In what should be one of the most exciting games of week three, the Packers will visit the Lions in Detroit for an NFC North contest. These two teams are both 1-1 to begin the season, which is where the rest of the division stands early in 2014. Even though it is just week three, this could be a big stepping stone for the team that comes out on top on Sunday. We are going to back the visiting Packers as they take on the Lions at Ford Field.
Packers hope late success over Jets in week two continues
Green Bay was throttled by the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks in the very first game of the season, but stormed back late last week to take down the New York Jets for their first win of the season. With their second-half comeback over the Jets, the Packers hope that their success in that game carries over to their week three meeting with the Lions.
Lions ready for tough game in front of home fans
Detroit’s lone win this season came at home, which is why they are excited to be facing the Packers for the first time this year at Ford Field. They were outdone by the Panthers in Carolina last week after dismantling the Giants at home in the first week of the season. Detroit turned the ball over three times in week two, which cannot happen Sunday if they want to grab their second win of the season.
On Sunday afternoon, when the Lions prepare to host the Packers, we will be placing our bet on this NFC North game at Sportsbook.ag. The Packers are underdogs on the road, but we still like them to win. We are going to bet 10 percent of our bankroll on Green Bay and the OVER 53 total points scored as these two high-powered offenses explode in this exciting matchup.
