Commanders QB Carson Wentz over 1.5 pass TDs (+150)

Everyone is pointing toward a dominating ground performance from Washington, but this seems to be a situation for which Chicago has to be ready. If the Bears are content loading the box and forcing Wentz to beat them with his arm, we could see a few chunk plays break out against the Bears secondary.

Bears TE Cole Kmet under 29.5 receiving yards (-120)

While the Commanders defense can be a funnel at times, it's mostly to the receivers. No. 1 tight ends haven't eclipsed 29 yards against the Commanders this year. In a neutral game script, we could see the Bears go super run-heavy, as they currently have the lowest pass rate over expectation in the entire NFL. Safety Kamren Curl is having an excellent season so far, ranking second in our new successful coverage over expected metric, which should make life tough for Kmet on prime time.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson under 51.5 rush yards (-115)
