Free NFL Pick:
The Minnesota Vikings have started to win the necessary games they need to win in order to remain competitive in the NFC North as they beat Green Bay and Detroit in two consecutive weeks, and they will once again have the chance to do that here. The Vikings have one of the best RBs in the NFL with Dalvin Cook as he has compiled 858 yards and 12 TDs on the ground, but the Vikings have the ability to attack defenses over top with Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson. The Chicago Bears once again have a very good defense, but they have been terrible on the offensive side of the ball, especially on the ground as David Montgomery only has 1 rushing TD. Minnesota is on a hot streak and they should be able to contain the struggling Chicago offense. Final Score Prediction, Minnesota Vikings win and cover ATS 27-20.
