NFL Week 11 Betting: Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions Pick and Prediction

The Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions will get together Sunday afternoon in a huge tilt between NFC North teams. These two teams are both trailing the Chicago Bears in the division. Green Bay comes into the game with a 6-3 record, and they have won four staight games overall. Detroit has been one of the more disappointing teams in the NFL this season; as they come into the game with a 4-5 record. Detroit lost their most recent game to the Minnesota Vikings.

The Detroit Lions need a win in a bad way. The Lions will have to get their receiver Calvin Johnson going on the offensive side. Johnson has just two touchdowns on the season. Mikel LeShoure, the running back out of the University of Illinois has four rushing touchdowns; with three of them coming in one game. The Lions are the top passing team in the NFL behind quarterback Matthew Stafford. Detroit is passing for 307.3 yards per game. The Lions are two games behind for the NFC wildcards spot. The Lions are playing their first of three straight home games; as they see the Texans and Colts come to town the next two weeks.

The Green Bay Packers have been red-hot since their loss at Indianapolis. The Packers have beaten Houston, St. Louis, Jacksonville and Arizona all by a touchdown or more. The Packers leading receiver has been Randall Cobb with 500 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns on the season. Green Bay has been unable to run the ball effectively, as they are rushing for just 99.7 yards per game. The Packers have outscored opponents 239-187. Green Bay is playing their second of two straight road games. Next weekend, the Packers will head to New York to take on the Giants.

Free Prediction and Pick

The Green Bay Packers are looking to win their fifth straight game. The Packers feel they are just as good, or better than any other team out of the NFC. Green Bay can pass just as well as anyone. Detroit will have a tough time slowing down the passing game of the Packers. We do not feel they are disciplined and talented enough to score with the Packers. In the end, Green Bay comes away with a win in this game over the Lions.

Prediction: Green Bay Packers 31-17

The Green Bay Packers are just over a field goal favorite in this game; despite being on the road. We feel the Packers will continue their run at catching the Chicago Bears in the division. The Packers score early and score often, and come away with a win, and will cover the spread over the Lions.

Pick: Green Bay Packers -3.5
