  Washington Redskins vs Chicago Bears
Point Spread Value

The Washington Redskins probably played themselves out of the playoffs last MNF following a lackluster 26-15 loss to the Panthers. All in all, it’s not really surprising. Kirk Cousins – gotta love his spirit – but is he really the long-term answer for the organization. In any event, the Bears have been the brunt of many a joke in recent seasons, including the 2016-2017 campaign. Since Jay Cutler’s dismissal/season-ending injury..whatever.. the Bears have been a damn sight better. In fact, they nearly pulled off an upset last week over the Packers. Given the way the Bears are still fighting even though they have nothing to play for one has to like their odds for week 16 NFL picks.

 The Survivor

The Bears sport merely three wins this season but there’s just something about them right now, the manner in which their game has changed that makes them a reasonable bet to consider in straight up betting markets. Yes, the Redskins by the stats are the better team with a 7-6-1 SU mark but they shot themselves in the foot last week and one wonders if the disappointment might cause a bit of a hangover that spills into their date with Chicago at Soldier Field.

 Game Total

The Redskins high-octane offense has lost it’s intensity in recent weeks, sputtering to a rather abysmal 26-15 loss at home to the Panthers in MNF. Perhaps it was the bright primetime lights in Kirk Cousins eyes… Whatever it was it’s a cause for concern as they take on what is a stout Bears defense that has played some good ball all season long despite the stats. Having said that the Bears are a bit of a revelation under Matt Barkley and if he can do what he did against the Packers last week this game could potentially crack the total.
