Week 5 NFL action is underway, but FanDuel Sportsbook has already released NFL odds and lines for Week 6, giving us an early preview of next week's slate.

Week 6's 1 p.m. slate sets up an exciting cross-conference matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and Miami Dolphins.

Vikings vs Dolphins Odds & Lines Week 6

All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are from FanDuel Sportsbook.
Moneyline: MIN: (+108) | MIA: (-126)
Spread: MIN: +1 (-105) | MIA: -1 (-115)
Total: N/A — Over: (N/A) | Under: (N/A)

The Dolphins return home as a slight favorite against the Vikings in Week 6. Miami is an early -126 moneyline favorite and is favored by 1 point on the spread.

Vikings vs Dolphins Prediction Week 6

Early NFL predictions and picks are from ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI).
Vikings: 34.2% to win
Dolphins: 65.4% to win

This one could come down to the wire, according to the opening betting lines. ESPN's FPI sides with the Dolphins, but I find myself siding with the road team here. Yes, the wide receiver duo of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle should scare any defense. However, so should the wide receiver duo of Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen. The real advantage the Vikings have is at quarterback. Kirk Cousins' experience greatly outweighs that of Teddy Bridgewater and that's what will make the difference in Week 6. Back the Vikings on the moneyline (+108).
