November 8, 2020 6:39 AM

NFL Predictions from 10,000 simulations

The Minnesota Vikings were ruthless and enter the week on a high as they look to host the Detroit Lions.

It was a huge game from the boys in purple and gold as they not only covered their spread but won, too (we called it... just saying)! They’ll take that confidence into a matchup against a disappointing Detroit unit that lost its 7th-straight home game.

💪 Spread

The Vikes are 4-3 against the spread this season, so season history is on their side thanks to a good showing last week. The Lions aren’t as favorable, boasting a 3-4 tally ATS. When our supercomputer simulated this game 10,000 times at the beginning of the week the average margin sat around 3 points in favour of Minnesota. If the bookies hold this spread at +/- 4 points, it could be worth playing the Lions in this scenario.

While it’s not an NFC North battle that will cause too big a stir, there’s no reason why you can’t be the real winner out of this clash. Dalvin Cook was straight-up 🔥🔥🔥 last week against Green Bay with 4 TDs – the most in a single game in Vikings history.
