The Minnesota Vikings will return from their BYE week to take on the Las Vegas Raiders.

The team's final four games of the season will come against the likes of the Bengals, Vikings, and Lions twice, so beating the Raiders in what will be their easiest opponent remaining, will be absolutely pivotal for this Minnesota squad.

Vikings vs. Raiders key players to watch

Minnesota Vikings

Danielle Hunter: With Jordan Hicks sidelined, Danielle Hunter will become even more important to the success of this Vikings' defense. This unit has taken huge steps forward, but without Hicks, they may struggle. Hunter needs to step up in a big way.

Las Vegas Raiders

Davante Adams: The Raiders wide receiver is still the top offensive weapon for the Raiders by a longshot and he's back to see consistent targets with Aidan O'Connell at quarterback. He's their key to beating any team they play against.

Vikings vs. Raiders prediction and pick

With the total set at a low mark of 40.5, I'm going to take the OVER and root for points in this one. The Vikings defense is going to take a bit of a step back with Jordan Hicks on IR, while the Raiders defense has been nothing to write home about this season.

The Raiders' defense ranks 22nd in opponent yards per play and 27th in opponent EPA per Play, so I expect whoever at quarterback to have a solid outing. The team said they will announce a starter on Wednesday and I expect them to give Joshua Dobbs at least one more shot. If they do, this could be a great bounce back spot for him.

The UNDER has hit at a high rate for both team's lately, but it's time to go the opposite way and take the OVER.

Odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
