Packers vs. Redskins Pick
Will the Packers and Redskins score enough points Sunday night to cash the over for bettors at 8:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Redskins are 3-point home favorites versus the Packers after opening as a 2.5-point favorite. As for the total, the number hit the board at 51 and has been bet down to 49.5 at the majority of online and Vegas sports books.
PACKERS KEY TRENDS: The Packers have covered the spread in seven of their last 10 road games and are 3-1-1 at the betting window in their last five games versus NFC opponents. That said, they’re just 1-6 against the number in their last seven games in November and are winless at 0-5 at the betting window in their last five games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game.
REDSKINS KEY TRENDS: The Redskins have covered the spread in six of their last seven games 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 contest. They’re also 4-1 against the spread in their last five games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous contest.
OUR PREDICTION: The Packers are likely to get Clay Matthews (hamstring/probable) back on Sunday but their secondary remains a mess because of injuries. Quinten Rollins (groin), Micah Hyde (shoulder) and Morgan Burnett (undisclosed) are all questionable, which could lead to another big passing day for Kirk Cousins. The Packers also can’t run the ball offensively, which puts more onus on Aaron Rodgers and the passing game to pick up yards both downfield and in the short game to move the chains. The over is 5-1 in the Packers’ last six games following a loss and is a perfect 7-0 in the Redskins’ last seven home games.
