Why Bet on the Washington Redskins?

The Redskins had their modest two-game winning streak snapped in their hard-fought 31-26 loss to red-hot Dallas last weekend but have one of the most explosive offenses in the league this season.

The Skins are putting up a 25.4 point per game this season to rank ninth in scoring as Cousins has completed an incendiary 68.4 percent of his passes this season for 3,540 yards with 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions

Blossoming wide receiver Jamison Crowder and veteran wideout Pierre Garcon have combined for 1,361 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while gifted tight end Jordan Reed has hauled in a team-high 59 passes. Defensively, Washington is allowing 24.0 points per game to rank an uninspiring 18th in points allowed.

 

Why Bet on the Arizona Cardinals?

The Cardinals have lost two straight and three of their last four games including their humbling 38-19 loss to Atlanta this past weekend while never coming close to covering the spread as a 4-point underdog.

Arizona is averaging a modest 22.7 points per game this season to rank 19th in scoring as veteran signal-caller Carson Palmer has completed a respectable 60.9 percent of his passes for 2,931 yards with 15 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

Future Hall of Fame wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and dual-threat running back David Johnson have combined for 1,415 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Johnson has rushed for a team-high 921 yards and 10 touchdowns. Defensively, Arizona is limiting the opposition to just 20.7 points per game to rank a solid 11th in points allowed.

Analysis: Maybe it’s me, but right now, I’m thinking veteran quarterback Carson Palmer is just about done being a starting quarterback in the NFL. The Cardinals and Palmer have both been wildly inconsistent this season and now, they’re taking on a Washington Redskins team that is as offensively explosive as any team in the league.

While Washington has gone 7-1 ATS in their last eight road dates and 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall, Arizona is a dismal 3-10 ATS in their last 13 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last five games overall. Washington gets the win by simply outscoring Arizona in this one.
