How To Bet On Vikings Bears – Bears Need To Arrest Slide Against Vikings
The Chicago Bears had been 7-1 and on top of the NFC alongside the Atlanta Falcons. Now, their position of leverage has been eroded. They need to get back on the beam this weekend.
Minnesota Vikings @ Chicago Bears – Sunday, November 26
Betting line: No line
Why Minnesota Will Win
The online sports betting legal world is going to be very straightforward when looking at this contest. Betting experts are going to point to the past five quarters as a resounding example of what happens to the Chicago Bears when Jay Cutler is not their starting quarterback.
Yes, it's true that Cutler's status has not yet been announced for this game. Cutler missed this past Monday's game against the San Francisco 49ers because he did not pass the concussion tests that were administered to him by the Bears' medical team. Cutler could play against Minnesota, but that's far from a guarantee at this point. Naturally, Cutler's uncertain playing status is why no betting line has yet been given for this contest.
At any rate, though, let's say that Cutler does play. Can Chicago count on him, given his current level of health? If a quarterback suffers an injury traumatic enough to knock him out of part of one game and then a whole game the next week (and on a Monday, with an extra day of rest), he must not be in very good condition. Since backup quarterback Jason Campbell has clearly not been able to do anything with the Bears' offense, leading Chicago to a grand total of just seven points in five quarters, it's clear that if Campbell is asked to be the Bears' quarterback in this game, Minnesota should gain the pronounced upper hand. No one would deny or question that kind of logic.
Why Chicago Will Win
The football betting experts who are dissecting this game are aware of the fact that the Bears have lost their last two games, but when talking about Jay Cutler, it's worth realizing that the franchise quarterback's status was up in the air until shortly before the Monday night game in San Francisco against the 49ers. Given another full week of rest, Cutler should probably be clearheaded enough to return to the gridiron. If indeed that's the case, the Bears should be able to get back to normal… not to their best level of football, mind you, but a level of performance that should be good enough to eclipse Minnesota, a team that has not played all that well over the past month.
The Vikings had been surging at 5-2 on the season, but they got knocked back a peg in losses to Tampa Bay and Seattle, two NFC playoff competitors. Minnesota won at home against Detroit, but Chicago is not Detroit, and this game is not being played in Minneapolis. Chicago will accumulate enough advantages to win.
Who Will Win
It’s hard to say which way this game will go at this point, but the sense here is that Cutler will play and not get injured. As long as that's the case, the Bears have the upper hand.
