Why sportsbooks are rooting hard for the Detroit Lions on Sunday

On Sunday, the Detroit Lions will host the Minnesota Vikings in what will be each team's final game of the 2020 regular season.

When the opening point spread was released for the game, the Vikings were favored by 7 points at most sportsbooks.

Upon the release of that spread, the public jumped all over the Lions and that line has since decreased all the way down to the Vikings -3.

At the time of this post, Points Bet USA is reporting that the Vikings are currently their biggest liability this week and they have called the Lions +3 as their “top need” of the day as 86% of their bettors have placed wagers on the Vikings against the spread.

Nation, will the Lions make the sportsbooks happy by covering the point spread today?
