After winning three games straight, the Vikings saw their hot spell come to an end on Sunday Night Football at the hands of Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. As a 2.5-point underdog at home, Minnesota fell by a margin of 30-20. Previous to this, Minnesota had won games at Philadelphia, against Arizona, and then once again on the road at the New York Jets.
Reasons To Avoid Detroit
The Lions are in a position to fall prey to an overreaction by what transpired in the Twin Cities here, last week. Minnesota is bound to be cast aside by many this week after getting defeated handily in a primetime spot that was viewed by the masses. Given Detroit’s relevance in this series as a whole, the points simply will seem more savory here even if there is a clear-cut mismatch between the two participants.
Reasons To Back Minnesota
Against Detroit, Russell Wilson who is primarily a running quarterback that manages the game looked flawless. Wilson went 14 for 17, throwing for 248 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions. Now Detroit has to go against a team with a far more proficient passer in Vikings signal-caller Kirk Cousins. Cousins looked fantastic against the Saints as he threw for 359 yards, two touchdowns, and just one pick. This is a favorable match-up for Minnesota to exploit at home with a loud following behind them.
Detroit at Minnesota Prediction 11/04/2018
After this week, Minnesota gets a bye to get itself ready for the second half of its 2018 campaign. They open with a pivotal match-up on the road at Chicago, and then they host Green Bay. This is a Minnesota football team that was touted by many to be a potential Super Bowl participant in the pre-season. The Vikings can all but put them in prime position to win the division yet again if they take care of business in their next three outings. We have to like the motivation for Minnesota to do so at home against the weakest of the lot in the NFC North. Swallow the points.
