Buccaneers vs Vikings NFL Week Eight Online Odds

Minnesota Vikings: Trying to push to top of division

As week eight begins, the Vikings play host to the Bucs in a critical game for Minnesota. Christian Ponder can make a major statement if he leads his team to a win on Thursday night that he can be a franchise quarterback. Adrian Peterson will be challenged by the tough Tampa Bay run defense, which is the third best in the league in 2012. A win catapults the Vikings ahead of the Bears in the division.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Must win game for NFC South team

Playing in a division with the Atlanta Falcons is never easy, and it gets much more difficult when the Falcons start the season 6-0. Tampa Bay sits at 2-4, four games out of first, heading into the matchup with the Vikings on Thursday night. The Bucs boast one of the best run defenses in the league this year, which could pose a problem for the Vikings. A win over Minnesota could put the league on notice.

As the season hits the midway point, the Vikings are in a position to secure a playoff spot for the 2012 post-season. Tampa Bay is not out of the running yet but needs a win tonight to stay in the race. The online sportsbook at Sportsinteraction.com has the Vikings as -5.5 (-110) favorites to knock off the visiting Buccaneers. We will take the Purple People Eaters with the spread to defeat the Bucs on Thursday night.
