Week 12 NFL Lines And Odds: Minnesota Vs. Atlanta

For more on the Vikings, visit SB Nation's Daily Norseman.

The Minnesota Vikings will face another team holding on to playoff hopes this week, making for another difficult matchup they need to overcome. The Atlanta Falcons are chasing New Orleans in the NFC South and they are in the midst of a battle for a wild card berth. As a result, they are an early 10.5 point favorite according to SB Nation's official odds partner Oddsshark:

The Vikes have won four of five trips to Georgia since 1991, but lost their last time in 2005. Atlanta meanwhile continues to be a solid UNDER bet at home (7-2 past 9 at Georgia Dome).The Vikings have struggled as an underdog, going 2-14 SU their past 16 times in that situation.

Minnesota also has to deal with the questionable status of Adrian Peterson, who sprained an ankle last week and may miss Sunday's game. Atlanta is coming in off of a 23-17 win over Tennessee.
