On Sunday, the Vikings will try to bounce back from last week’s loss when they take on the Lions at home. Live betting fans saw that last Thursday, Minnesota lost to the Packers 42-10 as the underdogs by nine points, but in their past five games with Detroit they were 4-1 ATS.
Detroit’s betting line opened as them being the favorites by three points, but the total was not yet known.
The Lions are better off, but the Vikings were still able to win three of their last four games. Many experts believe that what the Lions should do is work on making a simpler offense to ease the pressure on QB Matthew Stafford.
This should happen if the team rests WR Calvin Johnson, who is struggling with an injury to the ankle. Stafford must make some very good improvements, and many fans know that it wouldn’t hurt at all for them to use the services of a proper kicker who can score field goals when necessary. The Lions decided to no longer use Alex Henery after the kicker ended up missing three field goals last week when they were defeated by the Bills 17-14, and he’s set to be replaced by Detroit before they take on Minnesota.
This season, the Vikings were able to show sparks of the potential that they have on the field in two victories, while the team fell to pieces in three games that they ended up losing.
It isn’t known which Vikings will be the ones to that the fans will see on Sunday – they could be the ones who demolished the Falcons 41-28 two weeks ago at home, or they could also be the ones that who had a dominant defense in the last two weeks in losses to the Saints and the Patriots, and many Live betting fans can’t wait to find out.
For the Vikings, scoring points will prove to be vital, and this will be subject to who will be under center for the Vikings – Christian Ponder, who was still struggling last week against the Packers, or Teddy Bridgewater.
