Free Picks: Lions vs. Packers Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers has a sports betting pick Thursday is on the Detroit Lions (+6) to Green Bay.

Reasoning: This game is going to be extremely tough for Detroit, even being in Ford Field, but to get almost a full touchdown with their talent and a raucous crowd is enough to give it a go. The Lions will stay close enough to the Packers asserts handicapper

The Packers are great and I wouldn’t say anything different. Aaron Rodgers is the hands down MVP and Mike McCarthy’s club is even better than the one that won the Super Bowl last season. Jermichael Finley among a few others are back from injury and the Green Bay offense is nothing less than phenomenal. Throw in an at least decent running game this season and it’s no wonder that the Pack are the clear cut favorite to win it all once again.

But with the above said it’s never easy sledding on the road and especially up against what is going to be an insane crowd. I couldn’t have been any more impressed with these fans in that Monday night game against the Bears last month. It’s as if these guys have been starved of anything for years and years and now have finally been able to get some food making them ravage like a beast and go absolutely bonkers.

As for on the field Matthew Stafford has the makings of a star and Calvin Johnson is already a star. Throw in Kevin Smith who had the game of his life last week after being called off of the scrap heap and a defense that can bring it led by Ndamakong Su and Nick Fairley and it’s no fluke that the Lions are improved dramatically and boast a 7-3 record. These guys aren’t as good as today’s opponent, I fully recognize that. Green Bay may very well go a perfect 16-0, if not 19-0 when all is said and done, but the Packers aren’t invincible and if they are ever going to lose this is as good of a spot for that to happen as any.

Home dog along with a raucous crowd and a talented team plus more than a handful? I’ll take my chances.

Top expert pick on this game: Detroit

For more information: There is no more powerful or potent play in my arsenal than a 500,000* and today I’m going to bomb away with it and improve the current run to 13-6. Last week I released one on Kansas State and told you how I fully expected them to win outright as the 8-point pup and they did just that in Austin against Texas. Today I have another monstrous 500k that will bank going away and I mean going away. Only one play needed today and it’s involving the 49ers and Ravens in a game that will be a burial or an outright with no in-between! Click now to purchase Matt Rivers lock
