Los Angeles Chargers vs. Washington Redskins
Madden20 Sim: Tuesday, June 16, 2020 at 8:00 pm
The Line: Washington Redskins +6.5 -- Over/Under: 43.5
The Los Angeles Chargers and Washington Redskins meet Tuesday night in a Madden20 NFL simulation game.
The Los Angeles Chargers are a really underrated team in the Madden game, as they have 11 different players ranked 81 or better overall. Wide receiver Keenan Allen, defensive end Joey Bosa and cornerback Casey Hayward are the highest rated players in the 90s, while defensive end Melvin Ingram and safety Derwin James come in at 88 overall. The Chargers have a relentless pass rush in this game and a strong front seven overall that limits big plays and forces the opposing offense to work hard for everything. Quarterback Philip Rivers is rated 84 overall and has an 88 awareness rating, so he’s not going to make the boneheaded play often that you see in these simulation games. The Los Angeles Chargers have a lot to offer in Madden and are a balanced team that you can make money on during these simulations.
The Washington Redskins have one player ranked in the 90s, and that’s left tackle Trent Williams who brings in a 92 overall rating and a 90 awareness rating. Right guard Brandon Scherff has an 88 overall rating, giving the Redskins an above-average offensive line in Madden20. As for the skill positions, the Redskins turn to tight end Jordan Reed who has an 84 overall rating and wide receiver Terry Mclaurin who is 81 overall. Quarterback, the Redskins are led by Dwayne Haskins who is 70 overall with a 70 awareness rating and 76 speed rating. The Washington Redskins are one of those teams in this game you have to play really conservative with, as they don’t have the horses on either side of the ball to really flip a game. Rely on defense and ground game and hope Haskins doesn’t make the turnover that kills your bet.
I'm not a fan of laying a lot of chalk in these simulations, as you're putting a lot of faith in the computer at that point. However, the Los Angeles Chargers are one of the better teams in this game and a team that's made us a lot of money in the past. The Washington Redskins don't have much going for them and don't have the horses offensively to respond if the Chargers play to their potential.
I have no choice but to eat the touchdown with the Los Angeles Chargers.
