With a playoff berth on the line, the Detroit Lions have much to play for on Sunday when they host the 2-10 Minnesota Vikings. Detroit has already beaten Minnesota once earlier in the season in Minneapolis. Now they get to face Minnesota in the friendly confines of Ford Field. SB Nation's odds partner Oddsshark has already installed the Lions as a strong double digit favorite in advance of Sunday:
The Vikings have been a toothless underdog in recent years and they have been patsies against divisional foes. Small wonder the Lions are big favorites on the Week 14 NFL odds menu.
Minnesota was a very slight favorite at home last week against Denver, but the Broncos prevailed late. Minnesota has unfortunately lost nine straight withing the NFC North as they have spiraled down after nearly making the Super Bowl two seasons ago. The Vikings are also banged up and must find a way to win without the services of Adrian Peterson.
