Washington at Kansas City Week 4 NFL Spread & Pick for MNF

Washington at Kansas City Week 4 NFL Spread & Pick for MNF

Written by on September 29, 2017

Two embattled QB’s will go head to head on Monday Night Football when the Washington Redskins go into Kansas City to face the NFL spread favorites Chiefs. In Washington, QB Kirk Cousins has been outstanding for his team in recent seasons, yet they refuse to sign him to a long-term deal, choosing instead to slap him with the franchise tag for the second straight year. In Kansas City, Alex Smith has been one of the most consistent QB’s in the league, yet the Chiefs went out and traded up to get Patrick Mahomes in the first round of the draft. The quarterback position is undoubtedly the most important on any football team. A mediocre team can become very good with the addition of a great QB, while a good team can become mediocre when a lesser QB goes under center. As you might expect, QB’s often get too much credit when their teams win, but they are also subject to too much of the blames when the losses start piling up. This season may dictate the futures of Cousins and Smith, but for now, it’s all about getting another W on Monday Night, so let’s check out who offers the best value.

Why the Redskins should be your NFL Spread Pick?

The Washington Redskins started the season with a disappointing loss to the Philadelphia Eagles but responded nicely by winning their next two games against a pair of very good teams. Week 2 saw them take out the LA Rams, but it was last week that was perhaps their best performance of the season so far in a 27-10 win over the Oakland Raiders. The fact that they have been handed such a tough schedule to start the season, with this being their 4th straight game as the underdog, and are still 2-1 is a sign that this Redskins team might well be the real deal. Their stock could really rise if they can go into Arrowhead Stadium and take out one of only two undefeated teams in the NFL. It’s a big task, especially when you consider that the Chiefs have won the last 5 meetings against the Redskins. Washington has thrived on the road, going 8-3-1 SU in their last 12 games away from home, and are an impressive 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. This is not a team to be taken lightly.

Why the Chiefs should be your NFL Spread Pick?

We all had an idea that the Kansas City Chiefs would be good this season, but I’m not sure anyone really predicted how good they would be. They were quick to get people on their side, heading into New England in Week 1 and crushing the Patriots 42-27. That win was outstanding, and while the two that came after it was perhaps not as dominating, they were victories that showed this team to be as well-rounded and balanced as it gets. Chiefs are huge MNF Betting favorites. The Patriots are still going to get the majority of the love in the AFC, but the Chiefs are quickly proving that they may well be the team to beat in this conference. Kansas City has always been good at Arrowhead, and are 13-3 SU in their last 16 home games. That said, they are not always a good bet ATS, going just 4-9 in their last 13 home tilts.

Expert NFL Spread Pick and Final Score Prediction

This is the type of match-up that you always hope for in a Monday night game, as it features two very good teams with a shot at getting the win. I think the Redskins will keep it close, but KC will pull out the win, and we will go slightly OVER. Score: Washington Redskins 24 – Kansas City Chiefs 27
