According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Ravens are now 4-point home favorites versus the Redskins after Washington opened as a 3.5-point underdog. The total has also moved in this matchup, as it's gone from 46.5 down to 45.5.
After dropping their first two games of the season, the Redskins have rebounded to win back-to-back games. Their latest win was a 31-20 triumph over winless Cleveland, as Kirk Cousins completed 21-of-27 passes for 183 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. Running back Matt Jones also chipped in 117 yards on the ground on 22 carries with one touchdown. The over has cashed in all four of the Redskins' games this season.
The Ravens lost for the first time in 2016, falling 28-27 to the Raiders as a 3.5-point favorite. Joe Flacco completed 32-of-52 pass attempts for 298 yards with one touchdown, while Terrance West gave life to Baltimore's running game by rushing for 113 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries. Steve Smith also had a big game in the loss, catching eight-of-11 targets for 111 yards with one score.
OUR PICK: Oddsmakers have seemingly inflated the total for this matchup given how Washington has hit the over in four consecutive games. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams and 5-2 in the Ravens' last seven home games. The under is also 21-10 in Baltimore's last 31 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in its previous game and is a perfect 8-0 in Washington's last eight games in Week 5.
