The Chicago Bears will aim to stay undefeated at home when they host the Washington Commanders in Week 6 NFL action. The Commanders had a win served to them on a silver platter in Week 5, but a costly interception thrown by quarterback Carson Wentz gifted the Tennessee Titans the victory.

Meanwhile, the Bears showed a lot of fight in a 29-22 road loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Running back David Montgomery returned from injury and racked up 82 total yards to go along with a rushing touchdown. Second-year quarterback Justin Fields threw for a season-high 208 yards as well.

Commanders vs Bears Prediction & Pick

There's a reason this game is being tabbed as a pick 'em with the lowest point total on the Week 6 board. The offenses of Washington and Chicago have shown little reason to trust them in 2022. They both rank outside the top 20 teams in terms of points per game, yards per play and giveaways.

That's why having the better defense is going to be the key to winning this game. The Commanders cannot keep their opponent out of the end zone, allowing 25.6 points per game (T-No. 26 in NFL). However, the Bears are playing "bend don't break" defense and are only allowing 21.2 points per game (15th).

Final Score Prediction: Commanders: 17 | Bears: 20

Commanders vs Bears Best Bet

All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

These teams haven't met since the 2019 season and a lot has changed since then. Both teams are rolling with a new starting quarterback and a new head coach. New faces like Darnell Mooney and Jahan Dotson can be found on offense, while Jaquan Brisker and Jamin Davis have emerged on defense.

When it comes down to it, the Bears have yet to lose at home and have allowed a combined 30 points in those two contests. These Chicago defenders feed off the energy of the crowd and will surely get to Wentz a few times considering Washington has allowed 20 sacks on the year (No. 30 in NFL).

Bet: Chicago Bears ML (-112)
