How to Bet Bears vs. Redskins NFL Week 3 Odds, Trends and Prediction
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
Initially, the Bears were considered the team to beat in the NFC North. Chicago won the division going away last year as their rivals faltered. However, the new season has been a challenge for the Bears. Green Bay scored a betting on NFL games upset at the Bears in Week One. Denver nearly and probably should have upset Chicago in Week two. Of great concern for head coach, Matt Nagy is an offense not producing at the same rate as 2018. By contrast, expectations are routinely low for the Redskins. Washington continues to suffer from the ownership of Daniel Snyder.

So far, the Bears are 1-1 straight up, 0-2 vs. the line and with two under. Chicago escaped Denver with a 16-14 win thanks to a 53-yard field goal by Eddy Pineiro at the gun. Despite the win there are legitimate worries about the Bears. NFL metrics have Chicago ranked 30th for both total and scoring offense. However, the Monsters of the Midway defense has been strong and ranks third-best in the NFL. Head coach Matt Nagy has to be concerned about the production drop from quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. But Trubinsky was clutch at Denver at the end.
Players to Watch: QB Mitchell Trubisky (58% COMP, 348 YDS, 4.8 AVG, 0 TD, 1 INT, 65 RTG), RB David Montgomery (24 RSH, 80 YDS, 3.3 YPC, 1 TD, 2 REC, 33 YDS, 16.5 YPC, 0 TD), RB Tarik Cohen (4 RSH, 18 YDS, 4.5 YPC, 0 TD, 10 REC, 56 YDS, 5.6 YPC. 0 TD), WR Allen Robinson (11 REC, 143 YDS, 13.0 YPC, 0 TD), WR Taylor Gabriel (3 REC, 35 YDS, 11.7 YPC, 0 TD), TE Adam Shaheen (4 REC, 30 YDS, 7.5 YPC, 0 TD), PK Eddy Pineiro (4-4 FG, 1-1 XP)
Now Washington is 0-2 straight up and 1-1 against the spread with two overs. Week two was a disappointing 31-21 home loss to the rival Cowboys. Overall the Skins rank 25th for total offense and 30th for defense. Washington is also next to last for points allowed. In turn, new starting quarterback Case Keenum has been a pleasant surprise.
Players to Watch: QB Case Keenum (69% COMP, 601 YDS, 7.4 AVG, 5 TD, 0 INT, 111.2 RTG, RB Adrian Peterson (10 RSH, 25 YDS, 2.5 YPC, 1 TD), RB Chris Thompson (5 RSH, 13 YDS, 2.6 YPC, 12 REC, 116 YDS, 9.7 YPC, 0 TD),
