Redskins vs. Cardinals Pick
Is the total set too high in Sunday’s matchup between the Redskins and Cardinals at 4:25PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Cardinals are 2.5-point home favorites versus the Redskins while the over/under currently sits at 49 points. While the point spread hasn’t moved, the total has dropped from 50.5 down to 49.
REDSKINS KEY TRENDS: The Redskins are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall, are 7-1 in their last eight road games and are 5-1 in their last five games versus NFC opponents. They’re also 7-1 against the number in their last eight games when taking on an opponent with a losing record and are a perfect 5-0 at the betting window in their last five games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
CARDINALS KEY TRENDS: The Cardinals are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games in Week 13 and are 4-1 against the number in their last five games in December. That said, they’re just 3-10 against the spread in their last 13 home games, are 0-4 at the betting window in their last four games versus an opponent with a winning record and are 0-6 ATS in their last six games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.
OUR PREDICTION: The under is just 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams and is 8-3 in the Redskins’ last 11 games in Week 13. Washington can score and has often scored at will of late, but Arizona continues to have issues offensively. The under is 11-1 in the Cardinals’ last 12 home games, is 4-1 in their last five games in December and is 5-0 in their last five home games versus a team with a winning road record. The Cardinals need to rely on David Johnson and their defense to protect a broken down Carson Palmer who is getting pummeled on a weekly basis because of his injury-plagued offensive line. That has led to some low-scoring games at home and I fully expect Sunday’s matchup with Washington to be low-scoring as well in Arizona.
