We look at who the top online handicappers are betting on for Monday Night Football.
On Sunday we looked at who the most popular online experts were betting for the NFL slate and it produced mixed results. The most popular bet of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to cover the spread won easily but some other ‘locks’ were not quite as successful.
However, we believe in strength in numbers, and for a single game like Minnesota Vikings vs Chicago Bears, there has to be some consensus from the popular online handicappers that can help guide our bets.
So, with that in mind, here’s who the experts are choosing for Monday Night Football:
The Action Network Monday Night Football pick is the Chicago Bears +3 Points. This is down to the fact that their model has the Bears +1.5 and the ‘Magic Number’ of 3 means there’s a lot of scope for a winning bet even if the Vikings win the game.
William Hill are top price +105 on the Bears +3 and new customers in New Jersey, Colorado, West Virginia and Indiana who use the code EXPERTVIP500 when signing up can claim a $500 Free Bet when depositing $250.
Nate Silver had a fairly good weekend, with seven wins on Sunday and his model says the Chicago Bears should be 1.5 point favorites on Monday night.
The fact that the Minnesota Vikings -3.5 means that the FiveThirtyEight model would suggest you hammer the Bears +3.5 at -115 with BetMGM.
The ESPN team have come down 7-3 in favor of the Minnesota Vikings for Monday Night Football. This suggests a Money Line bet on the Vikings, which is probably backed up by the fact that neither Seifert, Rutledge or Kimes had particularly good prediction weeks.

The handicapper made famous by Barstool Sports is 109-63 for his Play Of the Day (POD). He’s tipped up Bears +3.5 for Monday Night Football and that may be enough for some people.

Based on the above, we think the consensus is clearly that the Chicago Bears +3.5 is the bet to bet on.
Our advice is to bet this with a new sportsbook though, as then you’ll not only be able to win your bet, but you’ll also get a Free Bet when opening your account.
