Dalvin Cook to Score an Anytime Touchdown (-200)
Over the last two weeks, no running back has played as well as Cook. He has six total touchdowns over his last two games on 56 attempts. That means he scored a touchdown once one every 9.3 touches. Furthermore, Cook has scored at least one rushing touchdown in every game this season while scoring two or more in half of his games. Meanwhile, the Bears have given up a rushing touchdown to running backs in six of nine games this season. Expect the Vikings to focus on the running game tonight and ride Cook to victory. He is more likely to score twice than not at all.
Nick Foles Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-140)
When Foles took over as the starting quarterback in Week 4, he had four games in a row with one or fewer passing touchdowns. However, over the last two weeks, Foles has tossed two in each game. Meanwhile, the Vikings have been awful against the pass this season, giving up an average of 2.4 passing touchdowns per game. Furthermore, they have given up two or more passing touchdowns in all but two games this season. Expect Foles to have his third straight game with two passing touchdowns tonight.
Adam Thielen Under 4.5 Receptions (-160)
The 2020 season has been one of ups and downs for the Vikings’ passing attack and Thielen. He is averaging 4.6 receptions per game but has only three games this season with more than three receptions. Meanwhile, the Bears have held wide receivers under 14 receptions in every game this season and have twice held them to single-digits. To make matters worse for Thielen, he will be matched up with Kyle Fuller most of the night. The Vikings have focused on the running game since their bye week, and Thielen has a total of five catches over the last two weeks.
Darnell Mooney Over 38.5 Receiving Yards (-110)
As the season has gone on, Mooney’s role in the offense has grown. He had at least five targets in each of his last seven games, including a career-high 11 last week. Mooney has 36 or receiving yards in all but two games this season. Meanwhile, the Vikings have struggled to slow down wide receivers this season. They have given up at least 115 receiving yards to wide receivers in all but one game this season. Mooney has at least 40 receiving yards in three straight games, and he should have no trouble making it four in a row tonight.
Dalvin Cook Over 82.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
Cook is second in the league with 858 rushing yards. He is average 107.3 rushing yards per game and has rushed for at least 63 yards in seven straight games. Furthermore, Cook has over 130 rushing yards in four of his last five games, with the exception being the game he left early with an injury. Meanwhile, the Bears have given up 85 or more rushing yards in all but two games this season, including six of their last seven games. Unless Cook leaves tonight’s game early with an injury, there is no way he doesn’t rush for 100 yards for the third straight game.
