View Current NFL Odds

Washington is 0-2 on the season, 0-1 at home and 0-2 against the spread. Detroit is 1-1 on the season, 1-0 at home and 1-1 against the spread. Detroit has won two straight over Washington, but both those games were at home.

Trends show that the home team is 8-2 against the spread in the last 10 games in this series and the Lions are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 trips to Washington. These two have hit the under in 6 of their last 9 meetings.

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Washington is the slim favorite at home, as the Redskins have odds of -1 point against the Lions. The over/under total for the game has been set at 49 points (View Matchup). The opening odds for this game were even, but the spread has moved over to the side of the Redskins in the past few days. The over/under total opened at 48 points. It hit a peak of 49.5 before falling back to 49.

The Redskins have gotten off to slow starts in both games this season, falling behind by over 20 points in each game before making a late push to make a game of it. The defense currently ranks last in rushing yards allowed at 201 per game and the whole unit is giving up 35.5 points and 511.5 yards per game. Offensively, Robert Griffin III has decent numbers, as he has thrown for 649 yards and five touchdowns, but most of those numbers have come in mop-up duty. Alfred Morris has rushed for 152 yards and a touchdown through two games.

Detroit is coming off a 25-21 loss at Arizona last week. The Lions held an 8-point lead in the second half, but couldn’t hold on for the victory. The Lions are giving up 24.5 points and 339 yards per game on the defense while the offense is posting 27.5 points and 395.5 yards per game. Reggie Bush has been a big part of the offense thus far, as he has 115 rushing yards and 145 receiving yards, but he is questionable for this game with a knee injury. Matthew Stafford has thrown for 635 yards with four touchdowns and one interception through two games.

Bet on NFL Week 3 Odds

In terms of Injuries, Detroit defensive tackle Nick Fairley is questionable for the game with a shoulder injury while tackle Jason Fox is questionable with an injured groin. Washington safety Brandon Meriweather is questionable due to a concussion and kicker Kai Forbath is questionable with a groin injury.

The Public Bets for this game are currently backing Detroit, as the Lions are getting 55% of the wagers with odds of +1 point at Washington on Sunday.
