Tracking the reasons behind NFL odds movement in Week 18 can be more difficult that most other weeks, creating a bit of a puzzle when examining betting market activity.

Due to differing goals in terms of improving seeding, making the playoffs altogether or simply evaluating talent, teams are motivated for varying reasons during the final week of the regular season.

This also has an effect on NFL odds movement as sportsbooks are constantly adjusting for key pieces of news, like who will be starting at quarterback for each team.

Because of this, the afternoon slate for NFL Week 18 is a bit of a mess in terms of interpreting market activity for value.

On the other hand, the smartest NFL prediction for Lions vs. Packers is much more clear according to Action Network’s PRO betting tools.

Lions vs. Packers Pick

The motivation for both Detroit and Green Bay is pretty simple.

If the Packers win, they’re in the playoffs no matter what else happens.

The Lions need the Rams to upset the Seahawks in the 4:25 p.m. ET window, which would then create a win-and-in scenario for Detroit as well.

With that said, there’s also reason to believe that Dan Campbell would be thrilled to spoil the Packers’ playoff hopes even if the Lions are eliminated, and thanks to a betting system with a 59% win rate, here’s the surprising way that bettors can take advantage.

The key to this NFL prediction is the familiarity between these two NFC North rivals.
