The Green Bay Packers will enter Sunday night's game in first place in the NFC North, but they currently have a tenuous grasp. At 8-4, they're tied with the Chicago Bears but hold a tiebreaker thanks to a head-to-head win early in the season. With another showdown against Chicago looming, the Packers need to at least keep pace with the Bears.
They can continue to do that when they face the Detroit Lions at Lambeau, where they will enter the game as 7-point favorites, per Oddshark.com. The line is one of larger spreads of the week, behind three games where teams are double-digit favorites. The over/under for the game is 50.5, which is almost exactly what the two teams average per game combined (Detroit is at 25.0 points per game this season, while Green Bay is at 24.7).
The Packers have been decent against the spread this year at 6-6 -- they're 3-3 at home and on the road. Vegas, meanwhile, has missed on the LIons, who are 4-7-1 against the spread and 2-3-1 on the road. Sunday night's game kicks at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC.
