Detroit Lions O/U 19.5 points
The Lions may be on the road this week against a tough divisional opponent, but they do have some offensive upside. They lost their starting tailback for this game and some in the future, but the Packers are dealing with some injuries as well.
Clay Matthews, Morgan Burnett, Sam Shields have all been ruled out, while Letroy Guillon is listed as doubtful. If he misses, that's four defensive starters, including their nose tackle, middle linebacker, safety and best cornerback. If the Lions and Matt Stafford can't exploit that, I don't know what else to think about this Lions team.
The Packers have already given up 23 points to the Jags this season and while Jacksonville's offense might be better than Detroit's, but Stafford has played really well against the Packers over his last three games against them. Dating back to Week 17 in 2014, Stafford has thrown for 679 yards with seven touchdowns and only one pick in his last three games against the Packers. Sure, those were with Calvin Johnson, but for me, with the Packers' defense so banged up right now, this is a great play for Sunday afternoon.

Seattle Seahawks O/U 26.5 points
The Seahawks' points total for Week 3 is kind of high considering how bad they have looked over the first two weeks. So, while this is possibly my square play of the week in team props, I still think the over looks like a great play here.
The Panthers' offense decimated the Niners last week and while I do not expect 46 points from the Seahawks here at home, I do think 27-30 is reasonable for this offense if they can get going. They will be without Thomas Rawls, but Christine Michael has been running like a man wanting to rejoin the top young running backs list and he should see a ton of work against this Niners' front.
On the flip side, this has to be the game where Russell Wilson gets it going. While Wilson's performance against his divisional rival, the Niners, he has played well against them over the last few years and he also tends to run a lot against them too. Their defense will likely step up too this week now that they are back home, giving extra scoring opportunities to this Seahawks offense.
