Vikings-Redskins Line has Minnesota Favored

Vikings-Redskins

The Vikings-Redskins line has moved up to Minnesota -2 at some online betting sites.  The spread did range anywhere from -1 to -2 with most of the brick and mortar establishments offering the -1.5 compromise.  Around 65 percent of those betting the spread were backing the Vikings here.  60 percent were on the OVER 44. 

The line on this game is somewhat of a mystery, Gambling911.com believes.  The Vikings have only won 3 games while Washington sits at .500 with 5 wins thus far.  Even more intriguing, the Vikings are 0-5 Against The Spread in their last 5 road games.  Still, the betting public might be considering another stand out stat: The Redskins are just 5-13-1 ATS in their last 19 home games.

The Vikings will come into this game under a new head coach after the team fired Brad Childress this past week.  Defensive Coordinator Leslie Frazier will take over as interim Head Coach.

"The challenge I have before me is to make sure that we're going in the right direction and at the end of the year we're not a 3-13 team," Frazier said. "I don't think there's anybody on our team that can stand back and say, 'You know what? I've done my part. I'm not the reason we're 3-7.' And if we have a guy like that, that guy has been a selfish individual."

The Vikings will play a Washington team that ranks last in the NFL in yards per game allowed with 411.1.

Some important Vikings-Redskins betting trends appear below.

 

The Vikings are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a road favorite of 0.5-3.0.
