The Detroit Lions have been tearing up the NFL after two weeks in the 2011 regular season, now they continue to make history, doing something they haven’t done this century. For the first time since 2000, the Lions are better than a 3 point road favorite. According to various wagering site, the Lions are between a 3 1/2 to 4 point road favorite this coming Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Do I like this wager? I love it.
The old saying is that statistics are for losers, but that’s probably uttered 86.7 percent of the time (or something like that) by the loser of the stats battle. As it relates to the Minnesota Vikings, they had better hope they and the Detroit Lions don’t play to the rankings they’ve earned after two games when they meet Sunday at Mall of America Field.
If the game were played on paper, the Vikings would be shredded to pieces.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
