The Minnesota Vikings are 5-0 straight up and 3-2 against the spread in their last five home games against the Chicago Bears. With another win over the Bears this Sunday, the Vikings would punch their ticket into the 2018 NFL postseason.
Minnesota is a 5-point home favorite on the NFL odds in Minneapolis at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. In the last meeting between these two teams in Chicago, Minnesota lost 25-20.
The Vikings seemed to be falling out of the playoff conversation with a 2-4 SU and ATS run during the second half of the season, but a 2-0 SU and ATS record with back-to-back wins over Miami and Detroit has left Minnesota in control of its own destiny heading into this game.
Minnesota’s 3-0 SU and ATS record over its last three home games has helped to offset a 1-3 SU and ATS record in the team’s last four road games. Should the Vikings make the playoffs as a wild card team, they’ll need to get better on the road in a hurry.
No team has looked better down the stretch than the Bears, who are 8-1 SU and ATS over their last nine games to bring their record to 11-4 SU and ATS on the season. Chicago ranks fourth in the NFL in total defense allowing 308.7 yards per game and third in scoring defense allowing only 18.2 points per game.
Over the team’s current 3-0 SU and ATS run that includes a win over the Los Angeles Rams, the Bears have allowed just 272 yards and 10.7 points per game. Chicago is 4-1 ATS in its last five games against Minnesota.
Sunday’s total is set at 40.5 points at sports betting sites. The UNDER is 10-4 in the last 14 games between these two rivals.
If Minnesota defeats Chicago on Sunday, these two teams will likely meet again next week in the wild card round, this time in Chicago. While the Vikings certainly have more to play for with their playoff lives on the line, the Bears should still be trying in this one as they could jump to the No. 2 seed with a win and a Los Angeles Rams loss in Week 17.
The most impactful name on that list, of course, is Jackson. This is the guy who took center stage in the Bears’ first matchup with Minnesota, returning a late interception for a touchdown. He is arguably the best safety in all of football, and while he continues to nurse a sprained ankle, the Bears’ secondary will have to step up in a big way.
On the Vikings’ side, their secondary could be missing a big name as well. Pro Bowl cornerback Xavier Rhodes is listed as questionable with a groin injury. Rhodes has found his name amongst the top corners in the league for the last couple of seasons, and without him, the Vikings’ secondary will be hurting.
Aside from Rhodes, the Vikings will definitely be without linebacker Eric Kendricks, who has been nursing a hamstring injury. Cornerback Marcus Sherels has also been ruled out. Kendricks, one of the Vikings’ starting linebackers, leads the team in tackles this year with 108. Sherels, meanwhile, is one of the better return men in the league.
Back to the Bears. Without Robinson, it could end up being the Anthony Miller show. In their last matchup, Miller scored one of his seven touchdowns on the season. He has had a nose for the end zone when the Bears get into the red zone, and if Robinson indeed sits this one out, the stage will be set for Miller yet again.
This game doesn’t mean as much to the Bears as it does the Vikings, but you better believe head coach Matt Nagy still wants to win. Based on his comments this week, I have a feeling these Bears are on a mission to try and do their part in knocking their division rival out of the playoffs.
When the Minnesota Vikings schedule was released back in April, the Week 17 matchup against the Chicago Bears appeared to be an afterthought.In a schedule which featured trips to Philadelphia, Los Angeles and a home game against New Orleans, the final matchup of the season appeared to be a speed bump in the road for a Vikings team primed for a Super Bowl run.
Just like many things revolving around the Vikings, however, things didn’t go exactly as many had planned.
Minnesota got off to a rocky start this season, they cut the rookie kicker that they traded up for (and is now virtually automatic in Oakland), they had a defensive starter miss a month to work on his mental health, they surprisingly lost at home to Buffalo, and most recently they fired their white-hot coaching prospect that was hired to run the offense.
