NFL picks against the spread, Week 4: You have to like the Cowboys (to cover)

Christopher Hanewinckel-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Dallas Cowboy host the Chicago Bears on a Monday night matchup tonight. Both teams are looking to go 3-1 and be tied for first in their divisions. as for what Vegas thinks, the Cowboys are favored with a three and a half point spread, so essentially barely more than the standard spread for a home team.

Who do we pick?

Well, we have already seen both teams on national television. Jay Cutler melted down, berating his teammates and his offensive coordinator. Tony Romo shredded the world champion New York Giants.

Pass protection is an issue for both teams. The Bears have a league-high 17 sacks. They also give up a ton of sacks. However, Romo under duress is better than Cutler because of his mobility.

Bottom line? Take the Cowboys. They are at home, they like the bright lights and they already have shown they will show up on national television. We like the Cowboys, -3.5.
