Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00 ET. The favorite is 4-1-1 ATS the last six times these teams have squared off and the over is 5-2 in these teams’ last seven meetings. The Lions (0-4 SU, 0-4 ATS) began the post Matt Millen era last Sunday at home for an NFL betting contest with the Chicago Bears, who were favored by 3.5 points, with the ‘total’ set at 45.5.
Down 24-0 in the third quarter, Lions quarterback Jon Kitna threw an interception (his fifth so far this season) that Bears cornerback Charles Tillman ran back 26 yards for a touchdown to put the Bears up 31-0.
Detroit scored a touchdown after that, a 12 yard run by running back Kevin Smith, but it was no consolation; the Chicago Bears beat the Detroit Lions 34-7 and covered the football betting line in the process with ease.
The Minnesota Vikings (2-3 SU, 2-3 ATS) were in the Big Easy for a Monday Night football betting showdown with the Saints; New Orleans was forecasted to be three-point favorites and the ‘total’ went off the board at 47 per the closing NFL odds.
The Saints got on the scoreboard first on a 17 yard Drew Brees touchdown pass to wide receiver Devery Henderson. New Orleans was down 20-10 with two minutes to go in the third quarter when Reggie Bush returned a punt 71 yards for a touchdown to put his team within three points of the lead.
Down three points at the beginning of the fourth quarter, Bush did it again, this time from 64 yards out to give the Saints the lead! However, Minnesota came back and was able to win the game in the last minute on a Ryan Longwell field goal. The final score was 30-27.
Football bettors who took Minnesota, straight up and getting the points, were happy to win. The Minnesota Vikings are favored over the Detroit Lions by a whopping 13.5-points, with the ‘total’ standing pat at 47.
