Week 2 NFL action is underway, but FanDuel Sportsbook has already released NFL odds and lines for Week 3, giving us an early preview of next week's slate.

Week 3's 1 p.m. slate sets up an NFC North clash between the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings.

Lions vs Vikings Odds & Lines Week 3

All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are from FanDuel Sportsbook.
Moneyline: DET: (+290) | MIN: (-360)
Spread: DET: +7.5 (-115) | MIN: -7.5 (-105)
Total: N/A — Over: (N/A) | Under: (N/A)

After a dominant Week 1 performance, the Vikings are heavy -360 moneyline favorites. That's also seen in the point spread as Minnesota takes 7.5 points heading into this divisional showdown.

Lions vs Vikings Prediction Week 3

Early NFL predictions and picks are from ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI).
Lions: 28.4% to win
Vikings: 71.2% to win

It's hard not to like the Vikings' offense with Justin Jefferson leading the way. Minnesota's MNF contest will be telling, especially against a Philadelphia Eagles team that barely scraped by Detroit in Week 1. I expect the Lions to keep this close, even on the road. Bet Detroit +7.5 (-115).
