Washington Commanders (-115) @ Chicago Bears (+100)

This game is so bad, it just may be good.

Carson Wentz is racking up the yardage, and with 1,390 passing yards, it’s wild that his team is 1 – 4.

Wentz is slinging it, as he is third in the league with 210 passing attempts. However, the Bears are one yard behind the Seahawks for the worst run defense in the NFL. So Ron Rivera may keep it on the ground to bring Washington their second victory of the year.

Even if the Commanders run the ball more tonight than they have in the past, Wentz’s passing prop is low enough; he shouldn’t have any problem hitting it.

Brian Robinson Jr. played his first game of the year on Sunday, seeing the majority of the touches; Antonio Gibson took a backseat. The Commanders will be looking to jumpstart their offense with Robinson.

Gibson certainly wasn’t establishing a solid run game, so they will look to the rookie today. As previously mentioned, the Bears have one of the worst run defenses in the NFL, so it should be a coming-out party for Robinson.

Carson Wentz is electric on Thursday Nights, averaging 240 passing yards and posting a record of 6 – 0. He should carve up the Bear’s defense and get the Commanders back on track. Tonight will be a big win for Washington. Bettors may even consider an alternate spread.

Washington -1 (-110)
