Bet the Bears vs. Vikings Week 17 Game

  • Vikings opened at -6 at recreational books and the line has dropped to -4

  • 85% of the spread action was on the Bears

  • Home team is 5-1 in last six games of this series

  • Bears do not anticipate resting key players after clinching Playoff sport


Isn't this the best way to end the regular season?! The Vikings, qualifying for Wild Card Round can't quite slack off with the Eagles awaiting a slip from the Vikings to take their place on the Wild Card. But the Bears, this season's revelation, still want to add to their record and why not, prepare for the Wild Card Round which curiously enough, has the same teams slated to face off.

The Vikings are a -4.5 favorite coming into this one.  This one opened at -4, climbed all the way up to -6 and has dropped back down to -4.  Most of the recreational sites opened at -6 so the overall trend here has been a two point fall in the line.

85% of the spread action was on the dog here, and the books are doing everything in their power to get more wagering on the Vikings.

The home team is 5-1 in this series.  Minnesota has won seven of the last ten games.

Everything is on the line here as Minnesota can clinch a wild card with a victory - or a tie.  They can still sneak in should the Eagles lose to the Redskins.

So the big question is: Does Chicago have anything to play for being that they have already stamped their ticket to the Playoffs after winning winning the NFC North?

For their part, the Bears say they are NOT resting key players.  They still have something to play for in the form of a first round bye.  That happens if the 49ers beat the Rams.
