NFL Odds: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Eagles are 6-point home underdogs versus the Redskins while the over/under total is currently sitting at 44.5 points. Washington is 8-6 overall and 4-3 on the road this season, while Philadelphia is 4-10 overall and 2-5 at home.

Line Movement: The Eagles opened as a 3-point favorite but once it was announced that Robert Griffin III was taking first-team reps at practice again, the line soared to Washington -6, where it currently sits down. As for the total, it opened at 44.5 and has stayed at that number.

Public Betting: Of the wagers currently placed on this game, 81% of NFL public bettors currently favor the Redskins. This information is subject to change leading up to kickoff, however, so make sure you click on the link provided for the most up-to-date NFL public betting numbers.

NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Philadelphia. According to latest NFL trends, the Eagles are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games in December and 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine divisional games. The Redskins, meanwhile, are 11-26-3 against the number versus a team with a losing record. Running back LeSean McCoy (concussion) is expected to be cleared to play and if he does, he changes Philadelphia’s offense tenfold. Look for a tight Washington team to play conservatively and a Philadelphia team with nothing to lose play loose. Home underdogs are usually a value and considering the home dog in this situation is getting nearly a touchdown against a divisional rival, it becomes an even bigger value. A lot of these young Eagle starters are playing for jobs next year so look for Philly to keep the game close.
