Redskins vs. Lions Spread

Gambling911.com has observed that there were major fluctuations in the Redskins vs. Lions spread with a line move of 3 points in Detroit’s favor.  This one opened at Lions as a PICK and has since moved to -3 at some online sportsbooks as well as the Vegas books.  BetUS.com was holding at Detroit -2.5.  Around 70 percent of the betting action was on Washington in this game.

The Redskins come into this game with a 4-3 record while Detroit is a lousy 1-5.  The Lions have been plagued by injuries in recent weeks.

Last week, Washington beat Chicago by a score of 17-14. DeAngelo Hall became just the third player since 1970 with four interceptions and one returned for a touchdown in a single game.

"It's kind of mind blowing," he said. "I had my mom, my aunt, and my two cousins in the stands. The first ball went to my mom, the second ball went to my aunt and the next thing you knew everybody had a ball."

Washington has already managed to equal its win total from last year.

Detroit had its bye last week.  They lost 20-28 to the New York Giants in Week 6.

The Lions have managed to win Against The Spread 5 out of 6 times so far this season despite the 1-5 Straight Up record, which demonstrates how tough they have played in nearly all of their games.

While Detroit won last year, Washington is 3-1 in this series over the last 4 games, both Straight Up and Against The Spread.

The Redskins are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 road games. Detroit is 6-13 ATS in their last 19 home games.(edge: Redskins)

The Redskins are 4-11-1 ATS in their last 16 games on fieldturf.

Washington is 6-18-3 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.  The Lions are 4-0 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. (edge: Lions)

The Lions are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. NFC.

While many of you will be betting on the spread in this game, consider the UNDER 44. 7 of 8 games in this series have gone UNDER THE TOTAL since 1992. (edge: UNDER)
