49ers vs. Redskins Prediction
Are the Redskins laying too many points to the 49ers this afternoon in Washington? Kickoff is set for 1:00PM ET.
The Odds: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Redskins are now 11-point home favorites versus the 49ers after opening as 9-point favorites. As for the total, the number hit the board at 46.5 but was bet down to 46 at the majority of online sports books.
San Francisco 49ers: The 49ers are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games versus conference opponents, are 5-2 against the number in their last seven games overall, and are 4-1 at the betting window in their last five games coming off a loss. That said, they're just 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games played in the month of October. As of this writing, 53% of the betting public is backing the 49ers at the betting window.
Washington Redskins: The Redskins are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games following an AS loss, are 5-1 against the number in their last six games coming off a straight up loss, and are 9-3 at the betting window in their last 12 games versus a team with a losing record. Where they have struggled is coming off the bye, where they are just 2-7 ATS in their last nine opportunities.
WHO COVERS: The 49ers are 0-5 but they’ve been competitive. I’m slightly worried about the fact that they’ve played two extra quarters the last two weeks but I also don’t understand why an average Redskins team is laying double-digit points to anyone. The 49ers are 5-1 against the spread in their last six conference games, have covered in five of their last seven games overall, and are 4-1 at the betting window in their last five games following a loss. On the other side, the Redskins are just 2-7 against the spread in their last 12 games coming off a bye. (Check out an advanced matchup report for this game and all of the Week 6 action here.)
