San Francisco 49ers at Chicago Bears

Point Spread: -3.5Pick Popularity: 59%Category: Value Favorite

It feels like open season in the media on San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan. The 49ers fell to 2-4 with their lo s to the Colts on Sunday Night Football and have now lost four straight games.

Chicago also looked terrible last week, but its lo s to Tampa Bay didn't happen in prime time. You're getting the better team as a favorite herewhile the public Andrelton Simmons Jersey is more evenly split. That makes San Francisco a solid value play this week.


Arizona Cardinals vs. Green Bay Packers

Point Spread: -6.5Pick Popularity: 75%Category: Larger Favorite at a Reasonable Price

This game's line has moved due to COVID-19 news, as Packers star WR Davante Adams is among those on the Green Bay roster who could be sidelined. This game opened with Arizona favored by 3.5 points but has since jumped three more points.If the public catches on, this popularity number may rise, but that's no guarantee by Thursday.

There have been 17 teams favored by between 5.5 and 6.5 points in the first seven weeks, and the average pick popularity for that group is 91 percent. New Orleans last week against Seattle was the only other one with a pick popularity under 83 percent.
