When it comes to the public betting for this game, the public is soundly behind the Vikings on the road tonight. Of the wagers being placed, 84 percent are going on Minnesota as a 4-point favorite in Chicago.
The Bears haven’t been reliable against the spread this year, going just 1-6 ATS. Minnesota, on the other hand, has been great. The Vikings are 5-1 against the spread this season, with the line failed cover coming last week against the Eagles. The spread isn’t too big for a reason, though, as the Vikings have some injury issues on offense. Jerick McKinnon, the team’s leading rusher, is out with an ankle injury while Cordarrelle Patterson is questionable due to a concussion. He has been getting more use in the offense in recent weeks.
The Bears also have some injury issues as well with Brian Hoyer out with a broken arm, forcing Jay Cutler back into the starting role despite a lingering thumb injury. Two top receivers in Cameron Meredith and Eddie Royal are also dealing with injuries that might keep them from playing. Despite being just 1-6 ATS this season, Chicago’s lone cover did come at home as an underdog.
