Week 7 NFL lines and odds, Cardinals vs. Vikings: Minnesota listed as solid favorite

The Minnesota Vikings are solid favorites heading into their Week 7 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Stephen Dunn

The Minnesota Vikings (4-2) host the Arizona Cardinals (4-2) are both surprises as they enter Week 7, and odds makers have the Vikings currently listed as a 6-point favorite to win. The line opened with a 4.5-point spread favoring Minnesota, but since then it has moved even further in favor of the Vikings, according to Odds Shark.

Both teams are coming of a loss in Week 6 -- the Vikings fell to the Washington Redskins, and the Cardinals couldn't beat the Buffalo Bills -- but the Cardinals are the ones stumbling in a more serious way. Quarterback John Skelton has failed to produce during his time as a replacement for injured quarterback Kevin Kolb, as the Arizona offense has only put up 19 total points over the past two weeks.

The over/under for the game is currently set at 40 points, because as Odds Shark experts point out, the point total has gone under in five of Arizona's last six games and in four of Minnesota's last five.
