The Chicago Bears host the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football this week.
Matt Youmans and William Hill preview the game and break down their best bets.
Minnesota Vikings (-3.5, 44) at Chicago Bears
Youmans: My dislike for this Bears team is focused on Matt Nagy, who is a poor play-caller and overall weak head coach, and Ryan Pace, a general manager who’s made countless clumsy moves. Chicago has the league’s worst rushing offense (82.3 yards per game) and fourth-worst scoring offense (19.8 ppg). A depleted offensive line is part of the problem. Nagy tried to lay the blame on quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who was benched, yet the offense has been no better with Nick Foles as the starter. Nagy needs to surrender his authority to call plays because it has been obvious for a long time that he has no clue. In a 24-17 loss at Tennessee on Sunday, the Bears piled up 175 yards and 14 points in the final six minutes of garbage time. The Titans were yielding 128 rushing yards per game before the Bears rushed for 56 yards. Here’s another indictment of Nagy: Chicago is the league’s most penalized team.
