Bet on the NFL Both the Bears and the Vikings are aiming to keep up their winning streaks this weekend. The Bears took home the W in Week 9 with a road win over the Bills 22-19, and the Vikings took down the Chargers at home 27-24.
It will be a battle of the NFC North this weekend as the Minnesota Vikings will travel to Soldier Field to take on their the Chicago Bears on November 14th. The most dysfunctional team in the NFL, the Minnesota Vikings, will need to pull themselves together to salvage any chance of post-season hopes. They have been quite the let down this season which is a stark contradiction compared to the Chicago Bears who have more than impressed and surprised.
It's looking strong that the Vikings defense will be able to take down Jay Cutler after a handful of sacks. The defensive line of the Minnesota Vikings has been struggling to get to the quarterback this season and coming up against the worst offensive line in the NFL may be just what the doctor ordered. Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears offense starts and ends with their difficulties on the front offensive line. Cutler will need to focus on quick dump off passes to his running back Matt Forte and tight end Greg Olsen. This will be a game where Cutler will not be able to catch his breath and mistakes will ensue.
When betting on sports take note: the Minnesota Vikings defense will have the edge over the Chicago Bears defense.
What's shocking and impressive is that the Chicago Bears defense has ranked at the top of the NFL all season and heading into this game. With the disappointing performance we've seen by Favre and his Vikings, we are going to see the Bears hit hard, take this opportunity and run with it. The middle of the field is where the Chicago Bears have created the most chaos with Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs but Julius Peppers on the front line has been a huge help. Favre needs to get the ball into the hands of Adrian Peterson out of the back field and in the flat to keep the Chicago Bears defense honest in this game. Neither the Chicago Bears defense nor the Minnesota Vikings offense has an edge in this match up.The Sportsbook lists the Vikings are the minus 2 point road favorites this weekend.
