NFL Betting: Lions are Ice-Cold ATS

Matthew Stafford Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers are set to square off on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field in Week 9 of the NFL slate with both sides mired in some tough times. It’s been a year to forget for the Lions, who are just 1-7 SU. Detroit has been an awful play this year when it comes to covering the spread, going just 1-7 ATS at the midway point of the season.

Shark Bites
  • The Lions are 0-5 ATS in their last five games as underdogs against the Packers.
  • The Packers are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games at home.
  • The Lions are 1-8 ATS in their last nine games as underdogs in November.

Green Bay’s return to Wisconsin couldn’t come at a better time. The Pack are coming off consecutive losses to the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers and have looked mediocre in just about every aspect of the game.

Green Bay’s defense has allowed 96 points over its last three games—a big reason a boiling point occurred on Sunday which saw multiple Packers defenders have a scuffle on the sidelines.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Green Bay Packers were -11-point favorites at odds maker shops such as Bovada at open, but the spread has now shifted to -12. The total opened at 48 and has since moved to 49.
