Bears Vs. Vikings Predictions – NFL Week 17 Best Bets Against The Spread
Chicago Bears +4 (-110) vs Minnesota Vikings -4 (-110) Total: 40.5
The playoffs scenario for the Minnesota Vikings is simple; win and advance. A loss to the Chicago Bears and a win by the Philadelphia Eagles against Washington would eliminate them. The Bears are still fighting for the second seed in the NFC. A win over the Vikes and LA Rams loss to the San Francisco 49ers and they will get a bye week. Minnesota is a 4-point favorite at MyBookie.ag after it opened as a touchdown fave. 57% of the betting public is taking the Bears with the points. The game total is at 40.5 moving down from 41 points.
Both teams have a lot to play for in week 17, although only the Vikings depend on themselves. There is no indication Chicago will rest their starters on Sunday as they will go for their 12th win of the season. “If we were in a position where you can’t move at all seed-wise and you were just locked in, then I think that’s something [resting starters] that you have to discuss,” Bears head Matt Nagy said. “But we’re not in that position. So we have to play to win, and I kind of like that. I don’t mind that at all, and I think that our guys kind of like it. It just kind of keeps you going if you were fortunate enough to make it to the playoffs. It keeps you going in that rhythm.”
So the Bears are going for it, and that’s great. Their defensive front has a tasty matchup against the Vikings’ weak offensive line, and this might be the key to the game. There’s no mystery in Minnesota’s O-line; they usually get overpowered by great defensive lines and Chicago might have the best in the NFL. The Vikings will put most of their postseason hopes in the hands of QB Kirk Cousins. That’s why they invested $84M guaranteed on him in the offseason. It does help they changed the offensive coordinator two weeks ago, and the offense has scored 68 points combined in the last two games. But this is by far their biggest challenge of the season. If Minnesota wins this game, it would be by no more than a field goal. That gives the points a lot of value. What’s the play? Bears +4.
