We’ll put a lid on Week 10 of the NFL season when the Minnesota Vikings face the Chicago Bears in an NFC North showdown. Both teams are on different paths; while the Vikings are 3-5, they have won their last two games, and the Bears are 5-4 but losers of three straight.
Even as the road team, the Vikings are 3.5-point favorites in a game they should definitely win. The Bears are now without both running backs they had to start the season, leaving a batch of different players to sort through the mess.

Nick Foles – Over 37.5 Passing Attempts (-105)
We’re getting a nice discount on the juice here at 37.5 passing attempts, considering the Bears backfield is a disaster and they’ll likely be playing from behind most of the night.
In fact, Foles has eclipsed this 37.5 mark in all but one game this season; it was the game he came in relief for Mitch Trubisky against the Falcons, and he still threw the ball 29 times! As it is already, the Vikings are already seeing the eighth-most passing attempts per game (37.1)
Dalvin Cook – Over 108.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards (-115)
Cook has not performed well in three career performances against the Bears, totaling only 86 rushing yards. In those last two meetings, though, he has added 10 catches on 13 targets for 56 receiving yards. Point is, there’s more than one way to skin a cat, and the Vikings will look to be creative in a cold-weathered game.
Over the last five games, Cook has rushed for at least 130 yards in four of them. In the same span, he has even caught 13 of his 17 targets for 167 yards.
Cordarrelle Patterson – Over 43.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards (-115)
Who’s up for a revenge game? Good, me too. That’s exactly what we get tonight.
Patterson will slide into the Bears backfield, along with Ryan Nall and Lamar Miller, to try and piece together a solid performance tonight. If anyone, I’ll be taking that chance on Patterson, due to already being familiar with the offense and having quite a bit of motivation to do well.
We have already seen glimpses of success from Patterson in the backfield, as he caught three balls for 38 yards in a Thursday primetime game against the Buccaneers and four for 27 against the Titans last week. The Bears could very well be in catch-up mode all night, so that would make things easier for Patterson if he can get receptions out of the backfield.
