Redskins vs. Jets Free Pick
Don't be fooled by the Redskins nearly pulling off an upset in Atlanta last week: Washington should struggle to cover the spread versus the Jets today at 1:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Jets are 7-point home favorites versus the Redskins while the total for today's game is currently sitting at 40.5 points. Washington is 2-3 overall and 3-2 against the spread, while New York is 3-1 straight up and 3-1 at the betting window.
The Redskins nearly pulled off an impressive upset over the Falcons in Week 5 but they're banged up heading into today's game. Left tackle Trent Williams (spine) and left guard Kory Lichtensteiger (shoulder, finger) missed practice this week and receiver DeSean Jackson took himself out of practice on Thursday after feeling a "twinge" chasing down a deep ball. Rookie running back Matt Jones (toe) was also limited this week and tight end Jordan Reed was held out due to a concussion.
Through five weeks the Jets have had one of the most efficient defenses in all of football. Kirk Cousins will have issues trying to move the ball against this New York defense, especially with several pieces either limited or out around him. The Jets are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games overall while the Redskins are just 1-5 ATS in their last six games coming off an ATS win.
