Detroit Lions open as underdogs against Green Bay Packers

After losing on Sunday to the Miami Dolphins, the Detroit Lions are now 1-6 on the season, which puts them in dead last place in the NFC North (and the entire NFL, for that matter). In Week 9, the Lions will attempt to snap their five-game losing streak when they host the hated Green Bay Packers at Ford Field. The opening point spread has been released and the Lions are currently an underdog to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.

How many points are the Green Bay Packers favored by over the Detroit Lions?

Though the Packers are struggling so far in 2022, it comes as no surprise that they are favored over the Lions, who just cannot seem to win a close game.

According to our friends at Draft Kings, the Packers have opened as a 3.5-point favorite over the Lions.
