MINTY BETS: We've got some Monday Night Football, as the Packers host the Lions. The Packers are 11 and 1/2 favorites and the total is 48. I'm Minty here with Jared and Pam, and we're here to give you our best bets. Pam, let's start with you. What's your best bet for this game?

- Going to Jared Goff on the road? Yes, I am. Backdoor covers are absolutely an option. This is a division rival, and head coach Dan Campbell, he showed me last week that this team is not just going to roll over and die. Instead, they're going to put up a fight. And that's what I want to see from an underdog.

You have a veteran quarterback in Goff, who at least knows how to run the two minute drill. This is a team who can run well. They have just under five yards per carry. And Green Bay last week allowed 170 rushing yards, 4.4 yards per rush. And New Orleans, they were first in early down runs. Green Bay couldn't stop it. I think the Lions do have success on the ground here in this game. 11 and 1/2 point Dogs, I'll take it.

MINTY BETS: I don't hate that pick, Pam. I actually think the Packers bounce back. But I don't think they cover. And I don't want to spend my hard earned money on Detroit. So I'm more confident in the over. Now, Detroit can't stop anyone. And if they can't be stopped, they can certainly put some points on the board as well. This match-up has favored the over in 7 out of their last 12 meetings, so give me the over. Jared, what do you think.

JARED QUAY: I don't like either one of y'all picks, all right? Y'all are usually smart so it makes me worry about my pick. But you know what? I'm going for it, all right? I seen Jimmy Garoppolo slice the Lions defense. If Jimmy G can do that, just wait and see what Aaron Rodgers is going to do. Aaron Rodgers after a loss goes ham. I like the Packers to bounce back. I think the Saints team was better than we thought.

And I think this Lions team is worse than we think. So therefore I actually like the Packers to win by at least 14.
