Washington Redskins Kirk Cousins

Redskins Have Been Brutal on the Road

When the Chicago Bears started the season 0-3, it would be been farfetched to believe they’d be favored in any game this year. But with the Washington Redskins in town for a Week 14 showdown, oddsmakers opened the Bears as 3.5-point favorites.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Bears' last 10 games.
  • The Redskins are 0-9 SU in their last nine games on the road.
  • This is only the second time this season the Bears have been a favorite.

The ‘Skins have historically enjoyed facing the Monsters of the Midway, going 6-2 SU and a sizzling 7-1 ATS in their last eight versus the Bears. Chicago has not been showing up in December in recent years (0-7 SU, 2-5 ATS in their previous 7 December contests) which certainly won’t instill any confidence in Chicago backers.

A major reason for the oddsmakers’ decision to favor the Bears in this one is the Redskins’ awful road record in 2015. Washington (5-7 SU) is winless away from home this year, covering just once during that span.
