Is GB ready for Jordan Reed?
Jordan Reed was one of the top tight ends in the NFL this season. Will he build off that by leading the Washington Redskins over the Green Bay Packers in the playoffs?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Washington is a slight favorite at home in this game, as the Redskins are getting odds of -1 point against the Packers. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 45.5 points. These two meet today at 4:40PM ET on FOX.
Reed had a breakout year in 2015, as the third-year TE caught 87 passes for 952 yards with 11 touchdowns. He nearly doubled his career-high in yards and receptions while besting his career-high in touchdowns by 8. He was the leading receiver for the Redskins (9-7, 9-7 ATS) this season and is arguably their top skill-position player. He meets up with the Packers (10-6, 9-7 ATS) today and their sixth-ranked pass defense that is allowing just 227.6 yards per contest.
Oddsmakers have set Reed’s over/under for receptions in this game at 6 and his over/under for receiving yards at 69.5. These two didn’t meet during the season, but Reed has nine games this year with at least 6 receptions. He also has seven games with at least 70 receiving yards. Reed actually had 50 of his 87 receptions at home to go along with 498 yards and seven touchdowns. This season, Green Bay has given up 75 receptions for 810 yards and seven scores to opposing TEs. They have held TS to 40 yards or less in their last six games
