1 unit on Game Total OVER 41.5 -105 (risk 1 to return 1.95) RESULT: loss
Arizona has a losing road record and this is another long road trip to the East Coast. Defense is the main problem at #25 in the NFL in points allowed (24.4 points per game). And it's getting worse, allowing 30+ points in five of the last nine contests. They just finished a three-game homestand but they've played their worst football away from home, losing to the Lions (35-23) as a favorite, losing 34-7 at Philadelphia, 33-0 at the Rams and 31-21 at Houston. The Cardinals are 36-16 OVER the total after scoring fewer than 15 points in their previous game, as well as 38-14 OVER after getting fewer than 150 yards passing in the last contest. They make the long trip outdoors to Washington, a team coming home after playing two straight on the road and four of its last six away. QB Kirk Cousins (22 TDs, nine INTs) leads the offense that plays best at home, with a 20-10 win over the Giants in their last home game. They've also beaten the Raiders (27-10) as a dog and put 30 points up on the great Minnesota defense. The Redskins are on a 25-9 run OVER the total, 20-6 OVER versus the NFC, and 11-2 OVER after a spread loss. The wagering value is on a high-scoring tilt along with the home team to win the game. Play Washington on the moneyline and the OVER.
