The NFC North tilt between the Bears and Vikings marks the last game both play in 2016. Which side will come up trumps for NFL bettors SU, ATS and Total in week 17 NFL betting?

 Chicago Bears vs Minnesota Vikings

 

Point Spread Value

The Vikings will miss the playoffs after starting the season 5-0 SU and looking all the part of viable contenders in the early goings. All that is left is a pointless game against a Chicago Bears team that perpetually seems to be rebuilding. Vikings are 8-7-0 ATS with a -0.5 losing margin and -1.4 differential versus the spread. The Bears are 7-8-0 ATS with a -6.1 losing margin and -2.7 differential versus the spread. It’s a tossup to some extent, but, to put it bluntly, there is no way laying almost a touchdown with the Vikings, who are 2-8-0 SU and 3-7-0 ATS in their last ten games, is going to appeal.

The Survivor

The Vikings are a far cry from the team that started 5-0 SU. In their last ten games, they have but two wins and three covers to show for their efforts. In short, the seemingly hopeless 3-12-0 SU Chicago Bears aren’t exactly without a shot. It’s a longshot NFL pick by all means. Consider last week was forgettable as well. Nevertheless, just as the Vikings seem overcooked in spread betting markets, so too are they in money line markets. The odds are too steep for a team that is practically struggling too.

 Game Total

The Vikings defense is stretched to the limit and with just one last game of the season, they’ll be glad to close the book on 2016. Overall, the Vikings are 6-9-0 in O/U betting. The Bears cut a paltry figure in 2016 but they’re 7-8-0 in O/U betting and their defense has been better than most would give it credit. In a meaningless slugfest, the UNDER seems to be the savvy NFL pick for week 17 bets.
