0.5 unit on Chicago -235 (moneyline) (risk 0.5 to return 0.71) RESULT: loss
2 units on Game Total UNDER 42 -115 (risk 2 to return 3.74) RESULT: win
Chicago has won seven of its eight home games while the Eagles are 4-4 on the road following their 24-0 win at Washington on Sunday. The Bears have won four in a row and did not let up even after clinching the NFC North as they went on to win two road games at San Francisco and Minnesota. The Bears have allowed a total of only 45 points their last four games and they are third in the NFL in yards allowed. They also lead the league in points allowed (17.7 per game) and they have the top-ranked rush defense. Jordan Howard was the star of Sunday's win over the Vikings as he ran for 109 yards and two touchdowns and Mitchell Trubisky went 18-for-26 for 163 yards and no interceptions. The Vikings were held to 164 total yards and Kirk Cousins was sacked four times. Chicago has been relentless in winning its last four games and not having many players sit out waiting for the playoffs. That is a good sign heading into the postseason and they'll face a quarterback in Nick Foles, who is not 100 percent healthy due to bruised ribs and is listed as probable for this game. Philadelphia won five of its last six games to eke into the playoffs, but four of those wins came against teams with losing records and the win over Houston was on a last-second field goal. Chicago's last four games have all gone UNDER and Philly has stayed UNDER four of its last five Wild Card games. The UNDER is 5-2-1 in the Eagles' last eight January games. Play the Bears on the moneyline and also take the UNDER.
