Making sports betting picks is one of my specialties, and today at Cappers Info, I’m making my Sunday Football Tipster pick based upon the football trends and NFL odds for the Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers game on Sunday, December 9th at Lambeau Field at 8:20 p.m. ET.
Detroit Lions (4-8, 5-7 ATS) +7
Green Bay Packers (8-4, 6-6 ATS) -7
The Packers and the Lions are two teams that have the potential to put on a show offensively, and we have seen it in games between these two before. For example, there were 86 points scored last year on New Year’s Day when these clubs met last year, but if you take that game out, there were games that featured 10 points, 42 points, and 44 points. This one isn’t going to be an exception to that low scoring rule, I would think.
I’m just not buying into the Lions right now at all offensively. They’re a one-man show with WR Calvin Johnson, but even if he goes off for 10 catches, 250 yards, and 3 scores, there’s still only 21 points on the board to show for all of that work. The Packers too, have been down offensively of late as well. They haven’t exceeded more than 24 points in three straight games, and I really don’t think they’re going to be able to do that again in this one.
Three out of four and five out of seven have failed to reach the ‘total’ in this series, and the snow and the wind isn’t going to help matters any. It’s going to be tough to move the ball up and down the field, and though there will be some big plays, there just won’t be enough consistent plays to put this many points on the board.
