The home team in the Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears series has won 8 of 10. The only two home losses were won by the away team by 3 points both times (one of those road victories was courtesy of Chicago). Because the line is Chicago -3 most everywhere, we really like them to win here. Three of Chicago's home wins against Minnesota were victories in the double digits. Against The Spread, Chicago has the 6-4 edge over the last ten games in this series.

The Vikings are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games on grass and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. They are 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. win. The Bears are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss.

A positive for Minnesota is that last year, Adrian Peterson had two second-half touchdowns as the Vikings won their fifth consecutive game, beating the Bears, 20-13, in Week 15 last year. The Vikings have won two consecutive games against the Bears and lead the all-time series, 50-41-2. Then there is the fact that Vikings quarterback Gus Frerotte has won three of his last four games against the Bears.

Last year, it was the Vikings riding a rookie running back to victory over their NFC North rivals. The Bears look to turn the tables on Minnesota this year with Matt Forte, who leads all rookie running backs with 459 rushing yards.

83 percent of the betting action was going Chicago's way in this game.

Gambling911.com's pick on this game is Chicago -3.
