Thursday night is here and the first week of Thursday Night Football on NFL Network is also here. After a Wednesday night season kickoff that ended with the Dallas Cowboys shocking everyone and beating the New York Giants, Week 2's kickoff game should be another promising matchup. Vegas has set the line for this game at just under a touchdown in favor of the home team.
Knowing that, let us get on with our picks against the spread.
Last week, I went 11-5 against the spread.
Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers (-6.5): Aaron Rodgers and company will strive to avoid an 0-2 start to the season, and at that, avoid starting the season 0-2 at home. Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall and company will be a formidable task. In fact, as a secondary wager for the night, you should definitely take the over. However, back to the actual game, despite the offensive talent that Chicago has at its disposal, in the end it is a bounce back home game for the Pack. Pick: Packers, -6.5
