Green Bay has historically enjoyed road success in Detroit

The Green Bay Packers are 8-3 SU and ATS in their last 11 road games against the Detroit Lions. With nothing but pride left for these two division rivals to play for, the Packers will try to move to 8-8 and avoid their first losing season since 2008 with a win in Detroit on Sunday.

SHARK BITES
  • The Packers are 27-7 SU in their last 34 games against the Lions.
  • The Lions are 12-1 SU in their last 13 games at home against teams with losing records.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Packers’ last four games against the Lions.

Aaron Rodgers returned for one game in Week 15 looking to keep Green Bay’s playoff hopes alive with a road win over the Carolina Panthers. After losing that game and falling out of playoff contention, Rodgers returned to the sideline to rest his injured collarbone and watch his Packers lose 16-0 at home, the second shutout loss in their last three home games. Green Bay’s season and a streak of eight straight playoff berths end on Sunday.

Detroit fumbled away the opportunity to keep its playoff hopes alive with a 26-17 loss on the road to the Cincinnati Bengals. The loss dropped the Lions to 8-7 SU and 7-7-1 ATS on the season. A 9-7 record was good enough to get Detroit into the postseason last year but that won’t be the case again in 2017.
