A couple of division rivals heading in different directions meet on MNF, with the Vikings getting bet up to 3.5-point road favorites, and the total sitting at 43.5. Here’s what jumps out on DraftKings Sportsbook.
I’m still not completely sure I’ll wind up taking a side in this game, but if I do it’s a strong lean to Minnesota. I’d also like to get it at -3, and the number has been moving since this morning, so it may wind up too late to lock. But I’ll make the case for the Vikings and if you feel comfortable laying more than a field goal, I don’t hate the play.
These teams are clearly heading in opposite directions, turning into more of the teams the market had them priced at prior to the season. The once 5-1 Bears have lost three in a row and will be without David Montgomery (concussion) and potentially Allen Robinson (knee). Not that Montgomery’s having all that good of a season, but the backfield behind him is extremely thin. That means a lot of relying on Nick Foles. If Robinson winds up being ruled out, it really limits the ways Chicago can move the ball, even against Minnesota.
Meanwhile, the Vikings are rolling behind Dalvin Cook and the run game. Toss
