interceptions that helped Detroit pull away for a 15-9 victory. Although I think this one will have a higher total because both teams have been scoring more frequently of late, Green Bay's offense has scored 24 or more points in five consecutive games, indicating that the Packers will be a formidable opponent in their own stadium. However, in eight consecutive games, the Lions have scored 20 or more points. Therefore, in a close game, the Detroit Lions are heavy favorites to win and cover the spread.
