Week 10 of the NFL season concludes with a huge NFC North rivalry game on Monday Night Football. The Chicago Bears will host the Minnesota Vikings for the first of two matchups this season, and these games are always intense battles.
Minnesota comes into this game with a record of just 3-5, but they are trending in the right direction. Chicago is 5-4 on the season, but the Bears have now lost three straight games.
The Vikings are hoping to win their third straight game to get back in the playoff race in the NFC. Chicago desperately needs to snap this losing skid and get back in the win column.
The visiting Minnesota Vikings are 2.5-point favorites over the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football, but that’s not what we are focused on betting. Instead, we are looking at three great prop bets to make on Monday Night Football, including an NFL player prop.
Allen Robinson To Score Touchdown (+115)
The Chicago Bears have struggled to find the end zone this season, and they have had to settle for plenty of field goal attempts from kicker Cairo Santos. Santos has been solid for the team, but Chicago will have to find a way to score a touchdown on Monday night.
Out of the 18 offensive touchdowns, the Bears have scored this season, all but two of them have been through the air. Running back David Montgomery has just one rushing touchdown, and Chicago usually throws when trying to score.
This creates a great betting opportunity to pick a Bears wide receiver to score a touchdown on Monday night. The best Bears receiver: Allen Robinson.
Tight end Jimmy Graham leads the Bears with five touchdowns, but the Vikings will cover the former Saints star. Quarterback Nick Foles should find Allen Robinson often against an injured Vikings secondary on Monday night, and the duo will connect for a touchdown.
The game prop that you should be focusing on is a double-bet featuring the Minnesota Vikings. Taking the Vikings at -2.5 and under 44.5 points is currently set at +230, which is a pretty good price for this type of bet.
Minnesota might have the worse record in this game, but the Vikings have won their last two games, both against division opponents. Chicago has now lost three straight games, and their offense is a complete disaster.
The Vikings will head into Chicago and win this game, but it’s going to be a low-scoring affair. Double up with this bet and take the Vikings -2.5 and the under 44.5 to earn a nice payday.
The Chicago Bears are the home team in this matchup, and the line is set for them to score over/under 20.5 total points. That means that right around three touchdowns, or two touchdowns and two field goals.
At first glance, that seems like a lot of points for a bad offensive team, but the Bears are averaging 19.8 points per game this season. The line is set pretty close to their season average, but Chicago has been trending in the wrong direction offensively.
The Bears have scored more than 20 points in just two of their last six games, and the defense has been responsible for some of those points. Chicago has too many holes on offense, and they aren’t getting to 20 points in this game.
The defense will once again keep the Bear competitive, but the offense will fall short against an improving Vikings defense. Take the under 20.5 points for the home team (Bears) on Monday Night Football.
