Our picks for Packers vs. Lions

Pick against the spread: Packers -3.5

Green Bay has already locked everything up for the playoffs and have effectively nothing to play for this week. Conventional wisdom would suggest that the starters will be rested this week but head coach Matt LeFleur has insisted that they will play this week, although it’s not clear for how long.

The popular play will be to take the Lions to cover in this situation but the Packers have the capability to establish a cushion and maintain it, even if Aaron Rodgers and company are pulled at halftime. Take the points with the Pack.

Over/under: Under 45

These are already two under-friendly teams and with the Packers most likely taking their starters out in this one, it will most likely be a low-scoring affair. Lean into the under.
