The Minnesota Vikings enter Sunday’s Week 3 home matchup with the Detroit Lions as two-point favorites, according to My Bookie. If you’re a straight-up gambler, Minnesota is -130 favorites while Detroit is +110 underdogs.
The Vikings are one of the toughest teams to evaluate thus far in 2017. At home against two mediocre teams, they’ve been electric and looked like a championship-caliber team. But in their one road game against a more challenging opponent, Minnesota looked like a bottom feeder.
Detroit, meanwhile, has played like an elite football team all season. They ran away from Arizona for an easy Week 1 victory and then marched past the New York Giants on Monday Night in Week 2. The Lions are inches from boasting an undefeated record after Golden Tate’s last-second touchdown effort was stopped just short of the end zone against undefeated Atlanta last week.
