Vikings at Lions OddsShark Matchup Report

Detroit Lions

The Lions have been a streaky team in 2017, starting the year off with a 3-1 SU and ATS run, going 0-3 SU and ATS over their next three games and then going 3-0 SU and 2-0-1 ATS over their last three.

Detroit is 1-3 SU and ATS in its last four games as an underdog, but the team’s one win over that stretch was as a 2.5-point underdog on the road against Minnesota back on October 1. Matthew Stafford is enjoying a great season on offense with 2,760 passing yards and 19 touchdowns with just five interceptions thus far.

Since 1934, the Lions have a 36-38-2 all-time record in Thanksgiving Day games. Detroit is a perfect 4-0 SU and ATS over its last four Thanksgiving games per the OddsShark NFL Database.

Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota extended its straight-up winning streak to six games and its ATS winning streak to five games with last Sunday’s 24-7 win at home over the Los Angeles Rams. It was an extremely impressive effort against one of the NFL’s best offenses, highlighting a Vikings defense that ranks fifth in the league in yards per game against with 290.5 and fourth in scoring defense allowing 17.2 points per game. The Vikings are just 2-7 ATS in their last nine games on the road.

Thursday’s total is set at 44.5 points. The UNDER is 7-1 in the last eight games between these two division rivals.

Both of these teams are playing well, and they will go strength vs. strength in Minnesota’s defense facing Detroit’s offense. Each of the last three games between the Lions and Vikings have been decided by a touchdown or less, and this one figures to be another close one.
