It’s time for an NFC North match-up between two struggling teams. The Green Bay Packers, have a 3-5 record and are 1-3 on the road. It has been a tough year, but this game against the Lions could definitely help. They’re only 3.5-point favorites in this game, so they definitely have a chance to cover.

The Detroit Lions have lost five games in a row and are 1-6 this season. There’s a good chance that Head Coach Dan Campbell is let go at the end of the season. His inability to secure wins has led to the Lions falling to last in the NFC North. They’re going to try and get a win over a division rival, but it definitely won’t be easy.

Packers vs. Lions Preview, Trends and Stats

The Green Bay Packers and their offense have massively struggled this season. On average, they’re putting up 18.1 points per game, ranking 26th overall. This isn’t what we expected from a team that has Aaron Rodgers leading them.

They rank 15th in the NFL in rushing yards per game at 122.5. Perhaps if they used their running game more often, they could open up the secondary. Last week, they lost 27-17 to the Buffalo Bills. By the end of the first half, they were down 24-7.

As a defense, the Packers rank 16th in the NFL. On average, they’re giving up 21.6 points per game, while only scoring 18.1. With such a large margin between these two statistics, it’s easy to see why they’re 3-5.

The Detroit Lions have a very good offense, but they have the worst defense in the league. Although they’re scoring 24.7 points per game, they’re giving up 32.1. No team can win games if they’re giving up over 30 points per game.

This is why it’s no shock that the Lions are 1-6 this season with a 1-3 record at home. The +3.5 points they’re getting in this game might not be enough to cover the spread. We can use their history against the Packers to make our decision, though.

Packers vs. Lions Predictions

On the road this season, the Packers are 2-2 against the spread. Overall, they have a 3-5 record against the spread, slightly better than the Lions. However, the Lions are 2-1 against the spread in their last three games against the Packers.

This is the first time that these two teams have met this season. Still, the Lions offense is what we think will play the largest role in this game. Sure, their defense is terrible, but there is no denying their ability to score points.

Final Score: 26-20 (Lions)

EXTRA POINTS

1. Green Bay is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games.

2. The total has gone under in six of Green Bay's last nine games.

3. Detroit is 5-0 against the spread in their last five games at home against Green Bay.

Best Bet: Lions +3.5 (-110) and Under 49.5 (-110)
