NFL Week 10 MNF Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Recent history hasn’t been on Minnesota’s side, as they have not only lost four straight games against the Bears, they are also 1-5 against the spread (ATS) in their last six games in Chicago.  The Vikings are 4-0 in their last four NFC North games, but they are just 2-12 ATS in their last 14 Monday games.

The under is 5-1 in Chicago’s last six games overall and they are 6-0 ATS in their last six games as underdogs between 0.5 to 3 points.  The Bears swept last year’s season series with a 16-6 Week 4 home win and a 21-19 Week 17 road victory.

Minnesota Vikings

It’s been a pretty simple game plan on offence for the Vikings, this season; hand the ball to running back Dalvin Cook and let him go.  After rushing for 206 yards and two TDs in Minnesota’s 34-20 win over the Lions last week, Cook upped his numbers to a league-leading 858 rushing yards and 12 rushing TDs (also league-leading) on the season.  Cook has now rushed for at least 130 yards in three of the Vikings’ last four games and Minnesota has won every game on the year that he hits at least 100 rushing yards.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins has also done his part for the offence.  He’s been precise with his throws, going 13-for-20 in Detroit with 220 yards, three TDs and no interceptions.  The pass defence was also solid last week, holding Lions QB Matthew Stafford to just 211 passing yards and picking him off twice, but they continue to give up one of the highest yard per game figures in the NFL at 287.9.

Chicago Bears

If Nick Foles can start stringing together multiple performances like he did last week, the Bears might knock on the door of the playoffs.  Despite a losing effort from Chicago, Foles threw for 335 yards and two TDs, but that still only brings his numbers on the season to 10 TDs and seven interceptions.  Foles was also sacked three times against the Titans and hit 10 times, with the Bears offensive line giving up 12 sacks in their last three games.

The defence has been better for Chicago.  The Bears held Titans star running back Derrick Henry to just 68 rushing yards and an average 3.2 yards per carry, while the pass defence held Ryan Tannehill to 158 yards on 10-for-21 passing.  Chicago is only giving up a respectable 218.2 yards per game, ranking eighth in the NFL.
