Alarm bells should now be ringing close to the loudest level in Green Bay following yet another loss for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, who suffered a 27-17 defeat at the hands of the Buffalo Bulls on the road last Sunday. But a game against the also-struggling Detroit Lions could just be what the doctor ordered for the Packers. However, the Lions, who lost to the Miami Dolphins at home in Week 8, 31-27, can still be pretty dangerous, especially to a freefalling team like Green Bay. Check out our preview of this Packers vs Lions game in Week 9 of the 2022 NFL regular season.
Betting Preview for the Green Bay Packers vs Detroit Lions Week 9 Game on November 6, 2022
Where: Ford Field, Detroit, MI
When: Sunday, November 6, 2022, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Green Bay Packers (-3.5)
Regular Season Record: 3-5
The Packers are banged up which is a major reason why they are struggling on the field. They did not have Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb in the Buffalo game. Christian Watson was not able to finish the contest because of a concussion. Cobb is still on the injured reserve, while Lazard and Watson could be deemed questionable to play against Detroit. All that being said, the Packers still have Aaron Rodgers, whose prime might be behind him, but shouldn’t matter so much when he plays against the Lions, who are last in the NFL in scoring defense with 32.1 points allowed per game.
The Packers are 13-5 against the spread in their last 18 games after a loss.
Betting on the Detroit Lions (+3.5)
Regular Season Record: 1-6
The Lions’ defense continues to be a mess, but one thing we know about them is that they can score. In fact, the Lions are fifth in the NFL, so far this season with 24.7 points per game. Only the Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, and the Philadelphia Eagles score more points a game on average than Jared Goff and the Lions. The Packers might not have the firepower to keep up with the Lions in a potentially high-scoring affair in Detroit this coming weekend. Former Packers running back Jamaal Williams might have a revenge game special served up for Green Bay on Sunday. For one, the Packers run defense is fourth-worst in the NFL with 141.3 rushing yards allowed per game.
The Lions are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games versus NFC North teams.
The Packers win, 34-27.
