PRE SEASON SERVICE PLAYS
PRE SEASON SERVICE PLAYS
Indianapolis Colts vs. Washington Redskins
While the NFL pre season will generally have it's spots with which we can find an edge and jump in for a play or two, this game isn't one of them. Certainly, it would be nice for the Redskins to come away with a big win on the day two of it's greats are honored, Darrell Green and Art Monk. It would seem to be a good spot for them as well, taking on a Colts team and Tony Dungy, who simply doesn't care about winning in the pre season. Particularly in the first week. While Jim Zorn starts his reign as the Skins top dog, and hey, what new coach doesn't want to start off with a win. But let's not forget, this is already reflected in the line as the Skins opened -5 and have been bet up to -6. Let's also not forget that the Skins aren't dressing many of their vets. Sure, the Vets wouldn't play more than a few series anyways, but now, they won't play at all. So we'll make a small play here on the under for the following reasons. One, scoring tends to be low in the NFL pre season to begin with. Lot's of new plays to run, lots of experimenting, and more of a focus on getting a good look at players rather than putting the ball in the end zone. The Skins have scored more than 17 points in a pre season game just once in 3 years. Lastly, so far, the public is betting this game over. So, why not buck the public here for the first time this year. Just a lean though, to get things started. There will be far better opportunities to come.

Play: 1 * WASHINGTON REDSKINS -6
After looking very closely at the Depth Charts for this Match up the Skins are Absolutely loaded .At some positions 3 Deep .The Only position that the Colts really go 2 Deep in with some talent is at their slot position with Jacob Tamme from Kentucky .He holds the Wildcat record for most receiving yards .He will also see some time at tight end . Other than that the Skins hold all the edges in this one with almost every pertinent position backed up by a player that has previous NFL experience .Even with Clinton Portis and Jason Taylor sitting this one out the Skins will still control this one on Defense as their secondary might be the best in the NFL .On the Offensive side I don't expect to see much of Jason Cambell at QB , but I'll take Colt Brennan over anyone the Colts have backing up Manning .I would say James Thrash and Devin Thomas are two pretty good backups at wideout and the Skins will have a field day passing against a weak 2nd and 3rd string secondary for the Colts .This line should be 10 + and I'll gladly lay the 6 and cash this ticket .
