When the 0-1 Packers host the 0-1 Lions at Lambeau Field on Monday night (8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN and ESPN2), the winner will try to reach first place in the weak NFC North. Green Bay is looking to bounce back from a nasty road loss to New Orleans in Jacksonville in Week 1, while Detroit is trying to maintain momentum from a failed late rally at home against San Francisco.
Aaron Rodgers played down the blowout and has bounced back strong from such losses with his Packers under Matt LaFleur in the past. The Lions hope new leaders Jared Goff and Dan Campbell have an answer to their first win together.
Here’s everything you need to know about Packers vs. Lions betting in Week 2, including updated odds, trends, and our prediction for “Monday Night Football.”
The Packers have held firm as big double-digit favorites despite the Lions covering last week and their own failure against the Saints. There is a feeling that there will be a big bump at Lambeau Field in primetime despair.
Packers vs. Lions series of all time
The Packers hold a sizable 104-72-7 lead over longtime division rivals. The Packers have a four-game winning streak. Before that, surprisingly, the Lions had won four in a row. However, the Packers have also won 7 of 11.
Prediction Packers vs. Lions
The Rodgers-Jones-Adams 1-2-3 punch will roll again and bring the Lions down. The defense will also rally at home to make life difficult for Goff once the game’s script takes the race away from Detroit. Green Bay has too much firepower and Detroit doesn’t have enough, especially when crawling through another back door on the highway.
