NFL odds Week 10: Lions vs. Vikings

Tim Fuller-US PRESSWIRE

The Vikings opened as a slight home favorite against Detroit, but the line has since shifted toward the Lions.

Despite coming off back-to-back losses, the Minnesota Vikings opened as a 2-1/2-point favorite against Detroit. The line, however, has shifted toward the Lions as Sunday approaches.

Detroit is as high as a 2-point favorite, according to the latest odds from OddsShark.com. Recent performance likely outweighs home-field advantage in this case as Detroit is coming off back-to-back wins while the Vikings have lost two straight games.

Even though it is favored, Detroit will still have to overcome recent history. Minnesota has won 13 of its last 14 home games against the Lions, while going 7-5-2 against the spread over that period. The Vikings have dominated the matchup, home or away recently, winning 17 of their last 21 games against the Lions. Both teams have struggled against the spread recently. Detroit is 4-10-1 in its last 15 games against the spread while Minnesota is 1-3-1 in its last five games against the spread.

The total for Sunday's game opened at 47 points. The total has gone under in seven of the last nine games between the teams, but it has gone over in 12 of Detroit's last 15 road games. The total has gone over in three of the last four games for both teams.
