Week 8 NFL odds: Buccaneers vs. Vikings

The Tampa Buccaneers are six-point underdogs versus the Vikings on Thursday.

Mike Ehrmann

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will travel to Minnesota as six-point underdogs as they take on the Vikings on Thursday night.

The Buccaneers are coming off a 35-28 loss to the New Orleans Saints last Sunday to fall to 2-4 on the season, four games behind the 6-0 Atlanta Falcons in the NFC South division.

The Vikings defeated Arizona last Sunday, 21-14, to improve to 5-2 on the season, one loss behind the 5-1 Chicago Bears who lead the NFC North division.

Tampa Bay has yet to win a game on the road this season as they fell to the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys in Weeks 2 and 3 while the Vikings are a perfect 4-0 at home to open the year.

The Buccaneers boast the third best run defense in the league as they are only allowing 76.0 yards a game while the Vikings' rushing attack ranks seventh by averaging 132.3 yards per game.
