Monday Night Football: Mims picks Bears vs Redskins

These are my key thoughts and numbers for the game:

The Bears are favored by 5. The over/under is 41. The money line is Bears -240 and Redskins +190.

The game opened at 4 with the over/under at 41.

The Redskins are the home team.

The Redskins have a record of 0-2. The Bears are 1-1.

The last time these two squared off was in 2016. No historical or recent value in that number.

Washington is coming off a pounding to Dallas at home. The Bears are entering their 2nd straight road game after edging the Broncos. Chicago’s defense has played well so far. They have given up an average of 12 points per game. The Skins are scoring an average of 24 per game. Offensive tackle Trent Williams is still holding out.

The prop bet that interest me involves Mitchell Trubisky. His pass completions are set at 21.5. The price for over is -118 while the under is set at -108. The Bears are running the ball a great deal so that makes the under look appealing.

My lean on the game is the Skins plus the 5.

Bears don’t score a lot so if they give up their average, they must score 17 or more to cover. They have not scored over that in either of their 1st two games. Tell me what side you are going with for the game on Twitter. Use the #GTLivechat and I will follow you back.

So far, I am 3-1 with my leans on MNF and TNF. Last week was perfection with 2-0.
