NFL Odds: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Bears are 6.5-point favorites versus the Vikings, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 39.5 points.

Line Movement: The line for this game was slow to come out because of the injury situation involving Jay Cutler (concussion). But over the weekend oddsmakers started to release the line at Bears -6.5 because reports stated that Cutler had been cleared to play. The total opened right around 39 and 39.5.

Public Betting: Of the wagers currently placed on this game, 64% of NFL public bettors currently favor the Bears. This information is subject to change leading up to kickoff, however, so make sure you click on the link provided for the most up-to-date NFL public betting numbers.

NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Chicago. According to latest NFL trends, the Vikings are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games versus the Bears and 0-4 ATS in their last four trips to Chicago. The home team is also 6-2 against the spread in the last eight meetings between these two teams, while the favorite is 6-2 against the number in the last eight meetings between these two teams. The Vikings will once again be without Percy Harvin and while they played very well two weeks ago versus Detroit, Chicago’s defense is angry following its brutal effort in San Francisco on Monday night and will look to shut down Adrian Peterson. Once that happens, the Bears will force Christian Ponder to beat them with his air, and that favors Chicago. Look for the Bears to bounce back after being embarrassed on national television just six days ago.
