Two weeks of the regular season remain ahead of the start of the Play-Offs
Chicago Bears at San Francisco 49ers
The Bears clinched the NFC North division by beating the Packers at home last weekend and are one of the surprise turnaround stories of the season with a punishing defense and innovative offensive play-calling. The defense aspect is key as against the 49ers they will face third string quarterback Nick Mullens so the match up looks good not withstanding the 49ers upset victories against the Broncos and the Seahawks in the last fortnight. The Bears are -3.5 point favourites at 10/11 on the spread and I expect them to win and cover.
Kansas City Chiefs at Seattle Seahawks
The Chiefs are now in a dog-fight with the Chargers after their 28-27 defeat to their AFC West rivals last Thursday night. Both teams have 11-3 records with two weeks to go and the probably number one play off seeding at stake
This game is a tough prospect for the Chiefs. Seattle have a home advantage and are right in the thick of wild card contention in the NFC and the situation has a greater urgency after the Seahawks loss to the 49ers last weekend. The Seahawks as +2.5 point spread home underdogs at 10/11 with Skybet should be supported
Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions
The Vikings, following the change of offensive co-ordinator last week, ran the ball more effectively in beating the Dolphins to begin to re-assert their play off aspirations and now travel for a divisional game in Detroit. Detroit lost to the Titans, have a 5-9 record and i think the Vikings will cover -5.5 at 10/11
