One team looks to claw back into the NFC playoff picture while another aims to prove it belongs in the conversation when Dalvin Cook and the Minnesota Vikings head to Soldier Field to face Nick Foles and the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.

The Vikings (3-5) have won two straight since Cook returned from injury, while the Bears (5-4) have dropped three in a row. Both teams are chasing the Packers in the NFC North.

Minnesota is a terrible 2-14 against the NFL betting spread in its last 14 MNF appearances, while the Bears are on a 4-1 ATS run on Mondays. Let’s take a look at some of the best bets that fans should consider:

Chicago +3

What a difference a bell-cow back can make. The Vikings were 1-5 before Cook returned from injury. Since then, they’ve beaten the Packers 28-22 and Lions 34-20. That said, the Bears’ strengths match up with the Vikings, as well as when Chicago has the ball. Kirk Cousins is 0-9 straight up and ATS on Monday nights, and Chicago has the linebackers to contain Cook enough. When in doubt, take the points, especially when they’re on the home side.

Vikings-Bears Under 43

As awesome as Cook has been, Chicago’s strength is in the front of the defense, especially linebacker. Neither QB is much of a playmaker. Look for each team to drain the clock using the ground game, especially early. The Under has dominated this series and dominated Bears games the last few seasons. Lock in the best odds for the total at William Hill.

1st Quarter – Vikings -0.5

The Bears rally to win games, they don’t come out and take control right away. The Bears average a brutal 2.9 ppg in the opening 15 minutes, less than half what the Vikings score. Minnesota has allowed only 3.2 ppg in the first quarter, second-best in the league. Lock in the Vikings spread win at DraftKings.

Highest-Scoring Half – 2nd Half

5 Vikings vs Bears Betting Lines & Prop Bets to Back on MNF 1

These teams have combined to score far more points in the second half – and allow far more, too. How much more? Nearly a TD. These teams are scoring 20.4 ppg in the first half compared to 26.4 ppg in the last 30 minutes. They’ve allowed 22.1 in the first, 27.9 in the second. Each team should slog through the opening 30 minutes to establish the run before opening the playbooks after the break. Get the top odds for a second-half outburst at Unibet.

Dalvin Cook 75+ Rushing Yards and TD

5 Vikings vs Bears Betting Lines & Prop Bets to Back on MNF 2

Cook has been outrageously effective the last two weeks, with 478 total yards and six TDs. Chicago knows what’s coming – so did Green Bay and Detroit, and it didn’t matter. The Bears might not allow 200 yards and three TDs, but 75 and a score seem plausible at near-even odds. Find the Cook prop with the best odds at FOX Bet.
