Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers | 8:15pm | ESPN
Monday Night Football has failed to deliver save for the opening week of the season when the Raiders and Saints came out victorious. It’s been all downhill since with the 49ers kicking the ever living tar out of the Browns only making it that much tougher to get excited for the week’s concluder. Leave it to a couple of NFC North entrants to change that all up! The Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers will dig in against one another this Monday night in a game that will decide the division leader with the Packers holding a one-game advantage in the standings due to Matt Patricia’s squad settling for a tie with the Arizona Cardinals back in Week 1. Green Bay is currently a 4-point favorite with the game total lined at 47.
Since coughing up an 18-point fourth quarter lead in the desert, the Lions have played some inspired football. They managed to win an ugly defensive grinder 13-10 against the Los Angeles Chargers in their home opener the following week, and then followed it up with a solid showing in the City of Brotherly Love where they scored an enormous 27-24 outright win and cover as 4-point underdogs. While the team managed to cover the closing NFL odds a week later at home against Kansas City, the fact that it allowed Patrick Mahomes and company to escape Ford Field with the “W” came as mostly disappointing. They will have had two weeks to prepare for this matchup and will enter it having gone 6-1 SU and ATS following their last seven bye weeks.
A drastically improved defense paired with an offense that’s been nothing short of adequate has allowed for the Packers to get out to solid 4-1 SU and ATS starts to their 2019 campaign. The season kicked off with an ugly 10-3 defensive win in Chicago, but was then followed up with 21-16 and 27-16 wins and covers against the Vikings and Broncos respectively. Matt LaFleur then suffered his first defeat as the Packers shot caller when the Philadelphia Eagles went into Lambeau Field and logged the 34-27 outright victory as 3.5-point dogs by scoring the game’s only points in the fourth quarter. Though linemakers had them installed underdogs in Dallas last week, the Packers let it be known quickly that they were the better of the two teams after getting out to a 24-0 lead before holding on for the 34-24 win and cover.
You can bet your bottom dollar the Packers come to play in this one knowing full well they’ve dropped each of their last four decisions against their division rivals. Detroit swept the rivalry a year ago by logging the 31-23 win at home as 1-point favorites, and then followed it up by pitching a shutout in Lambeau the final week of the season. Green Bay has failed to win or cover each of the last two times it welcomed Detroit onto the “Frozen Tundra” to fall to 1-3 SU and ATS the last four times; the O/U split in all four matchups. Dating back to last year, the Lions have gone a lucrative 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and they check in 5-2 ATS in their last seven MNF appearances. On the flipside, the Packers have dropped five of their last seven Monday night showings ATS but the favorite has gone a bankroll boosting 19-7 ATS the last 26 times these division rivals squared off against one another with the over cashing for total bettors six of the last seven times.
