Washington Redskins 2017 NFL Free Picks and Win/Loss Prediction

 

 

Washington Redskins 2017 Win Total Odds 7.5

Week 1

Eagles at Redskins (-3)

The Skins swept the Birds a year ago and will make it three straight against their longtime division rivals by holding it down in their home opener.

Week 2

Redskins (-2) at Rams

Kirk Cousins will put at least 30 points on the board to beat the rebuilding Rams going away.

Week 3

Raiders (-1) at Redskins

I’m thinking, Oakland 31 Redskins 27 in this Week 3 Inter-conference clash.

Week 4

Redskins at Chiefs (-5)

The Skins face their second straight AFC West opponent – and suffer their second straight loss because of it.

Week 5

BYE

Week 6

49ers at Redskins (-8)

New 49ers head coach mike Shanahan knows Kirk Cousins very well, but he doesn’t quite have the personnel to stop him just yet.

Week 7

Redskins at Eagles (-2.5)

Philly gets some revenge after dropping three straight against the Redskins.

Week 8

Cowboys (-2.5) at Redskins

After getting swept by the Cowboys last season, Washington gets some revenge as part of a regular season split with their longtime NFC East division rivals.

Week 9

Redskins at Seahawks (-8)

Kirk Cousins gets picked off at least twice by Seattle’s lockdown defense as Washington falls in the great Northwest.

Week 10

Vikings at Redskins (-1.5)

The Vikings have a powerful defense, but not enough offense to keep up with Cousins and company. Washington gets the narrow home win.

Week 11

Redskins at Saints (-2.5)

Simply put, Drew Brees out-guns Kirk Cousins and the Saints win in a high-scoring shootout.

Week 12

Giants at Redskins (-1)

Washington gets a small measure of revenge against New York after getting swept by the G-Men a year ago.

Week 13

Redskins at Cowboys (-7)

Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott lead Dallas to the big home win in week 13 to extract some revenge for their Week 8 loss against the Skins.

I like Philip Rivers to put just a few more points on the board than Kirk Cousins to lead the Bolts to the home win in a thriller.

Week 14

Redskins at Chargers (-1.5)

The Redskins will put up a great effort in this Week 14 Inter-conference clash, but I like Philip Rivers to put just a few more points on the board than Kirk Cousins to lead the Bolts to the home win in a thriller.

Week 15

Cardinals at Redskins (-2)

Arizona’s defense and a healthy dose of David Johnson – will be too much for the Skins to overcome, even at home in this Week 15 NFC showdown.

Week 16

Broncos at Redskins (-1)

The Skins will fall again at home for the second straight week because of their opponent’s superior defense and a couple of costly Kirk Cousins turnovers.

Week 17

Redskins at Giants

The Giants will get some revenge for their Week 12 road loss against Washington after splitting with their division rivals a year ago.

Just like the rest of their NFC East division rivals, Washington has a treacherous schedule looming in 2017.

I’ve got the Redskins finishing at 7-9 because of their difficult schedule in 2017, but they should be in contention to win the NFC East for the vast majority of the regular season.

Play the Under 7.5 total wins, although I’ll admit, it’s going to be very close.
