Buccaneers vs. Redskins Free Pick
A pair of two-win teams will meet at 1:00PM ET today when the Washington Redskins host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at FedEx Field.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Redskins are 3.5-point home favorites versus the Bucs while the total is sitting at 43 points. While the side hasn't moved, the over/under dropped a full point down from the opening number of 44.
Tampa Bay is 2-3 on the year and 2-3 against the spread, while Washington is 2-4 straight up and 3-3 at the betting window. The Bucs are 1-1 against the spread on the road this year while the Redskins are 2-1 ATS at home.
There's not a ton of value in the side, as you'll just be taking the lesser of two evils. Do you really want to lay points with a bad Washington team? Conversely, is 3.5 points to make you feel comfortable taking Tampa, even against Washington? That said, there is some value in the total. The Bucs are allowing 29.6 points per game this season, which is the most among all 32 NFL teams. Rookie Jameis Winston has thrown seven interceptions in his first five games and faces a Redskins defense that has allowed just 222.5 passing yards per game this season (eighth-best among NFL defenses). Look for plenty of turnovers from both sides, and sloppy play overall. Take the over.
