Advantage

The Lions have a slight advantage in this game for a few reasons. First, they have a more balanced offense, with a strong running game and a passing game that is led by Jared Goff, who has been playing well this season. Second, the Lions’ defense has been solid, ranking 11th in total yards allowed per game.

The Packers, on the other hand, have struggled to run the ball and their passing game has been inconsistent. Additionally, the Packers are dealing with a number of injuries, including to key players like Elgton Jenkins and Jaire Alexander.

Prediction

I predict that the Lions will win this game. I believe that the Lions’ balanced offense will be too much for the Packers’ defense to handle. Additionally, I think that the Lions’ defense will be able to generate enough pressure on Jordan Love to force him into mistakes.

Over/Under

I predict that the game will go over the total.  Both teams have offenses that are capable of putting up points, and I think that the Packers’ defense will be vulnerable to the Lions’ passing game.

Overall, I think that the Lions have the better team and should be able to win this game. However, the Packers are playing at home and they are always a dangerous team, even when they are struggling.
