BIG AL's RED-HOT NFL BEARS/VIKINGS WINNER!
Chicago Bears (5-4) vs Minnesota Vikings (3-5)
Monday, November 16, 2020 at 8:15 pm
At 8:15 pm, our selection is on the Minnesota Vikings minus the points over Chicago. The Vikings started this season 1-5, but have reeled off back to back wins to move their record to 3-5 on the season. Last year, of course, Minnesota was 10-6, and qualified for the playoffs as the NFC #6 seed. They upset New Orleans in the Wild Card round, before losing, 27-10, to San Francisco in the divisional round. So, it was a bit of a surprise that the Vikes got 2020 off to such a poor start. But they're trying to right their ship, and tonight's game will be critical if they're to make a push for this year's playoffs. Last season, even though Minnesota won 10 regular season games, the Bears won both meetings. The good news for the Vikings is that NFL single digit favorites, that owned a winning record the previous season, have gone 70-40 ATS when playing with revenge from two losses the previous season. Even better: NFL favorites off back to back wins, with a win percentage of .375 (or worse) have cashed 64.7% since 1983. And winning teams (like the Bears), off 3+ losses, have cashed just 28% since 1994 if they were an underdog (or PK). Take Minnesota. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
