NFL odds for Commanders vs. Bears aren’t very bullish on a high-scoring Thursday Night Football affair.

The latest total for tonight’s game sits at between 37.5 and 38 (click here for live NFL odds), depending on the sportsbook, which is the lowest of the entire Week 6 slate.

In addition, the latest NFL weather report for Commanders vs. Bears in Chicago won’t exactly be an advantage for the offenses either.

With this in mind, let’s dig into the updated Commanders vs. Bears NFL weather report, including what it means for Thursday Night Football bettors.

Commanders vs. Bears NFL Weather Report

According to the National Weather Service, 10-15 mph winds, with gusts up to 30 mph, are expected at Soldier Field in Chicago on Thursday night.

Sports Insights’ NFL weather data, which offers a more detailed hourly breakdown plus stadium orientation, indicates that conditions will be even breezier, especially at kickoff.

As you can see, 15-16 mph winds are expected around the start of the game and through the first quarter, though the breezes do slightly diminish as the night progresses.

Still, consistent double-digit winds can have an effect on scoring by making it more difficult for quarterbacks to connect on explosive, downfield throws and harder for kickers to successfully convert longer field-goal attempts.

It’ll also be cold in Chicago on Thursday night, which will feel even colder with the winds whipping from end to end at Soldier Field.
