The Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions meet in Week 14 of the NFL season. Kick off is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, December 11 from Ford Field. DraftKings Sportsbook point spread has the Lions as a 2.5-point favorite and the point total is 52.5.

The Vikings have now won back-to-back games and are sitting comfortably atop the NFC North through 12 games. Minnesota’s two-game winning streak effectively wiped away the memory of their blowout loss to the Cowboys a few weeks back, but a win this week is not entirely ensured. Sunday’s matchup marks the second time these two teams have faced each other, and while Minnesota got the win back in Week 3 it came via a close 28-24 final score.

The Lions have won four of their last five games and come into Sunday as one of the most high-powered scoring offenses in the last three weeks. Over their previous three games, Detroit ranks second in scoring with an average of 32.0 points per game. They have scored 25+ points in four straight games and will look to keep the momentum rolling in what could very well be a high-scoring affair with a talented Vikings offense.

Below is a rundown of current odds information for Vikings-Lions. You can see how the point spread, point total, and moneyline odds have all moved since the lookahead line posted last week.
