Neither team has much to play for in the NFL season finale at the Metrodome. Both the Vikings and Bears have been eliminated from the playoffs and are battling injuries as the season comes to a close. SB Nation's official odds partner Oddsshark has completely even odds on this game as both teams look to play out the string:
The Minnesota Vikings have struggled to win season finales for the past decade, going just 2-8 ATS past 10 Week 17 games and the trends are against them in hosting the Chicago Bears in 2011.The Bears have struggled without Jay Cutler but have motivation for a playoff push.
Jay Cutler and Matt Forte have been ruled out for Chicago, while Christian Ponder is likely to start for the Vikings as the rookie continues to develop. the only thing really up for grabs is draft position. The Vikings can pick anywhere from No. 2 to no. 6 depending on results from Sunday.
