Playoff hopes are on the line on Monday night when the Chicago Bears host the Dallas Cowboys. Vegas doesn't have a clear favorite at the moment, favoring Chicago by just one point, according to OddsShark.
The Bears' wild card hopes took a huge hit in Week 13 when they lost to the Minnesota Vikings in an overtime heartbreaker. Chicago was a 2.5-point underdog but couldn't even manage to cover that when the Vikings kicked the game-winning field goal. The Bears fell to 6-6 on the season and have been a poor bet in Vegas, going just 2-9-1 against the spread. There is still no word on whether Jay Cutler will be ready to go this week.
The Cowboys' first place spot is precarious with the Eagles breathing down their necks. They did their part last week, beating the Oakland Raiders, 31-24, on Thanksgiving. Dallas was favored by 9.5 points, but failed to cover the spread. The Cowboys are 7-5 in the standings and 8-4 against the spread. They're expected to have Sean Lee back this week, which would be a big boost to the defense.
