Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers early prediction and odds for Week 9

SideLion Report

The Detroit Lions will welcome the rival Green Bay Packers to Ford Field on Sunday, and here are early odds and a prediction for the game.

The Detroit Lions came back home in Week 8 after a couple tough road losses. Things started off well, before a second half fade yielded a 31-27 loss to the Miami Dolphins. At 1-6, the Lions have the NFL’s worst record.

Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, as head coach Dan Campbell has found his crutch word to explain deflating Lions’ losses.

Another home game is coming in Week 9 for the Lions, against a reeling division rival in the Green Bay Packers. The 3-5 Packers have lost four games in a row, as what could be Aaron Rodgers’ final season becomes increasingly dismal. Just making the playoffs feel like it’ll be a struggle.

The Lions seem to have a legit chance to beat the Packers on Sunday, and this time not in a regular season finale where Green Bay starters barely play (if at all) like last year. There’s little doubt the Lions, even with T.J. Hockenson gone in a trade and DJ Chark on IR, will have more depth of offensive talent on the field Sunday.

Via FanDuel Sportsbook here are the early odds for Sunday’s game, followed by a prediction.

Detroit Lions vs. Packers Week 9: Odds and a prediction

Point Spread:

Lions (+3.5): -110
Packers (-3.5): -110


Lions: +162
Packers: -194

Over/Under (49.5)

Over: -110
Under: -110

Prediction: Packers 24, Lions 20. 

The Packers are not well-equipped to exploit the Lions’ bad secondary/defense, with a bunch of inexperienced wide receivers and the experienced ones they have past their consistent usefulness. But they do have running back Aaron Jones, who is a legit dual-threat weapon the Lions won’t likely have a real answer for.

In a betting sense with this predicition, the Packers ust barely cover, Green Bay hits moneyline with a win and the under on the point total hits.

Note: Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
