Bears vs. Redskins 2013 picks and predictions: Washington aiming to bounce back against Chicago

NFL experts are making their picks for the matchup between the Redskins and Bears.

The Redskins have had tough luck so far this season and will look to get back to their winning ways in Week 7 against the Bears. Washington is coming off a Sunday Night Football loss to the Cowboys, and have struggled to a 1-4 record. Chicago is doing well this season with a balanced offense and a defense that continues to produce turnovers.

The Redskins are viewed as home favorites by 0.5 points against the visiting Bears. The small spread made it easier on the CBS Sports crew to pick winners. With and without the spread, the eight-man panel voted 6-2 in favor of the Bears. The Yahoo! Sports crew also like the Bears with a 2-0 sweep.

The SB Nation panel did a clean sweep in votes, with a 5-0 vote for the Bears to be the Redskins in Washington.

The Redskins will host the Bears on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on FOX.
