Why Bet On Washington at +3?
There’ only one reason to back the Redskins in this contest and it’s because Washington is going to be completely and utterly desperate in this contest. The Skins come into this contest off a dismal 31-15 loss to Chicago on Monday night as quarterback Case Keenum passed for 332 yards and two touchdowns. The bad news is that the veteran signal-caller also tossed three interceptions in the loss while allowing Chicago’s Mitch Trubisky to toss three TD passes. Washington has given up at least 31 points in their trio of losses against Philly, Dallas and Chicago.

Redskins vs Giants Expert Analysis and Prediction
I’m going to get right to the point by saying that Case Keenum is completely mediocre in every sense of the word and shouldn’t be starting for any NFL franchise. Conversely, the sky is the limit for New York’s Daniel Jones, although I’m not yet anointing him the next coming of Joe Montana like some media members are already doing after one start.
While Washington has gone 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games, the Skins are also an uninspiring 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against their NFC East division rivals and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games against their NFC counterparts. On the flip side of the coin, the Giants are an encouraging 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games against their NFC counterparts and 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 Week 4 games. The G-Men are feeling good right now and playing at home against a division rival. I like Daniel Jones and the Giants to win and narrowly cover the chalk in this one!
