PICK: I’ll probably stick with Detroit. Also probably not going near this one, though; there’s not a lot to get excited about here. In any case, Detroit is sitting on a three-game losing streak but they’ve scored well lately. The Titans have 75 or more points in five of their last six games and should post a decent total in this one as well. As for Green Bay, they haven’t been able to pass 61 points during this three-game losing streak and haven’t given too many reasons for optimism lately. I don’t see the Phoenix getting close here.
