Odds from 

Detroit has been playing red hot lately, but so has Green Bay. Playing at home the Packers definitely will have a major boost in this game here as the Packers were able to blowout the Vikings in their last game and the Vikings are one of the top seeds in the NFC playoff picture. Now, what is interesting is both of these teams are playing for a potential playoff berth as they are listed on the bubble currently. With that being the case, I see this being a high scoring game with neither team really having a defensive showing which makes the over a good look, but also for the Lions to cover the spread and keep the game close, but the Packers should win in this game here.
