Bears vs. Vikings Free Pick
The Bears will offer bettors value as a road underdog today in Minnesota when they visit the Vikings at 1:00PM ET.
Even if Minnesota gets nose tackle Linval Joseph (foot/questionable) back this week, its defense will still be without linebacker Anthony Barr (groin) and free safety Harrison Smith (knee). The Vikings' front seven has been beaten routinely by opposing rushers in recent weeks, which isn't a positive sign for today's matchup versus Matt Forte and Jeremy Langford.
The Bears have been an excellent play as a road underdog this season, covering in five of their six road games and winning by an average margin of 0.5 in those contests.
Conversely, the Vikings are 4-1 against the spread in their five games this season as a home favorite but the key is that they won by an average margin of 3.8 points in those games. With the spread for today's game sitting at 5.5 points according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the value is in the road dog.
