MINNEAPOLIS, MN (The Spread) – Both coming off a loss, who will cover in a key NFC North matchup when the Vikings host the Bears at 1PM ET on FOX?

NFL 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.

Line Movement: Opening odds had the Bears favored by 3 points. The spread never got higher than that and simply fell back to Chicago -2.5 during the week. The over/under total opened at 39.5 points. The total didn’t move much either, simply dropping the hook to close at 39 points.

Public Betting: Of the wagers currently placed on this game, 63% of NFL public bettors currently favor the Bears with odds of -2.5 points at Minnesota. 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 Minnesota. According to latest NFL trends, the Bears have covered in 6 straight meetings with the Vikings, but the home team is 7-2 ATS in the last 9 in this series. The Bears may be the better team, but they have had a lot of issues protecting the quarterback as of late and the Vikings have a pair of solid rushers on the ends. Defensively, the Bears are without some key pieces, including captain Brian Urlacher. That should open up some option in the run game for Adrian Peterson, who has a shot to rush for 2,000 yards this season if he continues to play as well as he has been. The Vikings are 5-1 at home this year straight up, so I like their chances getting points against a Bears team that has lost three of its last four overall.
