Dallas Cowboys at Chicago Bears:
Line: Cowboys by 4.5
Analysis: A rare non-division match up on Thursday night. Both teams are coming off Thanksgiving day losses, but none more humiliating that the Cowboys 33-10 loss to division rival Philadelphia that has Dallas out of the playoffs as of this morning. Cowboys haters are circling, singing songs of another late season collapse and 8-8 finish, this time off of a promising 8-3 start. The 0.500 take ends tonight as the Cowboys running game pounds the toothless Bears into submission. Chicago head coach Marc Trestman is learning the hard way that this isn’t Canada. The 5-6 Bears are on the edge of falling out of playoff contention for the second straight year and he, along with general manager Phil Emery are going to be run out of town on the “L.” Lots of points will be scored, mostly by the Cowboys.
Straight pick: Cowboys
Spread Pick: Cowboys – 4.5
OU Pick: Over 52.0
Pick Confidence: Low on all three picks.
