The Detroit Lions are out to prove they’re a legitimate Super Bowl contender, and they could add to their case if they beat the Green Bay Packers on Monday. That’s going to be easier said than done, though, especially with the game set at Lambeau Field. The Lions and the Packers are +7000 and +1200 to win Super Bowl 54, respectively.

Betting on the Detroit Lions (2-1-1)
The Lions are back at work. After spending Week 5 on a bye, the Lions return to the field to face the No. 1 team in the NFC North. Before diving into the bye, Detroit hung tough in a matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, losing to Patrick Mahomes and company, 34-30. Despite the loss, the fact that they kept in step with a legitimate Super Bowl contender must have given the Lions added belief in themselves that they can make louder noises. Matthew Stafford had 291 passing yards and three touchdowns in the loss to the Chiefs, and he could duplicate that feat against the Packers’ defense that let Dak Prescott collect over 400 passing yards in Week 5. The run defense of Green Bay has been suspect, too, as it only ranks 26th in the league with 128.2 rushing yards per game.
The Lions are 7-3 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 road games. The over is also 6-4 in those outings.
Betting on the Green Bay Packers (4-1)
The Packers didn’t need Davante Adams in Week 5 to crumple the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday in a 34-24 victory in Arlington. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t even have to pass for a touchdown to get his Green Bay a win. All they needed was the explosion from another Aaron — Aaron Jones. The tailback led the team with 107 rushing yards and four touchdowns and added 75 receiving yards. Adams missed the Cowboys game with a toe injury, and as of this writing, he remains a day-to-day case. If he can’t go, Rodgers is too talented of a quarterback not to make use of the remaining wide receivers to deal damage on the Lions’ defense. Jones can also loosen up Detroit’s defense which could still be missing a key part of the secondary with safety Quandre Diggs still nursing a hamstring injury.
The Packers are 7-3 straight up (SU) and 6-4 ATS in their last 10 games at Lambeau Field against the Lions.
The Packers win, 27-23.
