Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers

Lions: 3-4-0 (2-1-0 V)
Packers: 4-3-0 (3-1-0 H)
When: 8:30 PM ET, Monday, November 6, 2017
Where: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wisconsin
TV: ESPN

Analysis:
The struggling Detroit Lions will attempt to right the ship and snap a three-game losing streak as they get ready to lock horns with the Green Bay Packers in an NFC North showdown set to be broadcasted Monday night on the ESPN network at 8:30 p.m. ET and live from the famed Lambeau Field in Green Bay. This will be the first meeting of the two-game series between the two division rivals. The Packers have swept the Lions last season and have won three of the four last contests.

The Lions enter this tilt as a three-point favorite, according to Bovada Sportsbook, with the total sitting at 43½ points. It is the first time in their last five contests against the Packers that the Lions enter as a favorite. They defeated the Packers 19-7 as a one-point favorite back on September in 2014. The Lions have won two of their three road games this season but have struggled mightily in Green Bay as they have won only once in their last 25 games back in Wisconsin.

The Lions are riding on a three-game losing streak but to their defense, all of their four losses this season have been against teams with winning records. They lost their latest at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday despite quarterback Matthew Stafford throwing for 423 yards on the day. However, the Lions failed to score a touchdown in the 20-15 loss to the Steelers. Once again, the Lions had no running game with just 71 yards on 22 carries and they rank 28th in the league with 82.1 yards per game in that department

The Packers will have to play six more games without their star quarterback Aaron Rodgers who is set to return on December 17 against Carolina. In his absence, the Packers have lost two straight games and are 1.5 games behind the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North. Rodgers’ replacement Brett Hundley has struggled throwing the ball as he has completed just 52.5 percent of his passes and has just one touchdown throw to four interceptions.

Bovada has the Lions listed as 3-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 43 according to MyBookie.

On the NFL Football Moneyline Odds at BetOnline Lions are the Favorite at -133.

The Bottom Line:
With Hundley under center, the Packers are just not the same team offensively but do expect to see plenty of running from Aaron Jones who has been a nice surprise of late. Stafford should enjoy a good night against a mediocre Green Bay defense. Take Lions -3 and the Over 43½.
