Betting on the Minnesota Vikings (2-1)
After losing to the Green Bay Packers in Week 2, the Vikings got back up with a 34-14 drubbing of the Oakland Raiders at home last Sunday. Once again, the Vikings rode the brilliant performance of bell-cow running back Dalvin Cook, who rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries. Cook is cooking on the ground this season, and the Vikings are not going to decrease his load with the success they’re finding on their rushing attack. The Vikings are No. 1 in the league in rushing play percentage and second with 193.7 rushing yards per game. The Bears have a sturdy defense, but Cook is just too talented for the Vikings not to try giving lots of workload on Sunday. Through three games this season, Cook has 375 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 57 carries.
The under is 4-0 in the Vikings’ last four home games.
Betting on the Chicago Bears (2-1)
Mitchell Trubisky’s performance in the Bears’ 31-15 road win over the Washington Redskins last Monday was better, but Chicago fans are far from convinced. But at least, Trubisky showed up, passing for 231 yards and three touchdowns against an interception on 25 of 31 completions. Wide receiver Taylor Gabriel came out of nowhere and had himself a game, finishing with 75 receiving yards and three touchdowns on six receptions and seven targets. Running back David Montgomery, meanwhile, led the Bears with 67 rushing yards on 13 carries. Chicago’s defense features incredibly talented pass rushers, who can disrupt Minnesota’s passing attack, but the Bears are also capable of grounding the Vikings’ run game. In fact, the Bears are fifth in the NFL with just 68.7 rushing yards allowed per game.
The Bears are 7-3 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 home games.
The Vikings win, 24-23.
