Redskins vs. Patriots Free Pick
The Redskins will have their hands full today when they visit Foxboro and the Patriots at 1:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Patriots are 14-point home favorites versus the Redskins while the total currently sits at 52 points after opening at 52.5.
Washington enters play with a 3-4 record and is just 3-4 against the spread as well, while New England is a perfect 7-0 straight up and 4-2 at the betting window after successfully covering in a win last Thursday night over the Dolphins.
The Redskins are well-rested coming off their bye but the Patriots also received extra rest last week after playing the Dolphins on Thursday night football. While no team has been able to slow down New England's high-powered offense, Washington has been underrated defensively this year. The only way the Redskins are going to spring the upset is if they control the ball for long stretches of the game and keep Tom Brady and Co. off the field. A similar strategy nearly worked for Kansas State on Thursday night when the Wildcats fell to high-powered Baylor 31-24 in Manhattan. Look for the combined score to fall short of the 52-point total.
