For NFL fans who don’t really have a dog in the fight, there is nothing better than watching divisional races that are tight from start to finish. When you get into that situation, you end up with a Wild Card race that becomes really exciting in the final few weeks of the season. It’s a little too early to be talking about the playoffs, but we can certainly talk about the divisional battles that already look as though they are going to go right down to the final week.
The AFC South is one of those divisions, which is not entirely unexpected, with the other close battle going on in the NFC North. This is another division that we expected to be tight, but it’s even closer than we expected. It is the Green Bay Packers who have the lead right now, but after 5 weeks, all 4 teams have a winning record. Things are going to change again this weekend when the Detroit Lions go on the road to face the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. The Packers are favored by 4 points, with the point total set at 47.

Why bet on the Detroit Lions?The Detroit Lions come into this week with a 2-1-1 record, but they are probably a little unfortunate not to be sitting with a perfect record at this stage of the season. They started the year with a game against the Arizona Cardinals that they looked to have in hand before gassing a lead in the 4th quarter and finishing in a tie. They then won back to back games before losing a close one to the Kansas City Chiefs in their last game.
The Lions have won 4 of their last 5 meetings with the Packers, but things are not quite so good at Lambeau, where they have won just 3 times in their last 20 visits. They are, though, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in Green Bay, as well as being 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on the road overall.

Why bet on the Green Bay Packers?This is a season of change for the Packers with a new head coach in charge, and while there have been some rough patches, especially on the offensive side of the football, they have still managed to get off to a 4-1 start. The opening game of the season, a 10-3 win over the Chicago Bears, showed that there were going to be some growing pains for the new offense that has been put in place.
Aaron Rodgers and company appear to have settled into a groove now, though, as they are averaging a touch over 27 PPG in the 4 games following the Week 1 win. Conference games tend to be low-scoring for the Packers, though, with 6 of their last 9 versus conference foes going UNDER, as well as 5 of their last 5 versus the NFC North.
