Our Selection : No one could argue that Week 5 in the NFL was surreal and many may belive that against all reason may be the way to go in Week 6. We’re not of that opinion. The Giants suck, the Bears after losing last week are still a playoff caliber team. At some point the Giants are going to put up some points, so we’ll add a unit on the OVER 47.5 but Take the Chicago Bears -7 -130 at 5Dimes and get reduced juice on every play.
