Week 11 NFL odds: Packers vs. Lions

Doug Pensinger

The Green Bay Packers are slim favorites this week when they face the Detroit Lions on the road.

Looking to keep pace with the Chicago Bears in the AFC North, the Green Bay Packers are favored by 3.5 points this Sunday on the road against the Detroit Lions.

Green Bay is 6-3 on the season, one game behind Chicago. The Lions are last in the talented division at 4-5.

The Packers come into this one winners of four straight, led by their receiving trio of James Jones, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. 19 out of the 25 touchdowns that quarterback Aaron Rodgers has thrown this season have gone to one of them.

The Lions, who are looking for a way out of the division cellar, lead the league in passing yards. Wide receiver Calvin Johnson leads the team with 60 receptions.

The total for this one is listed at 51, though both teams have shown they are capable of either putting points on the board or not showing up offensively. The Lions scored 41 in a Sept. 23 loss to Tennessee, but averaged only about 15 points per game in their other four losses. Green Bay has been averaging over 30 per game over its last four contests after struggling to score earlier in the year.
