Redskins vs. Seahawks Total Pick
Will the Redskins and Seahawks light up the scoreboard on Sunday when the two teams meet at 4:05PM ET?
Matchup: Redskins (3-4) at Seahawks (5-2)
TV: FOX, 4:05 p.m. ET
Line: Seahawks -7 (45)
ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Seahawks are 7-point home favorites to beat the Redskins, who opened as 6-point road underdogs. As for the total, the number hit the board at 45 and that's where it currently sits.
PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, 54% of tickets are on the Seahawks to cover the point spread.
KEY TRENDS: The road team is 3-0-1 against the spread in the last four meetings between these two teams. That said, the favorite is 5-1-1 against the number in the last seven games in this series and the Redskins are just 1-4-1 at the betting window in their last six games versus the Seahawks overall.
OUR PREDICTION: The over is 11-1 in the Redskins' last 12 games coming off an ATS loss, is 13-3 in their last 16 games coming off a straight up loss, and has cashed in 22 of their last 28 games overall. On the other side, the over is 4-0 in the Seahawks' last four games played in Week 9 and 5-2 in their last seven games played in the month of November.
Seattle's defense looked rough a week ago trying to defend Deshaun Watson and the Texans and will be without Earl Thomas (hamstring) this Sunday when it takes on the Redskins. Granted, Washington is banged-up along its offensive line and that'll be an issue, but the Redskins will still contribute enough points to push the combined score over. Plus, with the way Russell Wilson is playing, the Seahawks may put up 40 on their own.
