The Lions (8-8) will enter Week 18 with a chance at a playoff spot with a Sunday night victory and a Seattle Seahawks loss to Los Angeles Rams on Sunday afternoon, so they’ll know if they’re still alive for the postseason prior to game time. Detroit won four of its last five games including a 41-10 victory over the Chicago Bears last week as Jared Goff threw three touchdown passes, and Jamaal Williams rushed for 144 yards with a TD.
The Packers (8-8) playoff scenario is fairly simple. If Green Bay wins, it will be in the playoffs. If Green Bay loses, it will miss the playoffs. The Packers went into December with a 4-8 record but rallied with four consecutive victories including last week’s blowout win over the Minnesota Vikings 41-17 with a defensive and special teams touchdown. Aaron Jones rushed for 111 yards, while AJ Dillon found the end zone on 41 yards rushing.
The Packers are 4.5-point favorites on DraftKings Sportsbook with -215 moneyline odds, making the Lions +185 underdogs. The over/under is set at 49.
