Despite a superior record, the Minnesota Vikings are six-point underdogs heading into Sunday's NFC North showdown against the Detroit Lions.

Despite a 2-1 record, the Minnesota Vikings find themselves as six-point underdogs in Week 4, as they head to Ford Field to take on the Detroit Lions in an NFC North showdown.

Christian Ponder and the Vikings are coming off of a Week 3 win over the San Francisco 49ers -- an upset win that few expected. Ponder's play is one of the main reasons for Minnesota's success this season, completing 70.1% of his passes for 713 yards. Ponder has thrown four touchdowns without throwing an interception.

The Lions are coming off a heartbreaking 44-41 overtime loss to the Tennessee Titans. Lions starting quarterback Matthew Stafford was forced from the loss in the fourth quarter with a hip injury, but is expected to play on Sunday, as the Lions look to improve to 2-2.

The 1-2 Lions have disappointed some bettors this year, going 0-3 against the spread so far. The Vikings haven't fared much better, going just 1-2 against the spread -- despite a 2-1 record.
