Washington will look to bounce back from a disappointing 33-27 setback to the Philadelphia Eagles as four-point home favorites on Monday Night Football, while going OVER the betting total of 52. Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III threw a career-high 49 passes in that affair, and gained just 24 yards on the ground. “You move on from it,” commented Griffin III afterwards. “I’ve got to be accountable.” The other side of the football could be at full strength in Week 2, as outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and safety Brandon Meriweather are expected to play. Washington is 36-17 ATS as road underdogs of 3.5 to 7 points since 1992, which is important to consider when making your NFL expert picks Sunday.
The Redskins led the NFL in averaging 169.3 rushing yards per game a season ago, but were held to just 74 against the Eagles. Washington second-year running back Alfred Morris carried the ball 12 times for 45 yards and a touchdown, as he’ll need Griffin III to play at a higher level to be successful.
Green Bay has won 20 of its last 21 regular-season games at Lambeau Field, as it heads home after a disappointing 34-28 setback to the San Francisco 49ers as five-point road underdogs. The Packers hold a 17-13-1 edge in the all-time series against the Redskins, including wins in four of the last five meetings. The franchise has won five of seven home openers under head coach Mike McCarthy, which can’t be ignored when looking over the NFL betting lines. Green Bay is 4-1 ATS as home favorites of 3.5 to 7 points since 2011, with the UNDER going 3-2 in that situation.
The Packers have averaged 31.8 points per game at home since 2009, which is just behind the New England Patriots (32.7) in that particular category. Green Bay has compiled a 9-5 record in September since 2009, which is tied for fifth with the Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles in that situation. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has completed 99 of 151 passes for 1,331 yards and 13 touchdowns with a single interception in his last four regular-season games.
Sports bettors will likely back the Redskins due to their 7-2 ATS mark in their last nine overall games.
