NFL Free Pick: WAS/BAL
The Sunday Night Football matchup pits two teams in the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens that are fighting for playoff berths in their respective conferences.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Ravens -5 point spread favorite. The over/under for this game has been set at 35.5 total points.
Key Trend: Baltimore is 6-1 against the spread in its last seven games and 5-1 against the spread in its last six games at home. The Redskins are just 1-5-1 against the spread in their last seven games, while the total has gone under in seven of Washington’s last eight games at home.
Key Stat: The Ravens are averaging 24.3 points a game and allowing just 15.8 points per game. Washington, meanwhile, is averaging only 17.3 points per game and allowing 18.5
Game Outlook: The Ravens have better stats, although this is way too many points to give up if you’re taking Baltimore. Washington is in a dog-fight for a playoff spot in the NFC and the five points are a gift. They probably won’t win outright, but their defense is good enough to keep them in the game, although they need to find a way to stop the excellent Raven running game. Expect a tough, close contest and a Washington cover.
