Monday Night Football Props: Mims picks Lions vs Packers, Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, Aaron Jones
The NFL Monday Night Football game has the Detroit Lions playing the Green Bay Packers.
The numbers are Green Bay -11.5 with a total of 48.5. The money line is Packers -600 & Lions +425. Green Bay is the home team. Green Bay has won their last four straight meetings.
Injury Report: Packers Safety Vernon Scott is out with a hamstring injury. Darnell Savage and Lucas Patrick were both listed as questionable on the injury report list. For the Lions, WR Tyrell Williams and DL Kevin Strong are out with concussions.
Notes: Jamaal Williams is looking for revenge against his former team. The Lions average 4.9 rushing yard per carry in week one. Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams should be able to take advantage of a depleted Lions secondary.
Coaching: Matt LaFleur has the edge over Dan Campbell.
Prop Bets: Davante Adams under/over passing yards set at 84.5. The price is over at -120. Take him over. The total point for Green Bay is set at 30.5. Price is +100. The Packers offense shows up this week and goes over. Aaron Jones over 67.5 rushing yards. The price is -115. Take him over.
My Take on the Game: Packers were bad last week against the Saints. The extra day to prepare will benefit Rodgers. The Lions showed heart in battling against the Niners to make a blowout become respectable. If the Pack can pressure Jared Goff into mistakes, this could get ugly. Take Packers money line and over.
Public Opinion: Lions are being taken by 54% of the people selecting this game. 51% of the money is in the Packers.
