The Green Bay Packers emerged victorious against the Los Angeles Chargers last weekend with a final score of 23-20, courtesy of a brilliant drive in the closing moments of the game. However, the Detroit Lions staged an even more impressive comeback, overcoming a 13-point deficit against the Chicago Bears with less than four minutes left to ultimately win the game 31-26. As a result, they have moved closer to the Philadelphia Eagles, who currently hold the No. 1 spot in the National Football Conference standings.
In the upcoming Week 12 matchup between the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions, the odds favor the Lions with a spread of -7.5 and a moneyline of -365. The points total is set at 45.5, with both the over and under at -110.
The game is scheduled to take place at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan on Thursday, November 23, 2023 at 12:30 PM ET and will be broadcast on FOX.
Despite their recent success, the Green Bay Packers are facing a tough challenge going up against the Lions, who have been performing exceptionally well. Quarterback Jordan Love put up decent numbers in the last game, but it remains to be seen how he will fare against the Lions’ strong defense, which is conceding just 223.5 passing yards on average.
The Lions, with an 8-2 record, are eying the No. 1 seed in the NFC, currently held by the Philadelphia Eagles. With their quarterback Jared Goff experiencing a mixed performance in the last game, the Lions will need to maintain their momentum and focus to secure a win against the Packers.
In the end, the prediction for the game leans in favor of the Detroit Lions, based on their recent strong performances. The expectation is for the Lions to not only win the game but also cover the spread.
