Detroit Lions vs Green Bay Packers Team News:

Green Bay packers

Green Bay Packers have a couple of injuries to report. Tight End Josiah Deguara is doubtful for the game with a shin injury. Experienced defensive lineman Kenny Clark's status is very likley to miss out as he did not practise in either Wednesday or Thursday's practise sessions.

Doubtful: Josiah Degura(TE)

Out: Kenny Clark(DL)

Detroit Lions

Detroit Lions too have injury related headaches of their own to deal with, star wide reciever Kenny Golladay is doubtful with a hamstring injury which kept him out of the first game. New experienced signing cornerback Desmond Trufant is also suffering from a hamstring injury. Lions do have some good news though their 3rd overall pick from the 2020 draft cornerback, Jeff Okudah, is fit to start this game.

Doubtful: Kenny Golladay(WR), Desmond Trufant(CB)

Out: None

Detroit Lions vs Green Bay Packers Prediction:

Green Bay Packers with 2-time MVP Aaron Rodgers and 3-time Pro Bowler wide reciever Davante Adams manning the sideline are favorites in this matchup. Detroit Lions are expected to be without star wide reciever Kenny Golladay & their running back is still an unreliable 3 man commitee.

With the over/under set at 47.5, this game is expected to be a high scoring one, the Packers moneyline set at -250 (bet $250 win $100) is considered to be one of the safer NFL bets this week.

Prediction: Green Bay Packers to win
