NFL Football Detroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings Start Time, Odds, Free NFL Pick

The Minnesota Vikings are hosting the Detroit Lions in NFL Football action on Sunday. The game is scheduled for a 1:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised live on FOX. The NFL Odds for the game have the Vikings listed as a big favorite to pick up the win here over the rival Lions.

NFL Odds
Minnesota -6.5
Total: 43 points

The Detroit Lions have trailed in the fourth quarter of every game this season. Despite that, the Lions are still 4-4 on the season and are looking to pull an upset here. Minnesota has really struggled recently, losing two straight but still remaining atop the NFC North standings. Minnesota is replacing its offensive coordinator as Norv Turnver resigned his post earlier this week.

The Vikings have dealt with some very serious injuries this season and to be where they are right now is pretty special. Matt Stafford and the Lions are going to throw the football a ton in this game, mostly because they really don’t have a good run game. 

Detroit does own three wins in the last four games overall, but a loss last week at Houston showcased the one-dimensional play for the Lions which could be a problem here aginst a really strong defense.

Free Pick: Vikings
