NFL Week 4 Prop Bet: Minnesota Vikings 0.5 1st Half Spread vs. the Chicago Bears
1ST HALF VIKINGS +0.5 point -115
Aside from the Bears second quarter on Monday night versus the Redskins their offense has been nonexistent this season. The Bears still have not been able to run the ball well and trusting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is tough to do. The Vikings I believe are putting the bulk of their offense in the hands of running back Dalvin Cook. Cook has been tremendous so far, rushing for 375 yards, which equates to a 6.6 average per carry to go along with four touchdowns. Cook is outrushing the entire Bears team by 86 yards.
As long as Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins just manages the offense and makes a couple throws, I can see this Vikings team—that should be 3-0—controlling the line of scrimmage and putting together at least 13 first half points. The Bears offense will take a step back and find it difficult to establish drives versus the Vikings defense, making the first half play, the best prop bet for NFL Week 4.
1ST HALF SCORE
MINNESOTA VIKINGS 13
CHICAGO BEARS 7
