Minnesota Vikings vs Chicago Bears
Monday Night Expert Bet Prediction

When: 8:30 PM ET, Monday, October 9, 2017
Where: Soldier Field, Chicago, Illinois
Betting Line: Bears +3.5
Total: 40

The Chicago Bears second overall draft pick quarterback Mitchell Trubisky will make his NFL debut while Case Keenum will likely start at quarterback for the injured Sam Bradford.┬áTrubisky will go against an aggressive Vikings’ defense that sacked Matthew Stafford six times in a 14-7 loss to Detroit on Sunday. The Vikings not only have an injured QB but they lost rookie running back Dalvin Cooke to an ACL injury. The Vikings have a ready replacement for Cook in Latavius Murray. But, even Murray is not 100 percent following offseason surgery. If the Bears are going to have a chance they will need a big game from Jordan Howard. Howard did well against the Minnesota defense last season. He had 202 yards from scrimmage in a 20-10 win in the first game against the Vikings and had 135 yards rushing in the second game.

Bears vs Vikings Betting Prediction 10-09-17

Where will the offense come from? Case Keenum is a bit of a gunslinger and if the Viking offense stalls he will have no problem trying to win the game with his arm. On the other side I do believe the Bears will be able to run even against a defense stacked against them. It might take a defensive touchdown to do it but I like the over. It could get ugly and there will be field goals early. In the end I like both teams to hit the 20 point mark.
