Bears vs Vikings Prediction Breakdown

Minnesota comes into this game after losing last week, but they have played very well over their last six games. The Vikings have won five of their last six games and will be at home for this matchup. Chicago should have had their second win in a row last week against Detroit, but they fell apart in the last few minutes. Chicago has played better in their last two games, but I still don’t trust the offense to score consistently. Minnesota has been able to play very well with Dobbs at quarterback and I like them in this spot. Take the Vikings here.
