Bears vs Vikings Prediction Week 5
Early NFL predictions and picks are from ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI).
Bears: 24.6% to win
Vikings: 75.1% to win
The Vikings could control this game from start to finish, according to the opening betting lines. ESPN's FPI seems to also think no upset win is coming for Chicago. I believe the Bears can keep this one close, though. Four of the last five head-to-head meetings between these divisional foes have ended within one possession. Chicago is capable of controlling the clock with their strong rushing attack, which puts the pressure on quarterback Kirk Cousins to keep up. Give me Bears +7 (-110).
