1 unit on Minnesota -4.5 (-105) (risk 1 to return 1.95)  RESULT: WIN

Rebuilding Oakland looked great in the opener, but that was at home against St. Louis, a team that was a long way from home and showed nothing. Backup quarterbacks Christian Ponder and Matt McGloin have struggled in the first two weeks of camp. New Raiders coach Jack Del Rio has a lot of holes to fill on this team and this is their first road game. Meanwhile Minnesota is a deep, talented up-and-coming young team for Mike Zimmer. The Vikings are already 2-0 SU/ATS with a solid defense, winning 14-3 and 26-16. Minnesota has a fine QB rotation with Teddy Bridgewater, Shaun Hill and Mike Kafka, and this is their final preseason game at TCF Bank Stadium. The Vikings defeated the Raiders 10-6, on August 8, 2014, here in preseason and Minnesota is 146-96-3 (.603) in their 245 preseason games all-time. Most important, Zimmer is a very good coach who gets these guys to play, even in preseason where his record is 6-0 SU/ATS. Take the Minnesota Vikings.
