The NFL is wrapping up its Week 2 Sunday slate and Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football remain. In the meantime, we’ve got some early odds to get you ready for Week 3. The Lions and Vikings will face off this coming week, with kickoff set for 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Detroit bounced back from a tough Week 1 loss to win a wild one over Washington. Jared Goff threw four touchdowns and the team rushed for 191 yards in the 36-27 win. They’ll face a Vikings team that will play their Week 2 game on Monday.

DraftKings Sportsbook posted opening odds for this matchup earlier this week. Here’s a look at what the odds opened at and where they re-opened for Lions vs. Vikings in their Week 3 matchup.

This Detroit squad is gonna be a tough out every week. They gave the Eagles a ton of trouble in Week 1 and impressed in Week 2 in beating Washington. The Vikings don’t play until Monday, but I’m happy to get the helpful hook on this one.
