NFL Week 1 Predictions: Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Washington Redskins 9/12/16

Will the Steelers avoid an upset tonight when they visit the Redskins at 7:10PM ET on Monday Night Football?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Redskins are 2.5-point home underdogs versus the Steelers tonight while the over/under currently sits at 49.5 points. Washington opened as a 3-point dog but the number was bet down a half-point, while the total opened at 50.5 before dropping a full point to 50.5.

Bet Tonight's Steelers vs. Redskins Matchup

On the injury front for Pittsburgh, receiver Markus Wheaton has been ruled out for tonight's game due to a shoulder injury but defensive end Cameron Heyward (ankle) said he will "definitely" play. Sammie Coates will step in for Wheaton at the No. 2 spot opposite Antonio Brown, who will be shadowed by new Washington corner Josh Norman. DeAngelo Williams will also start in place of the suspended Le'Veon Bell at running back.

For the Redskins, receiver Josh Doctson is question due to an Achilles' injury, although even if he suits up he'd be the fourth receiver on the depth chart. Matt Jones is also listed as questionable for tonight with a shoulder injury, but he's expected to play after practicing on Wednesday without his yellow non-contract jersey.

OUR PICK: Even without Bell and Wheaton, the Steelers are dangerous on offense thanks to Williams, Brown and Ben Roethlisberger. Pittsburgh has also been a great bet in September, covering in four of its last five games in the month, while also going 7-3-2 ATS in its last 12 road games. The Redskins have been a poor cover on Monday nights, losing four of five at the betting window in their last five MNF contests.
