This NFC East "Championship Game" on Sunday will decide the fourth seed in the NFC playoffs. As one of just two games in which both teams have playoff implications riding on the outcome (Green Bay at Minnesota is the other), this has all the makings of a classic shootout.

As three point underdogs that do not even lose by a full point on average, Chicago covers the spread 56.1 percent of the time. With 52.4 percent needed to justify a wager, this would warrant a $39 play from a $50 player.
