Why Bet The Minnesota Vikings To Beat The Bears

The Vikings rushing offense finished dead last in 2016. With rookie RB Dalvin Cook it took a huge boost this season. With Cook out for the rest of the year with an ACL, it’s time for RB Latavius Murray to handle the workload.

Murray got a three year deal for $15 Million this offseason and it is time for him to earn it. Two years ago Murray recorded 1066-yards with the Oakland Raiders. Last season, he scored 12 touchdowns.

Why Bet The Chicago Bears To Beat The Vikings

QB Mitch Trubisky was selected with the second pick in the 2017 NFL draft. He wasn’t supposed to play this season, but QB Mike Glennon has been so awful the Bears couldn’t keep their top pick on the sideline any longer. Glennon has thrown five interceptions in the last four games.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to get Mitch on the field,” Bears offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said. “He’s as close to ready as any rookie I’ve ever been around.”

The Bears offense needs to establish run to keep pressure off of Trubisky. Chicago averages 117.5 rushing yards per game this season. With the dangerous duo of Jordan Howard (63 car, 252 yards 4 TDs) and rookie Tarik Cohen (30 car, 181 yards, 0 TDs) there is no reason to the training wheels off of Trubisky this week.

Vikings Vs. Bears Week 5 Betting Analysis:

The Vikings’ defense is the 6th best in the NFL and will not be embarrassed by a rookie QB. Chicago will keep the game close for about one half, but the inevitable rookie mistakes will come. Take Minnesota to win and cover.

Why Bet The Seattle Seahawks To Beat The Rams

Russell Wilson is the reason this team wins. This team lives and dies on how well or how bad he plays. He had 202 yards rushing on scramble plays last season, when ankle and knee injuries limited his mobility.

Wilson already has a NFL-best 127 rushing yards by QBs on scrambles through four games. His mobility could help the team move the chains Sunday against a Rams defense that has sacked him 39 times in 10 games, the most of any opponent.

Why Bet The Los Angeles Rams To Beat The Seahawks

The Rams have the blueprint to beat the Seahawks. Seattle struggles some on the road, but they still win more often than not. Except against the Rams. Combined in St. Louis and Los Angeles, the Rams are 4-1 at home versus the Seahawks since Russell Wilson was drafted in 2012.

With the defense hutting Wilson down, the Rams offense will have to solve the Legion of Boom. The LA Rams have the best scoring offense in the NFL, averaging 35.5 points per game. Jared Goff was a bust a year ago. Now he looks like the NFC West’s best quarterback. This league is crazy.

If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On:

  • Seahawks are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games in Week 5.
  • LA Rams is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 games when playing Seattle

Rams Vs. Seahawks Week 5 Betting Analysis:

I don’t trust the Seahawks when visiting the Rams. They are 0-4 ATS in their last four visits, and something usually happens where they don’t play to their best. Take the Rams to win this NFC West battle.

Why Bet The San Francisco 49ers To Beat The Colts

The 49ers haven’t won a game this season, but they sure have been a solid bet. San Francisco is 3-1 ATS, and the Cardinals needed overtime to take them down last weekend.

San Francisco has dropped three losses with a combined 8-points differential. The 49ers’ young defense has been beyond impressive, though injuries to linebacker Reuben Foster (high ankle sprain) and strong safety Eric Reid (knee) could catch up with them.

Last week, they sacked Carson Palmer six times. The team is tied for sixth in the NFL in fewest yards allowed per play at 4.9.

Why Bet The Indianapolis Colts To Beat The 49ers

Indianapolis gave the Seahawks a scare in the first half of last week’s tilt, but couldn’t hold it together for a full four quarters. The Colts have been outscored 68 to 12 in the second half of the three losses this season against the Rams, Cardinals, and Seahawks; all three NFC West teams like the 49ers.

QB Jacoby Brissett has completed 59.1% of his passes with two touchdowns and two interceptions. With Andrew Luck coming back to practice this past week, Brissett will have to make the most of his playing time. Expect him to be sharp.

If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On:

  • 49ers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in Week 5.
  • 49ers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games.
  • Colts are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss.
  • Colts are 26-9 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.

49ers at Colts Week 5 Betting Analysis:

The 49ers defense is underrated, mostly because the offense is so inept. Indianapolis is one of the worst coached and managed teams in the NFL. Give me San Francisco to win on the road.
