The Lions are going to be out for blood this week. They really got robbed on Monday night by the refs and I think they are going to be loaded for bear to grab a much-needed NFC North win here. A home division loss here, and they face a massive up-hill battle the rest of the year. The Vikings come in off an impressive 38-20 victory over Philadelphia while Detroit lost. The result is a line that is off here. Let's not forget that the Lions could very well be 4-1 coming into this game. They tied Arizona in their opener, scoring 27 points, and last week the refs handed a win over to Green Bay. I'm not saying Detroit is a great team by any means, but there is line value here as they are underrated. The linesmakers opened Detroit as the favorite but the betting public has moved the line 3 points and it's unwarranted. Minnesota is 1-2 on th eroad, scoring just 16.7 points per game away from home. The Lions have put up 26.3 points per game in their last three as the offense has found rhythm. The Vikings went OVER by 14 points against the Eagles and the Lions have gone OVER their last five times when playing on Sunday after a Monday night game. Minnesota is 7-1-1 ATS over its last nine October games and 17-8-3 ATS the last 28 meetings with the Lions. Take the Lions and the OVER.
