The Chicago Bears plan to start heralded rookie Mitch Trubisky after Mike Glennon did not work out well due to a plethora of turnovers in the Bear's first four games. Trubisky looked good in preseason, which earned him a chance to see what he can do with a team that has struggled at the quarterback position for years. Minnesota suffered a huge loss last game with Dalvin Cook out for the season with a knee injury. And their backup quarterback, Case Keenum, was just 16 of 30 for 219 yards in a 14-7 loss to Detroit last week. The Bears do have a running attack with Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen racking up the yards, with Cohen leading all running backs in the league with 24 catches. The Vikings are only 1-5 ATS their last six games against NFC North teams and 1-6 ATS their last seven road games dating to last season. Chicago has covered the spread six of its last seven home contests, four of five after an ATS loss, and seven of ten following any loss. This is a home-field series with the home team 21-8 the last 29 meetings. Look for Trubisky to provide a spark here. Take the points with the Bears.
