01

Green Bay at Detroit

Sunday 01/01 08:30 PM Eastern

1 unit on Detroit +3.5 (-105) (risk 1 to return 1.95)  RESULT: LOSS

It all comes down to this game in the NFC North as the winner is the NFC North Champion. The loser has to hope for a Washington loss to get in as a Wild Card. The Lions were beaten pretty soundly by Dallas on Monday Night, but overall, that is the first game they have lost by more than one possession in their last 23. The Packers are red-hot, and are now 9-6 as they have run off five straight wins to get themselves back in the playoff hunt. I'm surprised to see Detroit as a home dog as they are 7-1 straight-up here in their last eight games, and the Packers are just 4-6 SU in their last 10 road games. Also, Green Bay has not beaten a team with a winning record on the road this season. I think that the Lions get the better of the Packers in this one and getting the points is the way to go. Take the points and play on Detroit.
