Minnesota Vikings Vs Chicago Bears MNF Pick

Minnesota Vikings Vs Chicago Bears MNF Pick

This week’s Monday Night Football betting pick may surprise you. The line favors the Vikings at -4, but I believe the line is soft and there a few reasons why. Keep reading to get the full analysis along with my pick…

Minnesota Vikings Vs Chicago Bears MNF Pick

  • What: Minnesota Vikings vs Chicago Bears
  • When: Monday, October 31, 2016
  • Start Time: 8:30 PM ET
  • Where: Chicago, IL
  • Stadium: Soldier Field
  • Spread: Vikings -4
  • Moneyline: Vikings -210 vs Bears +175
  • Game Total: 40.5
  • Watch: ESPN

The line opened at between -6 and -5 favoring the Vikings at most online sportsbooks. However, after heavy public betting the line has gone down to -4, there’s still some value in taking the underdog bet specially if you can get in at +5, here’s why…

Bet on the Vikings (-5) Because…

The Vikings aren’t undefeated anymore after losing to the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday, 21-10. Sam Bradford was tripping over himself, losing the ball twice, throwing an interception and only amounting to 224 passing yards and one touchdown. The Eagles’ defense managed to cut through Minnesota’s offensive line and pestered Bradford all game long which is partly the reason why of Bradford’s erratic performance.

It’s also why I have reservations on betting the Vikings in this game. The Bears have 15 sacks so far this year so if they can manage to disrupt Minnesota’s O line, you’ll get a repeat in Bradford’s performance. 

Minnesota is 10-1 ATS in its last 11 games; Minnesota is 5-1 SU in its last 6 games.

Bet on the Bears (+5) Because…

Granted, Chicago also lost their game against the Packers last Thursday, 26-10. And, they also lost Brian Hoyer who left the game with a broken arm. This leaves third-stringer Matt Barkley leading the offense, which clearly isn’t good news.

However, the Bears’ defense can keep them in the game; at the minimum, they’ll keep things close. In fact, they’ll keep things close enough so that Barkley, despite his limitations, can lead the offense to score points even if Chicago ends up losing.

Chicago is 6-2 ATS in its last 8 games when playing at home against Minnesota; Chicago is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games when playing Minnesota.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

The public betting is siding heavily on the Vikings’ side and perhaps it’s with good reason. Without a starting quarterback, the Bears may not be able to get the offense going and even if they’re playing at home they haven’t been able to capitalize on this advantage.

Nevertheless, I believe the Bears’ defense can stay in the game if they manage to cajole Bradford into committing mistakes. As long as they manage to hold on to a solid defense, they’ll have a shot at covering.

My final score prediction is Vikings 24, Bears 21
