Washington is 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games following a loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in November while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. Detroit is 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record. Washington is 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
I’m done with trying to figure out what we’re going to get from Detroit on a game-to-game basis and to make things worse, this is a Detroit team with a defensive head coach that’s allowed at least 34 points in each of their last four losses and have scored more than 26 points 3 times in eight games this season. There’s also the elephant in the room for the Lions that Matthew Stafford is banged up, so getting to that point total may prove even more difficult. Washington’s had issues all season long, but this team is still only one game back in the division race and in the NFC East this season, it’s looking more and more possible that a 5-6 win team could end up making the playoffs. I think this game just means more to Washington and I envision this being a field goal game either way so at this number, I’ll take Washington and the points.
