Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions Thanksgiving BetsThe Packers take their magical act on the road Thanksgiving Day when they tackle the upstart Lions in the Motor City.

The good news for Cheesehead fans is the fact that Turkey Day favorites off back-to-back wins are a mindboggling 17-1 SU and 16-2 ATS since 1988.

Meanwhile, the Lions have been basted like turkeys on Thanksgiving Day, going 0-7 SU and ATS the last seven years.

That’s enough to cause major indigestion for dog lovers like us, for sure.

However, being the contrarians we are, we’re quick to point out that Green Bay has been outgained in four of its last fi ve games while allowing season high – or 2nd high – yards in fi ve of its last seven contests.

A shaky vote for the young Lions as they improve to 5-1 ATS in their last six as home dogs the last two seasons. Now pass the wishbone and let the game begin.

Oddsmakers currently have the Packers listed as 6-point favorites versus the Lions, while the game's total is sitting at 55.

Betting trends to consider:
Green Bay is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games
