Week 6 of the NFL is already close to its start and the teams drawn to open the round are not having a good time this season. Bears and Commanders will face each other on the traditional Thursday Night Football in search of an important victory, which can make either of them jump up the table and regain prestige with their fans.
This will be a match between some of the worst teams in the NFC North and NFC East, so there is no favoritism in this case. Added together, the Bears and Commanders have just three wins. The Bears lost to the Vikings in the last round (22-29), while the Commanders received the Titans and lost 21-17.
Let’s take a closer look at the teams’ momentum below.

Why Bet on the Bears?
The Bears played 5 games, won 2, and lost 3. The good news for the hosts is that these two victories happened in Chicago, that is, in their domains.
In the three games where they needed to visit someone, the Bears failed to surprise their opponents and lost all the clashes away from home. In the last round, they visited the Vikings and lost 29-22. They even won the third quarter 9-0, but in the last part, they didn’t keep their form and suffered another 8 points.
With -20 net points, the Bears need to beat the Commanders by a good margin of points to climb the leaderboard and show their fans that it’s still possible to seek the leaderboard.
As it is a duel against a team that also faces a lot of difficulties, the Bears can count on the support of the fans at home, as they won the two games they played in their stadium. This is their chance to keep the streak going and win again.
Why Bet on Commanders?
The Commanders haven’t bolstered themselves well for the current NFL season and the results of poor signings can already be seen on the field. With 4 losses in five games, they embitter the last place in the NFC East and see their chances of going to the playoffs further and further.
The only game they’ve won so far was their debut against the Jaguars. Playing at home, the Commanders fought hard to beat the Jaguars 28-22, a result that filled fans with hope, as it was the first game of the season.
What happened next were just defeats. Lions, Eagles, Cowboys, and Titans easily beat them, sinking them in the table after the opening rounds.
A curious thing about the team’s situation translates to other sports, as neither in the MLS, MLB, or NBA, the teams from the capital have been able to pass to the post-season of any tournament. It has been, overall, a terrible year for sports fans in Washington, and doesn’t seem like their NFL franchise is going to change that.
In its favor, the Washington team will be able to motivate its players with the statistics of the confrontations against the Bears. In the last 11 official games between them, the Commanders have won 7 times and lost 4. Surprising the Bears is possible. Coach Ron Rivera is aware of these numbers and will try to win this match.
Final Betting Analysis: Bears vs. Commanders
While the Bears’ recent momentum looks a little better, it’s quite difficult to pin down a favorite for this match. Both teams have been living with defeats for some time now and, certainly, one of them will have to overcome to win this confrontation.
The home factor counts in favor of the Bears, as they won the two games they played in their domains this season. On the other hand, The Commanders have the most wins in their latest clashes against their opponent on Thursday.
It will be a difficult and balanced game. But we believe in the Bears’ victory.
