NFL odds and lines, Bears vs. Vikings 2013: No clear favorite in Minnesota

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Most Vegas books have even odds on this NFC North game in Week 13.

The Minnesota Vikings host the Chicago Bears in Week 13, and Vegas is expecting a close match. According to OddsShark, the Vikings are a slight 1-point favorite, but some books have even odds on the game.

The Bears opened as 1.5-point favorites, but that line dropped after they got blown out by the St. Louis Rams, 42-21. The Bears were 2.5-point underdogs in that game and failed to cover the spread. They drop to 6-5 in the standings and have been a poor bet this season, going just 2-8-1 against the spread. Chicago's playoff hopes are sinking without Jay Cutler.

The Vikings made a mess of things in the NFC North, tying the Green Bay Packers, 26-26. Remarkably, they had even odds in that one and with the rare tie, the game was a push. The Vikings are now 2-8-1 in the standings and 4-6-1 against the spread. Their playoff hopes are almost dead, but they're hoping to play spoiler down the stretch.
