Washington at Philadelphia

2 units on Washington +7 (-115) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
This line is +7 at some books and +6.5 at others. We recommend you get it at 7 even if that means at your book you have to buy a half point. Let's face it. The Eagles didn't look good last week. They struggled offensively and McNabb was rusty. He was 15 for 33 for 184 yards. The Eagles coughed up a win to Green Bay with a key fumble. The Eagles remain susceptible to the run and that bodes well for the Skins. Ladell Betts torched the Eagles in their last meeting last season (33 carries for 171 yards). And, Clinton Portis is back and looked very good last week (98 yards and a TD on 17 carries). Philly's defense looked good last week but that was thanks to a terrible Green Bay running game (129 total rushing yards in two games). Philly also lost Pro Bowl corner Lito Sheppard to a sprained MCL last week which will help Jason Campbell tonight. The Eagles are just 4-8 ATS in their last twelve as a home favorite. Seven points is a lot to lay on a struggling team in a division rivalry game. We'll back the Redskins getting the touchdown here.
