No Locks today.
Bears +3.5 (-110): This feels like an overreaction in the market because of strong performances by the Vikings in recent weeks. Those wins were powered by the running of Dalvin Cook, but came against a terrible Detroit Lions defense and a Green Bay Packers team that just snuck by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Bears defense has held Derrick Henry to 68 yards and Alvin Kamara to 67, which bodes well against a Minnesota team with little else to rely on. Chicago wants to force Kirk Cousins, who is 0-9 on Monday nights, to go win the game. The Vikings are terrible at Soldier Field historically, so getting 3.5 points here seems like a bargain. The Bears really feel like a live dog in this one. Factor in the outdoors, this one could be fun for Chicago.
