Before you make any Bears vs. Commanders picks or Week 6 predictions, you need to see the NFL best bets and analysis from SportsLine expert Mike Tierney.
A veteran sportswriter whose work appears periodically in The New York Times and Los Angeles Times, Mike Tierney has covered the NFL for decades and reported from seven Super Bowls. He entered the 2022 NFL season 232-204-10 against-the-spread since the start of the 2018 season.
In addition, he is 28-14-1 on his last 43 picks involving the Commanders, returning $1,253. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
Tierney knows that Washington quarterback Carson Wentz is a perfect 6-0 on Thursday Night Football, which is the best winning percentage of any quarterback with at least five Thursday night starts since 2000. Overall in primetime games, Wentz is 16-8 in his career.
Tierney also has factored in that Chicago faces a Washington team that has struggled against running quarterbacks. Since Ron Rivera took over as coach before the 2020 season, the Commanders have allowed 881 rushing yards to quarterbacks. That's the most in the NFL over that time frame and bodes well for the Bears' Justin Fields, who has 614 rushing yards in his career, the fourth most by a quarterback in that span.
Now, Tierney has locked in another confident ATS pick for Bears vs. Commanders on Thursday Night Football. We can tell you he's leaning Over the total, but he knows a crucial X-factor makes one side of the spread a MUST-BACK! You ABSOLUTELY need to see what it is before locking in any picks of your own.
