The Washington Redskins are a disappointing last place in the NFC East as they continue to search for answers. The Redskins offense is averaging 19.7 points and 365.2 yards per game and hey are currently led by QB Robert Griffin III who has completed 69.7 percent of his passes with two touchdowns and three interceptions. Alfred Morris has rushed for 826 yards and seven touchdowns and Pierre Garcon has 46 catches and DeSean Jackson has 42 catches. The Redskins defense is allowing 24.8 points and 331 yards per game and they are minus nine in turnover ratio. Keenan Robinson has 91 tackles, Ryan Clark has 60 tackles, and Ryan Kerrigan has 8.5 sacks. The Redskins will probably go back to the drawing board this offseason so many of their players will be playing for jobs.
Indianapolis is 17-4 against the spread against a team with a losing record, 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games, and 19-7 against the spread in their last 26 home games. Washington is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games, 1-5 against the spread following a loss, and 2-9 against the spread following a a game that they covered the point spread. The home team is 3-1-1 against the spread in the last five meetings of these two.
I expect both teams to be able to move the ball and for that reason I like the over with my free pick. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
