Bears (-3.5) at 49ers (43): The 49ers have played well behind backup QB Nick Mullens and are off a pair of wins as their season winds down. Chicago has won seven of eight and will host a Playoff game, likely as the No. 3 seed in the Wild Card round. The offense has been more then pedestrian but the defense has been the key to the Bears’ success. Eight of their 14 foes have scored 17 points or less. UNDER

Steelers (+6) at Saints (53.5): Pittsburgh scored a huge win last week by finally defeating their long time nemesis, New England. Normally this would be a letdown spot for the Steelers but a spot in the Playoffs are at stake. A win would clinch the AFC North if the Ravens lose to the Chargers on Saturday. New Orleans controls the top NFC seed but there is plenty of leeway for a cover by the Steelers in a loss. Their past class should not be ignored. STEELERS

Chiefs (-2.5) at Seahawks (53.5): The Chiefs control the top AFC seed but would need a win here to maintain control if the Chargers won on Saturday. Seattle wraps up a Wild Card with a win here or next week against Arizona. Both teams are off tough losses but after starting the season 7-0 ATS the Chiefs are just 1-5-1 ATS since with five straight non-covers. SEAHAWKS
