Betting on the Washington Redskins (0-5)
Losing to the New England Patriots, 33-7, last Sunday did not spell the end of the world for the Redskins, but it meant the end of Jay Gruden’s tenure in Washington as the team’s head coach. Gruden was fired by the Redskins shortly after the Patriots game, and they will now be temporarily helmed by Bill Callahan, who was promoted from an assistant coach gig to an interim head coach role. The Redskins are going nowhere. It’s probably best for them to start starting rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins than continue squeezing anything out of Colt McCoy, who’s clearly not the answer and will never be to the franchise’s malaise. One bright spot this season for the Redskins is wide receiver Terry McLaurin, who has emerged as the best downfield threat for Washington. Up against a flimsy Miami defense, he should be able to come up with good numbers, regardless of which quarterback Washington uses.
The under is 2-0 in the Redskins’ last two games.
Betting on the Miami Dolphins (0-4)
The Dolphins are definitely all in for Tua Tagovailoa – or whoever they want to pick in next year’s draft as the No. 1 overall selection. That being said, the Dolphins are playing better of late. After giving up 102 points in the first two weeks of the season, they have managed to limit their next two opponents down to only 61 points. Those are not good numbers, but an improvement is still an improvement. In their last game before heading into a Week 5 bye, the Dolphins suffered a 30-10 loss at home to the Los Angeles Chargers. Josh Rosen passed for 180 yards and a touchdown with an interception on 17-for-24 completions, while running back Kenyan Drake had 44 rushing yards on nine carries. The Dolphins have talent downfield in DeVante Parker and Preston Williams, but Rosen needs to be better protected. The Dolphins are 30th overall in offensive QB sacked percentage with an 11.69 percent clip.
The Dolphins are 5-5 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 home games. Washington’s defense is just as bad as Miami’s though, so expect Rosen to have more freedom and time in the pocket.
The Redskins win, 21-20.
