Minnesota at 6-2, and Oakland at 4-4, have been two of the biggest surprises in the NFL this season. They'll look to continue their ascent when they meet in California on Sunday.

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -2.5 -105 at Pinnacle
This NFL odds opened up at -2.5 for the Raiders at home before moving to -3, which is where it has stayed. The Vikings have now won four in a row after an overtime win over Minnesota, but it came at a cost as Teddy Bridgewater might not be able to go on Sunday. The Raiders lost by three at Pittsburgh to drop to 4-4, and that is still a good loss for Oakland, who many thought was even a year or two away from this point. The Vikings are sixth in the league against the pass, while the Raiders are eighth through the air, so that will be something to watch. Also, the Vikings are sixth in rushing yards, while the Raiders are eighth when it comes to stopping the run; something has to give this weekend between these two.

Injuries
QB Bridgewater was concussed on a controversial play, but he was limited in practice on Wednesday, so that is a good start for the Vikings. Coach Mike Zimmer is confident that Bridgewater will play and he made plenty of statements on what he thought about the hit that knocked him out of the St. Louis game, but Bridgewater still hasn't passed the NFL tests. Elsewhere, LB Audie Cole is out for the season with an ankle injury.

RB Latavius Murray didn't practice on Wednesday with his own concussion issues, but other than that, the Raiders are quite healthy.

 

Trends
The Vikings have covered in their last five games in a row, and they're 5-1 ATS in their last six on the road. The Raiders are 5-2 ATS in their last seven, and they have the same record in their last seven at home. The total is set at 43, and the Vikings have gone under in six of their last nine. The Raiders have gone over in nine of their last 11.

The Raiders are 7-3 SU and 5-4 ATS in their last 10 meetings with the Vikings, who are 1-1 SU and ATS in two trips to Oakland, the last of which came way back in November 2003.
