Green Bay Betting Predictions

The Packers are set to travel to Detroit following their consecutive victory, a surprising 23-20 triumph over the Chargers. This win has propelled them to the outskirts of the playoff race, and securing a victory against the Lions would greatly enhance their chances of securing a postseason berth.

Since the NFL merger in 1970, the Packers have participated in 11 Thanksgiving football games, with eight of them being against the Lions. Their overall record stands at 5-6, but interestingly, all five of their victories have come against Detroit. The Packers have historically dominated this rivalry, boasting a remarkable 105-76-7 record in their 188 meetings dating back to 1930.

However, their recent performance has been less impressive, as they have suffered three losses in their last four encounters since 2021. In terms of their performance within the NFC North this season, the Packers have a record of 1-2 both in straight-up wins and against the spread (ATS).

The under has also prevailed in 1 out of their 3 games. Additionally, when playing on the road, they have a 2-3 record against the spread, narrowly failing to cover in three consecutive games by an average margin of just 1.17 points.

Detroit Lions Betting Picks

The Lions have faced difficulties in their traditional Thanksgiving game recently, experiencing a six-game losing streak and a 3-3 record against the spread. Since 2016, they haven't been favored on Turkey Day, but this year they have a 6-2 against the spread record as favorites, despite failing to cover against the Bears.

On Sunday, the Lions started as 7.5-point favorites and have a 2-1 record when favored by at least seven points this season. Their average margin of victory stands at 10.1 points for the season. Notably, they triumphed over Green Bay by a 14-point margin earlier this year, with a final score of 34-20.

Packers vs Lions Predictions

OVER 47.5 (-110): Detroit has emerged victorious in seven consecutive matchups against NFC North opponents. Although they are expected to secure an eighth win against a struggling Green Bay team that has only managed to win one out of their five road games, the wiser choice lies in favor of the Over.

Last week, Green Bay was fortunate to limit their opponents to just 20 points, with Los Angeles only scoring one touchdown out of four red-zone possessions. Additionally, it was the Packers' first game without a turnover since Week 2, and they have a good chance of extending this streak to two games as the Lions rank among the bottom nine teams in takeaways.

Due to Green Bay's injuries in the backfield, Love is likely to rely more heavily on passing. With starting running back Aaron Jones leaving the field on a cart last week and No. 3 back Emanuel Wilson nursing a shoulder injury, AJ Dillon will shoulder the primary responsibilities in the backfield.

However, it was always expected that attacking Detroit through the air would be the more strategic approach, considering the Lions' strong defense against the run. Love will aim to build on his second-half performance from last week, where he completed 12 of 17 passes for 167 yards and two touchdowns. Whatever happens, BitCrypto Gazette is predicting a lot of points from Detroit with Green Bay needing touchdowns just to keep pace.
