Soldier Field in the Windy City will take center stage tonight in primetime for an NFC intraconference showdown between two teams heading in opposite directions.
For the visiting New York Giants, no team has ever gotten off to a 0-5 start and made the NFL playoffs, so Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin certainly have their work cutout.
For the Chicago Bears, while 3-2 is considered a decent start, one game over .500 is certainly not good enough to capture the franchise's fourth NFC North title (19th overall).
Opening kickoff for tonight's Thursday Night Football schedule 2013 is slated for 8:35 p.m. EST (5:35 p.m. PST) live on NFL Network.
As far as the NFL odds are concerned, Las Vegas' experts list the Bears as [-8] favorites against the Giants [+8] and the OVER/UNDER is set at a combined total of 47½ points.
In addition to the game's point spreads, betting lines have the Chicago Beats' ML at -320 and New York's straight-up figures at +260 ML.
While most people's perception is that Da Bears will run over the G-Men this evening, NFL week 6 picks tell an entirely different story.
According to the latest figures, 58 percent (1547-1103) of the betting action actually favors the Giants as underdogs.
In contrast, only 42 percent (1103-1547) of the betting population believes Chitown will win by a touchdown and a two-point conversion in this TNF affair.
