Betting Washington Commanders
The Commanders appeared like they were going to snap their 3-game losing streak last Sunday following a back-and-forth meeting with Tennessee that watched them take the lead by three points on two different times.
Unluckily for them and their fans at home, quarterback Carson Wentz kept them from getting the win when he threw a late pick at the Titans’ 2-yard line with 13 seconds to go. Wentz had put on a rather decent performance otherwise.
He threw for 359 yards and 2 touchdowns, both of them directed at rookie 3rd-round draft pick Dyami Brown. Washington has displayed a few glimpses of what it is capable to do on offense as of late but has not been able to generate more than seventeen points since Week 2.
Washington was the one that should have won last week but they did not for obvious reasons. Wentz went from hero to zero on what was the game-deciding interception at the end of the game. Wentz has tossed an interception in 4 of the first 5 games. That includes two in the Commanders’ win that opened the season over the Jacksonville Jaguars. If Carson Wentz were to avoid turning the ball over, they could win this one.
Betting Chicago Bears
Fields tossed a TD pass last Sunday for the first time since Week 1. That is certainly a step in the right direction. He is probably going to need to throw at least a couple more, though, the way that he did against the San Francisco 49ers in the season-opening game. If he were to be able to do that, Chicago should have a great opportunity to get its third win of the year at home.
The Bears deserve credit for rallying back from a 21-3 deficit and take a lead over the Minnesota Vikings in the fourth quarter in an away game. But they just left too much time left on the clock for the hosting team, who seemingly went to sleep following the intermission before they scored the game-winning TD with 2:26 left on the clock.
Chicago was near to getting its first win on the road but they could not seal the deal. Still, da Bears are earning more confidence on the offense side of the football and should be prepared to demonstrate quarterback Justin Fields under the bright lights. The 2nd-year signal-caller has passed for increasingly more yards in every one of the last four games. The ability by Fields to create plays might be the difference maker.
Washington Commanders vs. Chicago Bears Pick
The Washington Commanders are looking awful as of right now. The offensive lacks a running game and they rank 28th in scoring offense. Washington has also disappointed defensively. They rank 19th in passing defense and 26th in scoring defense.
The Chicago Bears have their own problems, but they have been playing their best ball at home. They rank fifth in rushing offense and 9th in passing defense. The Bears have also had a hard schedule that features several road games. Take the Bears at home.
