Minnesota Vikings vs Chicago Bears Odds
**Odds as of 11/26**
Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Bears are 2½-point home dogs when the Vikings visit Soldier Field on Monday night. Minnesota is riding a two-game winning streak, mainly on the legs of star RB Dalvin Cook. However, Cook faces a stingy Chicago run defense that has held him to 84 yards on 34 carries over their last three meetings. Vikings’ QB Kirk Cousins is 0-3 vs the Bears over that same stretch, averaging 209 passing yards per game. Minnesota’s defense is soft, and Chicago’s offense should have great success here. Bears’ QB Nick Foles will build on his 335 yard passing performance from a week ago against the Titans. Historically, the Vikings are 3-14 ATS over their last 17 games in Chicago. The Bears will come out aggressively to snap their three-game losing streak, covering the spread in the process. Bears 27, Vikings 24
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
Dalvin Cook has been sensational the last couple of weeks and the Minnesota Vikings have looked much better.
Cook leads the league in rushing yards (858) and rushing touchdowns (12). Over the passing game, Kirk Cousins has been throwing less to Adam Thielen and more to Justin Jefferson and Irv Smith and that’s a good thing for them.
The Vikings average 27.1 points per game and the total has gone over in four of Minnesota’s last five games against an opponent from the NFC.
The Chicago Bears haven’t scored more than 23 points in their last six games.
Nick Foles is a good quarterback, but not a great one. Luckily for him, the Bears’ defense remains as one of the best in the league.
The Bears average 19.8 points per game (fourth worst in the league) and the total has gone under in five of their last six games.
Last season, both Vikings-Bears games went under 45 points. Go under once again.
