Bet on Vikings vs. Redskins

After a 5-0 start and an appearance of being a Super Bowl contender, Minnesota has now dropped three straight and looked like anything but a playoff team. The Vikings have scored just 36 points in those three games, failing to cover in any of them to drop to 5-3 against the spread. The offense has been the issue for this team as the defense is giving up just 15.8 points and 318.5 yards per game. The unit also has 21 sacks with 17 turnovers. Offensively, Minnesota is averaging just 19.4 points and 316.5 yards per game. They have the league’s worst rushing attack at just 72.6 yards per game. Matt Asiata has emerged as the leading rusher with 227 yards. Sam Bradford has thrown for 1,715 yards with 9 touchdowns and 1 interception, but has been sacked 21 times.

Washington is coming off a bye week, but played the Bengals to a 27-27 tie the week prior in London. The Redskins are now 4-3-1 on the season and 5-3 against the spread, going 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games. Washington has a powerful offense that is averaging 422 yards per game, despite putting up just 23.3 points per game. Kirk Cousins has thrown for 2,454 yards and 12 touchdowns, but also has 7 interceptions. He is likely to be without deep threat Desean Jackson, who is doubtful because of a shoulder injury. Defensively, Washington is giving up 23.6 points and 386.8 yards per game. They are giving up 263 passing yards per contest.

Minnesota is a great defensive team, but hurting in the secondary. Both Captain Munerlyn and Marcus Sherels are out with injuries, which should allow Cousins and the Redskins to get some big plays down the field. Minnesota will likely continue to struggle on offense without a run game or a consistent offensive line. Washington has 22 sacks this year and can get to the quarterback. Look for the Redskins to disrupt the Minnesota offense enough and score just enough on the defense to get a win at home.
