NFL odds and lines, Week 6: Panthers vs. Vikings 2013

Scott Cunningham

The Vikings are viewed as the favorite at home against the Panthers in Week 6.

The Vikings will host the Panthers in Week 6 on Sunday. The pair of 1-3 teams are hoping to get back to winning following a mediocre start to their season. While both teams have similar records, the hometown Vikings are listed as 1-point favorites in this NFC battle, according to OddsShark.

The Panthers are coming off a rough loss to the Cardinals. Carolina was held to just six points on the road and failed to get into the end zone after a Week 4 bye. Cam Newton and the Panthers offense were shut down in the second half of the game and the Cardinals finished the game with 19 unanswered points.

The Vikings were on a bye in Week 5 following their first win of the season in London. Minnesota is going to need a big showing from Adrian Peterson on Sunday to beat the Panthers. Either Matt Cassel or Christian Ponder will start in Week 6 but their status for Sunday remains uncertain.

The Vikings will host the Panthers on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on Fox.
