NFL: Tennessee Titans at Washington Commanders Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Commanders opened as 1-point road favorites against the Chicago Bears. That line flipped to the Bears being favored by 1 point (and then back again), and the O/U dropped from 42 to 38. This is two bad teams playing on a national stage, and bettors are not expecting a lot of fireworks.

Washington opened up their 2022-23 season with a win against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and it has been all downhill since Week 1. They’ve lost 4 in a row, and throwing out phrases like “do or die”, while coaches are throwing new players under the bus every week.

Losing today’s game against the Bears could cause Head Coach Ron Rivera to make more changes to the roster and/or coaching staff. A win might turn down the heat a little, but his own actions and words have made that hard to imagine right now. Enjoy the game!
