LOOK: Las Vegas point spread shifts for Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers

Most believed that the Green Bay Packers would be favored over the Detroit Lions when they square off this coming Sunday at Ford Field. That was the case (barely) when the spread was first released by the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas as the Packers opened as a 1-point favorite over the Lions. That line quickly grew to 1.5 points and has bounced back and forth between the two over that past few days.

That is until Thursday.

Now, according to the Westgate Superbook, the Lions vs. Packers game is listed as a pick’em. This, of course, means that neither team is favored in the game, at least for betting purposes.







Nation, does Las Vegas know something that we do not? Do the Lions really have a coin-flip chance of beating the Packers this coming Sunday?


Green Bay Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers loves him some ‘Matty Stafford’

This coming Sunday, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers will invade Ford Field to take on Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions.

Rodgers has long been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and is considered to be one of the greatest signal-callers of all time. After all, he has two NFL MVP awards, has been to the Pro Bowl six times, and has a Super Bowl championship to his name.

Stafford, on the other hand, despite putting up gaudy numbers throughout his career, has yet to really get the respect he has earned. He has yet to lead the Lions to a playoff victory and many (who are clueless and do not understand that football is a team sport) blame him.

Well, Rodgers happens to be quite the fan of Stafford and he is not afraid to say so.
