Grinding Out The Profits
From this week’s PLAYBOOK Football Newsletter: When Detroit hosts Minnesota in this NFC North finale on Sunday it’s hard to imagine which of these two wounded souls is more depressed than the other. We do know the Vikings are 3-10 SU and 0-13 ATS as road favorites when coming off a SUATS loss and facing a foe coming off a loss. The listless Lions have been outgained in 11 of their fifteen games this year and allowed Tampa Bay a season-high 588 yards in last week’s 40-point whipping. It does set the table though, as home teams coming off a 40-point or worse setback are 17-8-2 ATS since 2000, including 6-0-1 ATS when seeking division revenge (Detroit lost by 14 points at Minnesota in November). Grab the clothespin and the points.
