TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION SUNDAY, OCTOBER 15TH
#256 CHICAGO (+3) over Minnesota at 1 PM EST
With momentum off a solid win and cover at Washington and with a couple of extra days to prepare, Chicago will have no trouble rising to the occasion and knocking off Minnesota. The Vikings are having all kinds of trouble protecting the football and they shouldn’t be favored on the road over anyone right now.
With four consecutive straight up losses in this division series, it won’t take much for the Bears to get up for this game. Thankfully, Chicago has played well at home against Minnesota posting a proud 16-6 SU and 15-7 ATS record in the last 22 meetings. Equally impressive, when priced as a home underdog and holding a team won/loss percentage of .250 or less, the Monsters of the Midway own a phenomenal 33-12-1 ATS record including a solid 23-6-1 ATS provided they take the field off a non-division war.
This isn’t a great wagering spot for the Purple People Eaters either. In their last 47 games, the Vikings have been an average at best football team inking a soft 25-22 SU and 18-28-1 ATS record. Provided Minnesota is fighting a foe that owns a team won/loss percentage less than .500, this team trend crashes to a timid 6-14 ATS. Also, in NFC North play lined up against an opponent that arrives with momentum off a SU and ATS win, the Vikes own a surprising 4-8 SU and 3-9 ATS record in their last 12 games.
Bears quarterback Justin Fields has played well in his last two games, and he will be the key to this upset victory. Take Chicago. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
