Vikings vs Lions Prop Bets

All Vikings vs Lions prop bets and odds are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

- Away Team Total Points: Over 24 (-108) The Vikings' last two road games haven't been pretty offensively, but you have to like their chances of finding their groove against the Lions. Detroit is surrendering 23.8 points per game this year and Minnesota put up exactly 24 on them earlier this season. If they can repeat the offensive success they had against the Dolphins last week, there's a good chance the Vikings hit the away team points over on Sunday. 

- First Quarter Winner: Minnesota (-152) – The Vikings' offense has been wildly inconsistent this year, but if there's one thing they're good at, it's scoring early in the game. Minnesota is averaging 5.2 points in the first quarter this year, good for fourth best in the league. Considering the Lions are averaging 4.2 points per first quarter, you have to like the Vikes' chances of owning the lead heading into the second frame.
