The 2-3 Minnesota Vikings will be gunning for their seventh SU win in their last eight home games when they face the 3-2 Detroit Lions on Sunday afternoon. The Vikings were without rookie QB Teddy Bridgewater in a brutal 42-10 loss to Green Bay last week, but the 21-year-old, who looked solid in a 41-28 win over Atlanta in Week 4, is expected to be ready to return against Detroit.
The Lions, who blew an 11-point halftime lead in a 17-14 loss to Buffalo last week, have struggled both on the road and against Minnesota. Detroit are 1-4, SU and ATS, in their last five road games, and a dismal 1-15 SU in their last 16 visits to Minnesota.
The Minnesota Vikings are 2-3 so far on the season, and 2-3 ATS vs the point spread. The Detroit Lions, meanwhile, are 3-2 and 3-2 ATS. Those over under betting have seen Minnesota go 2-3 and the Detroit Lions go 1-4 on the totals.
