Monday Night Football Betting: Vikings vs BearsPublished October 31, 2016 by Sol FH
Week 8 NFL action concludes tonight with a huge MNF game between the Vikings and the Bears at 00:30 GMT.
One of the classic rivalries in the National Football League is definitely between the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears. This season, these teams are on opposite ends of the table with the league leading Vikings at 5-1, while the Bears are in last place with a dismal record of 1-6. The Vikings are vast favorites to win tonight's game and with news of the Bears hiring outside consultation help, things could be getting much colder in Chicago.
Tonight will be the 110th time that these teams meet, with the Vikings leading the all time wins category at 57-50-2. Last year's meeting at Soldier field was won by Minnesota 23-20, but the Bears have won seven of the last eight against the Vikings when playing on home turf.
This game will be the seventh loss by the Bears this season and it is a same to lose in front of the home town fans, but that is what will happen tonight. The Vikings should easily control the speed of this game and they have enough weapons both through the air and on the ground to make the day difficult for the Bears. Expect a score around 34-17 when all is said and done.
