Betting on the New England Patriots (4-0)

The Patriots are not all about Tom Brady. In fact, Brady is taking a backseat to the Patriots’ defense that has done nothing but lock up opponents this season. The Pats are incredibly tough defensively. They are No. 1 in the NFL with 6.8 points allowed per game and also tops in the league with just 243.0 total yards surrendered per contest. That’s the kind of defense that should make grown men cry, including the Redskins, who aren’t even sure what to do on offense. The Patriots’ most recent victims were the Buffalo Bills in a 16-10 road win. Brady passed for just 150 yards without a touchdown on 18-of-39 completions. Brady should find more success in Week 5 against the Redskins’ defense that’s ranked 31st in the league with 29.5 points allowed per game.

The under is 3-1 in the Patriots’ lsat four games.

Betting on the Washington Redskins (0-4)

The Redskins need to make up their mind with regards to what they are supposed to do under center. Case Keenum, Colt McCoy, and Dwayne Haskins are the three options for the Redskins, and none of them inspire much confidence. Keenum didn’t help his case by passing for 37 yards and an interception on 6-of-11 completions in last week’s 24-3 road loss to the New York Giants. Haskins stepped in and threw three interceptions. McCoy is ready to play, but head coach Jay Gruden has gone on record saying that he’s uncertain who to start. What’s sure about the Redskins is that the total has gone under in four of their last five home games.

The Redskins are averaging 16.5 points and 296.2 yards per game. They are fourth in the league in passing play percentage, but might have to rely on their ground attack more with the issues they’re having at the QB position.

The over is 3-1 in the Redskins’ last four games overall.

Writer’s Prediction

The Patriots win, 31-13.
