Oakland Raiders vs Minnesota Vikings Odds


Oakland comes off a terrific road win in San Diego while Minnesota comes off a brutal road loss at Green Bay as the Raiders and Vikings clash on the Week 11 NFL odds menu.

The Raiders have dominated lately away from home, going 5-0 ATS in five recent road matches. The Vikes get a short week after losing on Monday to the Packers.

The Vikings are just 2-14 SU as an underdog, so if the line dips to +1 for minny (it opened at EVEN), that dog angle comes into play. The Raiders are just 2-13-1 ATS in their past 16 games as a favorite, not exactly a ringing endorsement for betting to back them as chalk.
