2020 NFL Week 17: Minnesota Vikings @ Detroit Lions
Updated: Aug 5, 2021
Aligning with home dogs: Detroit Lions +4 -110
A couple of historically profitable systems highlight the Lions to cover versus the Vikings Sunday. We are betting accordingly.
First, in favor of the Lions, teams hitting the road after a home stand that culminated with a 20+ point loss have been solid wagers.
Detroit's 40-point home loss to the Bucs last week, before taking points from Minnesota Sunday, triggers a play on the Lions today.
This system has suffered only four losing seasons since 2005, has delivered an aggregate 13% long-term return and is 10-5 to date this year.
Additionally, teams shunned by the betting public after single-digit offensive performances have likewise proven strong bets in the past, good for a 12% long-term ROI.
This system experienced six losing years of the last 15 completed seasons, and is 4-2 in 2020-21.
