The Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Bears are currently 1-point home underdogs after opening as a 2.5-point home underdog. The total, meanwhile, is currently sitting at 42.5 points after opening at 42.

The Records

Minnesota is 4-2 on the year and a profitable 5-1 against the spread, while Chicago is 2-4 straight up and 3-3 at the betting window. The Vikings won and covered as a road underdog last Sunday in Detroit, while the Bears are coming off their bye.

The Pick

We talked about the "due theory" last week when we predicted that the Chiefs would cover against the Steelers. Looking for your "due theory" play of Week 8? Fade the Vikings, who have covered five straight games dating back to Week 2 of the season. The last time they didn't cover the spread was Week 1 versus the 49ers in that 20-3 loss as a 2.5-point road favorite. These two teams are familiar with each other, the Bears are well rested and should be prepared coming of their bye, and Chicago has dominated this series at the betting window. Minnesota is just 1-6 against the spread in its last seven games in Chicago and 3-8 ATS in its last 11 games overall versus the Bears.
