Betting on the Detroit Lions (3-6-1)
The Lions will have to survive without quarterback Matt Stafford and with Jeff Driskel under center. The veteran signal-caller is currently labelled as week-to-week due to a back issue that has also forced him to miss last week’s 35-27 home loss to the Dallas Cowboys. That is now the third-straight loss for the Lions, who are also working with a backfield that barely resembles the composition it had back in Week 1. With Kerryon Johnson done for the season, the rushing duty is now being shared by Bo Scarbrough, J.D. McKissic, and Ty Johnson. But it’s the former Alabama Crimson Tide star that is likely to come away with most of the load in the rushing attack, as Scarbrough proved he’s up to the challenge when he rushed for 55 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries against the Cowboys.
The Lions, who are averaging 24.4 points per game, are 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last five meetings with Washington.
Betting on the Washington Redskins (1-9)
Rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins was seen pleading to his offensive linemen, asking them how he can help their unit in last week’s home game against the New York Jets. Whatever he said, it looked as though it fell on deaf ears, as he was whacked repeatedly in the pocket, taking six sacks for a loss of 43 yards in a 34-17 loss to the Jets. Haskins did throw for two touchdowns but had an interception and converted just 19 of 35 pass attempts. Haskins has a long way to go to be the quarterback the Redskins envisioned him to be, and that’s not entirely up to him, as the talent around him is simply not on par with what the stronger teams in the NFL have. That being said, the Redskins can still rely on Adrian Peterson, who can shine from time to time. The future Hall of Famer can bounce back from a 25-yard rushing effort in the Jets game when he takes on Detroit’s run defense that is only 24th in the NFL.
The Redskins are 13-1 straight up (SU) in their last 14 home games against Detroit.
The Lions win, 23-16.
