Vikings vs. Lions Free Pick
NFC North rivals clash at Ford Field today at 1:00PM ET as the Detroit Lions will host the Minnesota Vikings at 1:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, this game is now a pick'em after the Lions opened as 2.5-point home underdogs. As for the total, it opened at 44.5 and that's where the number currently sits.
Minnesota is 3-2 on the year and a profitable 4-1 against the spread, while Detroit is 1-5 overall and just 1-5 against the number. The Vikings are also 1-1 against the spread on the road this year while the Lions are winless at 0-3 ATS at home.
The Vikings are having issues moving the ball offensively but their defense ranks second in the NFL in points allowed (16.6). Perhaps the Lions' 26th-ranked run defense (120.7 YPG) is exactly what Adrian Peterson needs, although AP is questionable due to an illness. The Vikings are 6-2-1 against the spread in their last nine games versus the Lions and 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. If Teddy Bridgewater can avoid turning the ball over Minnesota shouldn't win outright.
