Chicago could get blown away by Gus-t
The Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress took a massive gamble when he replaced, quarterback, Tarvaris Jackson with Gus Frerotte part way through the season but, recently, it has looked like the right move.
Frerotte is never going to be a superstar but he does provide the Vikings with a solid base, one that had been lacking with Jackson in the side, and now Minnesota are pushing hard for the play-offs.
The 37 year old, former seventh round draft choice has endured an inauspicious career, throwing nearly as many interceptions as touchdowns, but, if he performs on Monday morning against the Chicago Bears, he could get one last chance of glory.
The Bears are tied with the Vikings at the top of the NFC North, so whoever comes away from the Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome with the win will be favourites to make the play-offs.
The Vikings will hope Adrian Peterson can continue his domination over the Bears (he has seven touchdowns in three games against Chicago) and he looks a great bet at 4/1 to score the first touchdown of the game.
The Bears, who have already exceeded all expectations this season, will need star quarterback Kyle Orton to be at his very best if they are to challenge, so look for him to connect early against one of the NFL's top rated defences.
A Chicago field goal as the first scoring play is priced at 7/2 is worth a punt as red zone conversion could prove an issue for the Bears.
