Lions vs. Packers: Reverse line movement (0:56)

Doug Kezirian is backing the Packers with a point spread that he feels has moved too much. (0:56)

The 2019 NFL season rolls on, and we're here with a betting preview for Monday night's game on ESPN between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

Joe Fortenbaugh and Doug Kezirian offer their best bets.

Note: Odds courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook. Odds as of Sunday.

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers (-3.5, 45.5)

Lions +3.5

Fortenbaugh: The Lions have had two weeks to prepare for this game and currently outrank the Packers in scoring, yards per play and third-down conversion percentage, to name a few key offensive categories. On the defensive side of the ball, both franchises are tied for 16th in opponent yards per play, but take note that Detroit held reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes to a pedestrian 57.1% completion rate with zero touchdown passes (third time in 23 career starts) in Week 4. The Lions have covered the number in each of their past four meetings with the Packers and are 3-0 ATS overall since their 27-27 overtime tie at Arizona in Week 1.
