Odds and lines for the Week 5 showdown between the Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings.

The Minnesota Vikings have taken two straight tough matchups, with wins over the San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions. They were underdogs in both of those games. On Sunday against the Tenessee Titans, the Vikings will be the favorites. The opening lines saw the 3-1 Vikings open as 5.5 point favorites, while some sites, like Bovada, have them listed as 6 point favorites.

That's a line of -250 for the Vikings, while the Titans had opening action at +222, and have evened out around +200 on most of the big sites, according to OddsShark.com. The over/under for the matchup is either 45 or 44 depending on where you go, and given the Titans' propensity for scoring a lot -- while allowing plenty of scoring as well -- it's relatively low in comparison to other lines around the league.

It's going to be interesting, given that the total has gone over in five of Tennessee's last six games, though it's gone under in four of Minnesota's last five games. Chris Johnson has finally been playing well for the Titans, so if the Vikings can bottle him up, the under might be the smart bet this time around.
