Carries the largest underdogs of the wildcard weekend

Washington Football Team won NFC East by a 7-9 record, but it's the Chicago Bears who were the biggest underdogs on Sunday night for the wildcard weekend.
Fourth-occupied Washington will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who earned the top spot on the NFC wildcard. The Bucs were installed as 7.5-point favorites by DraftKings (NASDAQ 🙂 shortly after Washington secured last place in the playoffs with a win over Philadelphia in the last regular game of the season on Sunday night.
The Bears lost to Green Bay on Sunday but qualified 8-8 for the postseason when the Arizona Cardinals lost to the Los Angeles Rams. Chicago is a 9.5 point underdog with DraftKings' New Orleans Saints.
The other NFC matchup will hit the Rams at the Seattle Seahawks, who are 4.5 point favorites.
The final AFC order was established when the Tennessee Titans won the South Division with a last-minute win over the Houston Texans. That relegated Indianapolis to seventh place at the conference, and the Colts were used in Saturday's first game as a 6.5-point underdog at Buffalo with the second seed.
Fifth on the grid, Baltimore hit the Tampa Bay road as the only favorite this weekend, with the Ravens in Tennessee being favored by 3.5 points.
The wild card weekend ends with Cleveland playing its first playoff game since 2002 in Pittsburgh. The Steelers with third place on the grid are used by DraftKings as early 3.5 point favorites.
