Minnesota Vikings Vs. Detroit Lions: Sharp Action On Minnesota
The Minnesota Vikings are tied for the title of biggest favorites of the week in their game against the Detroit Lions. NFL betting sites are seeing a lot of action on the Lions, but not nearly the same amount of money as what’s on the Vikings.
Vikings Vs. Lions Moneyline
- Minnesota Vikings -470
- Detroit Lions +345
Minnesota is receiving just 13% of the bets on the moneyline but is holding 85% of the money. Similar, but less extreme, action is on the spread as the Vikings -10.0 line is seeing 62% of the money on just 43% of the bets. It seems as if the sharp bettors are siding with Minnesota in this game on both the moneyline and spread.
The kick-off is scheduled for Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EST and will air on FOX.
Pittsburgh Steelers Vs. Denver Broncos: Reverse Line Movement
In one of the more interesting and confusing lines of the week, the Pittsburgh Steelers are now underdogs to the Denver Broncos despite opening as the favorite and receiving most of the handle. Online betting sites are seeing reverse line movement in this game.
Steelers Vs. Broncos Moneyline Odds
- Pittsburgh Steelers EVEN
- Denver Broncos -120
