The Chicago Bears won’t have to wait long to return to the football field.

Fresh off a 29-22 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, the Bears will be back in action on Thursday Night Football with a home meeting against the Washington Commanders. And oddsmakers don’t really know what to do with this game.

The spread for this Week 6 matchup opened as a pick ‘em at Caesars Sportsbook, which is the official odds partner of Bet Chicago Sports. The moneyline price for each team is listed at -110 at the time of this writing on Sunday evening.

So what does this mean? Assuming the Bears get approximately 1.5-2 points for being the home team, oddsmakers are saying the Commanders would be slightly better if these two teams played on a neutral field.

The Commanders are 1-4 on the year and have lost four in a row since defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars in the opener. The Bears, meanwhile, are below .500 (at 2-3) for the first time all year after losing by a touchdown against the Vikings.

Both of these teams had backbreaking turnovers on the final drive of their respective game. Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz threw an interception at the 1-yard line with 6 seconds left, which sealed a 21-17 loss to the Titans.
