Bears-Vikings Monday Night Football Spread

The Bears-Vikings Monday Night Football spread probably would have been forseen as Minnesota favored at home by 9 points or more coming into this season.  Few people would have guest that the Bears were going to actually be the team favored by 9 points on the road against once mighty Minnesota. 

So it goes this crazy NFL season where the Bears, Tampa Bay Bucs, Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders have come up from oblivion.  The Bears and Chiefs, both of whom were deep in the basement last season, are all but ensured Playoffs spots.  Along with Detroit, Chicago was a big long shot to win the NFC North Division.  Both Green Bay and Minnesota was expected to compete for that crown.  Instead it is Chicago and Green Bay vying for the top spot in the NFC North.  Minnesota is out of Playoffs contention.  The Bears could clinch with a win over Minnesota should New England beat Green Bay Sunday night (that game was still in progress at the time this article went to publication). 

The Vikings will have home field advantage but will be playing outdoors at the Golden Gopher’s stadium.  The roof collapsed on the Metrodome last week and won’t be ready in time for Monday night’s game.  With snow forecast and temperatures that will feel like 14 degrees, the Bears will have a decisive advantage.  That’s good news for Chicago, who have lost 7 of their last 8 playing in Minnesota. 

Some more important trends for the Bears-Vikings Monday Night Football game appear below.

Minnesota has beaten Chicago the last three times playing at home, though, as already pointed out, that might not matter for this particular game.

The Bears are 6-2-1 Against The Spread in their last 9 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.  The Vikings are 0-6 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.

The Bears are 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games following a ATS loss and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games following a S.U. loss.  The Vikings are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a SU loss of more than 14 points.

The Bears are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.

The Bears are 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 games in December.  Minnesota is 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games in December.
