The NFL betting market is live, meaning it’s always moving, adjusting and reacting to a handful of factors, like money, betting action, weather and player news.

This is also where the saying, “pros bet numbers, not teams” comes from.

For example, if tonight’s Vikings vs. Bears line was Minnesota -3, savvy bettors would be all over Kirk Cousins and Company.

Chicago +10.5? You can bet that sharp action would be burying the underdog.

Interestingly, tonight’s Vikings vs. Bears spread is sitting between 6.5 and 7 across the market, begging an interesting question: Should bettors lay the points with Minnesota or take the full touchdown with Chicago?

Our NFL PRO Projections provide a very clear answer.
