Vikings vs Lions Key Stats

Though it hasn't always been pleasant, Minnesota have continued to find a way to win, and they currently hold the second-best record in the NFL going into Sunday's divisional matchup. With four weeks remaining in the season, a win would help Minnesota secure the division. The Vikings were able to hold on against yet another AFC East opponent last week while playing the Jets at home.

Minnesota are still very much in the running for the top NFC seed, but in order to do so, they will need Philadelphia Eagles to lose most of their remaining games because they now own the tiebreaker thanks to their early-season victory over the Vikings. In terms of total offense this year, Minnesota are only 19th in the NFL.

Detroit appear to be a club that are gaining momentum as the season progresses. Dan Campbell, the NFL's feel-good story after starring in the NFL Hard Knocks series, will be pleased to see his aggressive coaching style beginning to pay off. When they thrashed the Jaguars 40–15, they made it clear that they meant business.

Detroit are once again in the running for a postseason place after winning four of their last five games. This season, the Lions are experiencing something unique, particularly on offense. Detroit currently rank seventh in the league for total offense, with the eighth-best passing attack and the tenth-best rushing attack.

Vikings vs Lions Betting Prediction

Minnesota have survived this season by eking out one close victory after another, but they have also surrendered a ton of points in the process. Despite only going 3-4 straight up, Detroit are 5-2 against the spread at home this year.

It would be wise to back Detroit, who have embraced their coach and need this victory much more than Minnesota do to maintain their postseason aspirations. This is a matchup between the two worst defensive units in the NFL in terms of yards allowed. Today's moneyline for Detroit seems quite appealing.

Pick: Detroit Lions -125
