Ross Benjamin’s NFL Week 2 Perfect Mark
If you followed Ross Benjamin’s NFL week 2 articles, then congratulations. The veteran professional NFL prognosticator went a spotless 4-0 SU&ATS, and it included 3 outright underdog winners. Ross cashed in with Atlanta, Tennessee, Dallas, and Houston.


Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers
The Lions (1-1) and Packers (1-1) will square off Sunday in an NFC North battle on Sunday. The opening kickoff at Lambeau Field in Green Bay is slated for 1:00 PM ET.  Detroit is 3-2 in their previous 5 games against Green Bay. One of those Lions victories came on 11/15 of last year at Lambeau Field. By virtue of that 18-16 win, Detroit put an end to a 24-game losing streak at Lambeau Field. The preceding 4 times these division rivals met in Green Bay resulted in 3 of those contests staying under the total.


Recent Team Trends
Detroit has covered their last 4 games as a road underdog, and that includes going 3-0 SU&ATS during its past 3. It’s worth noting, the aforementioned 18-16 win at Green Bay last November came as a sizable 10.0-point underdog.

Green Bay was a dismal 0-3 SU&ATS at home a season ago when facing fellow NFC North teams. Additionally, all of those contests went under the total, and there were just a combined 32.3 points scored per game. As a matter of fact, Green Bay has gone under the total in 6 straight games as a home favorite.


NFL Betting Angle and Pick
At the time of this writing (9/21), NFL betting odds at 5 Dimes displays Green Bay as an 8.5-point favorite, and there’s a total of 48.0. The Packers are coming off a 17-14 division loss at Minnesota last Sunday night. Meanwhile, Detroit was upset at home 16-15 by Tennessee last week.

Any home team with a total of 43.0 to 49.0, playing against a divisional opponent, and they scored 36 points or less in their previous game, versus a team that scored 41 points or less in their last contest, resulted in those games going 35-8 (81.4%) under the total since 2012.

Green Bay has only been able to amass 294 and 263 yards of total offense through its first 2 games. I’m of the opinion, this present Packers defense is a vastly underrated unit. Green Bay held their first 2 opponents (Jaguars, Vikings) to 20.0 points and 316.0 total yards per game.

I like this game to be a low-scoring affair, and one of my NFL week 3 predictions will be further indicative that inclination.
