The Thursday Night Football kick off to Week 4 of the 2023 NFL season is tonight with the Detroit Lions visiting the Green Bay Packers. An NFC North rivalry game should make for a good, especially with the Lions trying to prove they are competitors in the conference this year, while the Packers are trying to prove they are still in the running despite moving from quarterback Aaron Rodgers to Jordan Love this year.
Both teams enter the game with a 2-1 record, tied for the division lead. The Lions are favored by 2.5 points, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The point-total for the game is set at 45, with the Lions -142 on the moneyline while the Packers are +120.
Our straight-up winners picks pool continues this week, and every week between opening night of the season and the Super Bowl. While we make our straight up picks, we also have the ability to make picks against the spread and on the over/under for the game. You can check those out in the tabs on the widget below from Tallysight.
