NFL Betting Lines – No Favre, Lots Of Snow, Vikings Will Fall

Posted by Jackson Anthony on 12/20/2010 1:04:15 PM

With Minnesota Vikings third-string quarterback Joe Webb scheduled to get the first NFL betting lines start of his career tonight, expect to see an angry Chicago Bears defense pummel Webb in the forecasted Minneapolis snowstorm.

Chicago -8
Minnesota +8
Total 33.5

Brett Favre and Tarvaris Jackson are both done for the year and starting running back Adrian Peterson is questionable to play Monday night with knee and ankle injuries.

Whether Peterson can go or not, the Bears defense will be bringing the pressure. Webb, a 24-year-old rookie, has only completed two of five passes in his career for 8 yards.

After their humiliating 36-7 loss against the New England Patriots last NFL betting lines weekend, Chicago will be playing with a chip on their shoulder and facing a team that should allow them to dominate.

The last time the Bears faced a first-time starting quarterback was against the Miami Dolphins in Week 11.

With third-string quarterback Tyler Thigpen at the helm for the Dolphins, the Bears shutout Miami, racking up six sacks and allowing just 39 yards on the ground.

Expect Chicago to take a similar approach against Minnesota this NFL betting lines weekend.

NFL betting lines pick – Chicago (-8)
