Minnesota Vikings Betting Trends
The Vikings are just 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games played on Monday night. They're also 1-5 against the spread in their last six divisional games, are 1-6 against the number in their last seven road games, and are 1-5 against the spread in their last six games played on grass. That said, they're 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games played in October and the Vikings have cashed in 40 of their last 59 games overall.
Chicago Bears Betting Trends
The Bears have cashed in six of their last seven home games, are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games following an ATS loss, and are 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven games played on Monday night. That said, they're 1-4 against the spread in their last five games versus conference opponents.
OUR PREDICTION: The under is 4-1 at the betting window in the last five meetings between these two teams in Chicago. It is also 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams and is 9-4 in the Bears' last 13 games coming off a loss. On the other side, the under is 4-1 in the Vikings' last five games played on Monday. With Mitchell Trubisky making his debut for the Bears tonight, this is probably going to be an ugly, low-scoring game throughout.
