Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson passes against the Indianapolis Colts in the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017, in Seattle.

The fifth season of the annual Play of the Day betting competition between the Sun’s sports staff is now under way, effective July 1.

Bankrolls start at $10,000 for each of the four participants, with the objective to increase it as much as possible over the next year. The minimum daily wager is $300, with a $200 penalty assessed for failing to place a bet on an assigned day.

Past winners are Case Keefer in 2017-2018, Ray Brewer in 2016-2017 and 2015-2016, and Taylor Bern in 2014-2015.

Seattle Seahawks plus-4 at Chicago Bears, $550 to win $500: When the 2018 season comes to an end, there's a good chance these two teams will be neighbors in the standings, with records ranging somewhere between 6-10 and 8-8. Neither squad looked much better than that in Week 1, so I'm simply taking the better quarterback tonight.

I think Russell Wilson can keep Seattle close in this game, despite having no offensive weapons around him. While the Bears made a big splash by acquiring Khalil Mack before the season, Aaron Rodgers' comeback against Chicago in Week 1 proved that a good quarterback is more important than a good linebacker. Give me Wilson and the points.

Current Standings: Current Standings: Keefer (11-6, $11,391), Grimala (7-3, $10,500), Granger (4-3, $9,225), Brewer (4-8, $6,740)
