Broncos vs. Redskins Pick
Who Oddsmakers Like: Washington. The Redskins are listed as a 3.5-point favorite by sports book Bovada.lv, while the over-under sits at 40.5 points. Washington opened as a 4-point favorite. The total has seen a bigger drop as it opened at 42 points.
Who the Public Likes: Washington. At 65 percent, the public is slamming the favorite with the majority of its bets.
Who the Trends Like: Denver is 1-8 ATS in its last nine games played on grass. Denver is also 1-8 ATS in its last nine games on the road. Washington is 0-4 ATS in its last four games after a straight up win. Washington is 5-0 ATS in its last five games played in Week 16.
Who We Like: It seems as though the Redskins haven't dealt with success very well as evidenced by losing their last four games against the spread after a straight up win. Washington has a huge injury report this season and they've added a couple of big games this week in running back Samaje Perine and wide receiver Jameson Crowder, both of whom are questionable. If one or both are out or even limited, the Washington offense will sputter. Denver should be able to run the ball today and have at least as good of a wide receiver group if not better, although Emmanuel Sanders hasn't been the same since he began playing injured. Look for another big effort out of a revitalied Broncos defense. I'm going with the road team to cover here.
