The Chicago Bears will take on the Minnesota Vikings in an NFC North showdown on Monday Night Football in Week 12.
Last week, the Bears earned the unenviable distinction of becoming the only team to force four-plus turnovers in a loss this season, while the Vikings’ five-game win streak came to a halt against the Denver Broncos.
We’ve assembled a same-game parlay with our favorite Bears vs. Vikings betting picks for MNF. Let’s take a look at the parlay.
Justin Fields over 194.5 passing yards
T.J. Hockenson anytime touchdown scorer
D.J. Moore anytime touchdown scorer
Joshua Dobbs 25+ rushing yards
The Bears are 3-8 and 25th in average scoring margin (-5.1). Their defense has been much better than it was during the first month of the season, but the same can be said about the Vikings. Justin Jefferson is not yet back, but the offense is still playing well with Dobbs, and the team has more to play for with a playoff berth still up for grabs.
Fields had a slow return last week and only managed 169 passing yards, but he went over this line in four of five games he didn’t exit prematurely to start the year. The Vikings are middle of the road in pass defense and gave up 200+ passing yards in five straight games, and Fields should find some success.
Hockenson has stepped up in Jefferson’s absence in a major way. He scored two touchdowns in his last four games and has been Dobbs’ favorite target, earning 34 targets and 22 receptions over his last three games. The Bears also allowed the eighth-most touchdowns to tight ends this season.
Moore, similar to Hockenson with Dobbs, is Fields’ favorite target and has been the focal point of the offense regardless of who’s been under center. His six touchdowns lead the team, and he scored last week in Fields’ return to the lineup. Chicago needs to involve him in multiple ways to have a chance of pulling the upset, and he’ll get the volume required to have a chance at the end zone.
Dobbs only picked up 21 rushing yards a week ago but has gone over 25 in eight of 11 games this season. The Bears’ pass-rush has improved with the arrival of Montez Sweat, and any collapse of the pocket will entice Dobbs to take off and use his legs. We also believe he’ll be even more inclined to fight for extra yards because of the nature of the rivalry and with the playoffs in sight.
