Rams vs. Redskins Free Pick
The Redskins will try to avoid falling to 0-2 on the season but it'll be difficult facing a formidable Rams' defense today at 1:00PM ET.
Kirk Cousins completed 21-of-31 passes for 195 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in the Redskins' Week 1 loss to the Dolphins. Miami's front seven is talented but Cousins and Washington's offensive line will receive an even stiffer test today against Aaron Donald, Robert Quinn and Chris Long.
The Rams sacked Russell Wilson six times last week and without DeSean Jackson (hamstring) to throw to, Cousins will be running for his life all day. While this is a letdown spot for the Rams (especially coming off a close, emotionally victory against divisional rival Seattle), the Redskins won't be able to overcome a talent deficiency when they line up on offense.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Redskins are 3-point home underdogs to the Rams today after opening as a 3-point dog. The total currently sits at 41 points after opening at 42.
The Rams are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games versus the Redskins and 4-1 ATS in their last five trips to D.C., where they routed Washington 24-0 last season.
