Chicago vs Minnesota: Bears Battle Vikings For NFC North Cellar
Bears own the Vikings at Soldier Field recently
While it's rare for us to back a team that's been putting up sad-sack efforts like Chicago has recently, we are sensing some Bear pride will show up to protect Soldier Field on Sunday. Beleaguered QB Jay Cutler needs to lead the pride parade but, perhaps more importantly, the Bears defense needs to show up here. The Bears (3-6) have dropped three straight contests by a 133-50 final score and occupy the cellar in the NFC North.
Minnesota aims for second three game winning streak in five years
After they were shredded by Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers the last two weeks, the Bears D gets a bit of a break as they face a Vikings offense that ranks 26th in points scored and 28th in yards gained. Minnesota's two straight wins vs the Buccaneers (16-13 OT) and Redskins (29-26) both required some late game heroics. The Vikings defense is their strong suit as they rank 4th in passing yards allowed and 16th versus the run. Vikings vs Bears Summary & Prediction: Though Da Bears have been bad news during recent weeks, they have won six straight at Soldier Field versus the Vikings and their 21.6 PPG average should be enough to win this contest. We are going to cruise with Chicago, who we see as having the better offense, and a 300 unit wager on the money line posted on the big board at the SpoortsBetting.ag online sportsbook.
