How To Bet The Green Bay Packers vs. Washington Redskins NFL Wild Card O/U Total Odds & TV Info

When: 4:40 PM ET, Sunday, January 10, 2016
Where: FedEx Field, Landover, Maryland
NFL Odds: Washington -1
O/U: 45.5

If you want to bet the Over/Under, the game’s total is sitting at 45.5 points after opening at 46.5.

Why Bet The Green Bay Packers Odds at +1

The Green Bay Packers (5-11 O/U) played Under the O/U Total a whopping 11 times this season for a variety of reasons, but mostly because they struggled to score the ball like they normally have with Aaron Rodgers under center.

The Packers went 4-4 O/U on the road this season and played Under the Total in three of their final four games. Green Bay has been held to a stunning 13 points or less in each of their last two games while scoring 16 points or less in five of their six losses.

The Under is 6-1 in Green Bay’s last seven games against their NFC counterparts and 4-1 in their last five wildcard games.

Kirk Cousins will be looking to lead his team in a playoff run.
In the NFC East, the weakest division of them all the Redskins came out on top and now they want more.

Why Bet The Washington Redskins Odds at -1

The Washington Redskins (9-7 O/U) went 3-5 O/U at home during the regular season and split thief last four home games evenly at 2-2 O/U. The Skins rank 10th in scoring (24.2 ppg) while also ranking Washington 17th in points allowed (23.7 ppg)

Another reason that Washington looks like a solid pick in this wild card contest is the fact that they’re playing excellent football right now, having won each of their final four regular season contests while covering the NFL betting line each time out.

Washington played Over the Total each time out in winning their final four regular season games while scoring 34 points or more in three of those contests and allowing at least 21 points in each.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

The Over is 11-2 in Washington’s last 13 games following an ATS win and 4-1 in their last five games following an SU win while also going 7-3 in Green Bay’s last 10 playoff road games.

I expect both of these teams to score at least 21 points while playing over the 45.5-point O/U Total with a bit of room to spare!

My Final score prediction: Green Bay 28 Washington 24
