Sometimes we dip into the Thursday pool, and tonight is one of those nights. Four more picks will follow between now and Sunday. Lines, as always, are drawn from Yahoo Pro Football PickEm.
Giants +7.5 at Bears: Obviously Eli Manning needs to play a cleaner game tonight, stay away from the turnovers. But if Manning keeps his poise and focus, the Bears secondary can be exploited. Chicago is allowing 8.3 yards per pass attempt this year (only four teams are worse) while the Giants are at 7.0. And the Bears will be without Charles Tillman, one of their best cover guys. I want the points here.
Your picks, as always, are most welcome in the comments.
