Betting Preview for the Green Bay Packers vs Detroit Lions Regular Season Week 14 Game on December 13, 2020
Where: Ford Field, Detroit
When: Sunday, December 13, 2020, 4:25 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Green Bay Packers (-7.5)
Regular Season Record: 9-3
The Packers have gone 4-1 in their last four games and 2-0 in their last two. In their most recent game, they scored a 30-16 win at home over the Philadelphia Eagles, who simply had no answer for Aaron Rodgers. The Packers’ quarterback threw for 295 yards and three touchdowns without an interception. Rodgers has always been a big threat to Detroit, and he’s already shown the Lions why this season when he led the Packers to a 42-21 home win over their NFC North rival back in Week 2. Rodgers had 240 passing yards and two touchdowns without a pick thrown on 18-of-30 completions in that game. With plenty of weapons around Rodgers plus the fact that the Lions are just 26th in the NFL against the pass (261.7 passing yards allowed per game), expect him to keep on rolling this coming Sunday.
The Packers are 4-2 against the spread in their last six games awaiting from Lambeau Field.
Betting on the Detroit Lions (+7.5)
Regular Season Record: 5-7
The Lions could be on to something. After giving interim head coach Darrell Bevell his first win as head coach by beating the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field in Week 13, the Lions seem reinvigorated. Matthew Stafford passed for 402 yards and three touchdowns with just an interception on 27-of-42 completions against the Bears, and he did all that without two key offensive weapons around him in running back D’Andre Swift and wide receiver Kenny Golladay. Swift has a chance to return to action in Week 14 along with Golladay, who hasn’t played since Week 8. Nevertheless, Stafford appears to have some useful targets downfield in Marvin Jones and TJ Hockenson. Jones had 116 receiving yards and a touchdown on eight catches against the Bears, while Hockenson had 84 receiving yards on seven receptions. Hockenson led the team with 62 receiving yards on four catches in the first meeting this season with the Packers.
The over is 9-1 in the Lions’ last 10 home games.
The Packers win, 32-27.
