CHICAGO: The Bears are coming off a 23-17, overtime loss to the Seahawks last Sunday. Chicago has now dropped three of its last four games, being held to 17 points or less in those three losses. The one game that Chicago did win in this recent string was a 28-10 win at home over the Vikings. Neither team had a great offensive output, as both were held under 300 total yards. The key to the victory for Chicago was it forced three turnovers. Coming into this game, the Bears are dealing with some injuries to the defense, including LB Brian Urlacher, who is out this week with a hamstring injury. Jay Cutler will need to build off his performance last week, when he threw for 233 yards with two touchdowns, if the Bears hope to win this week.

MINNESOTA: The Vikings suffered a 23-14 loss at Green Bay last week. The Vikings have now lost four of their last five games. Christian Ponder has been struggling as of late. Last week he was just 12 of 25 passing for 119 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. Despite Ponder’s struggles, the Vikings are still a viable team thanks to the legs of Adrian Peterson, who has rushed for 1,446 yards on the season, including 210 yards against the Packers. Peterson could potentially rush for 2,000 yards this season is he is able to stay healthy. Peterson had 108 yards on 18 carries in the loss at Chicago a few weeks back.

ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Bears are 2.5-point favorites versus the Vikings, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 39 points. Chicago is 8-4 on the year, 3-2 on the road and 6-6 against the spread. Minnesota is 6-6 overall, 5-1 at home and 4-7-1 against the spread.

TRENDS: Matchup trends show that the Bears have covered the spread in their last six against the Vikings and the favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 in this series. The home team has covered in 7 of the last 9 playing in this series as well. Chicago is just 1-4 ATS in its last 5 conference games while Minnesota is only 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games against NFC North opponents.
