8* Unit Top Play MAX BET – #474 – Green Bay (+2.5) over Detroit
Green Bay has had two weeks to prepare for this game and I give McCarthy the big nod as a coach who knows how to coach when the chips are down. He knows how to win with what he has and Detroit cannot close a big game to save their life, never have, never will. My sources tell me Green Bays QB Hundley stayed in camp all week to study and work with WR’s and Aaron Rodgers was with him the entire time. Detroit’s OL line is a triage ward and frankly other than Stafford at QB Detroit really has nothing. Green Bay at home at night on national TV with their back against the wall in a must win game against a team they have beaten 24 out of 25 times at home catching points is too good not to stake a strong position on. Every sharp bettor in Vegas including my main source there is all over the Packers and so am I.
3 Unit Play. Take #474 Green Bay +2.5 over Detroit (8:30p.m., Monday November 6)
Going against the public in this one as I believe the Packers coming off their bye week will be prepared to play a Detroit Lions team that is coming off a home loss. The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Lions 20-15 in Detroit and the Lions couldn’t get the ball in the endzone and if they struggle Monday night I see the Packers winning this game at home. Brent Hundley had an extra week to prepare for his second start and I see him playing better and the Packers defense will also play better and the Packers win this game and we go back-to-back on Monday Night Football plays. Lions are 3-8 ATS against NFC teams and the Lions are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games.
