Green Bay Packers vs Detroit Lions Odds: 82% Of Bets Are On The Over
To close out the second week of the NFL season, we’ll get to a see a divisional matchup between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers. Each team is coming off of a loss but the expectations are vastly different.
For Green Bay, they were downright embarrassed in Week 1. As a Super Bowl contender with an offseason filled with drama, you’d imagine that Aaron Rodgers would like to prove that last week’s 38-3 loss was a fluke.
Detroit is also off of a loss to open their season but with a rookie head coach, and a new QB they’re not expected to make much noise in the NFC.
While the percentage of bets is split fairly evenly against the spread, we see a vast difference when looking at the over/under in this game. 82 percent of the bets are on the over at 49 for this week.
