2014 NFL Preseason Week 2 Picks – Chicago Bears Favored on Thursday Night vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars on ESPN


The Jacksonville Jaguars visit the Chicago Bears on Thursday night in a game that may be seen on ESPN. The house team would have been a solid favorite in that one but it’s the preseason and getting points is definitely worth a try the preseason. The Chicago Bears have the greater starting quarterback in this matchup with Jay Cutler against Chad Henne but it’s unlikely that Cutler will play higher than a quarter or so. And the Chicago Bears haven’t any quality backups behind Cutler. This is a look at Thursday’s game and NFL Preseason Week 2 Picks.

NFL Preseason Week 2 Picks Bears are the play hereJacksonville Jaguars Quarterbacks

The Jacksonville Jaguars have Chad Henne while the starter and he is capable NFL quarterback. He isn’t flashy but he is able to move the offense. The backup is rookie Blake Bortles who is the long run franchise quarterback. Following those two it’s Ricky Stanzi and rookie Stephen Morris.

Chicago Bears Quarterbacks

The Chicago Bears have a great starter in Jay Cutler but it’s really ugly behind him. The team is relying on former flop Jimmy Clausen who is an interception waiting to take place, Jordan Palmer whose biggest claim to fame is being Carson Palmer’s brother and rookie David Fales out of San Jose State.

Game Notes

The Jacksonville Jaguars were poor this past year in the preseason under head coach Gus Bradley because they went 1-3. The Chicago Bears went 2-2 last season under head coach Marc Trestman. Three of the four preseason games for the Chicago Bears last season went within the total. Betting the over in the preseason has actually been a good bet in recent seasons with 55% of games exceeding the full total within the last few six years.

NFL Preseason Week 2 Picks: The general public will likely be laying the points with the Chicago Bears in that one as they are at home but there’s really nothing to like concerning the Chicago Bears once Cutler leaves the game. I will need the points and go with the Jacksonville Jaguars in this contest.
