Detroit at Minnesota

Sunday 09/20 01:00 PM Eastern

1.5 units on Detroit +2.5 (-115) (risk 1.5 to return 2.8)  RESULT: LOSS

The Minnesota Vikings sure appeared listless on Monday Night against the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners struggled last year, and were expected to do so again this year, so the loss seems to be compounded because the Vikings were not able to do anything, and took five sacks. The Lions took charge in San Diego last week, and built an early 21-3 lead with offense and a defensive score. They looked to be on their way to an easy win, and then they imploded and never recovered, getting outscored 30-7 the rest of the way. We saw two teams in that game, the full potential of a team, and a team that forgot the game was four quarters long. I think we see the early version of that team for four quarters this week at the expense of a Minnesota team that has a short week to regroup off a horrid opener. Teams that score fewer than 14 points on Monday Night cover less than 45% in their next contest. As a result, go with Detroit in this one.
