football betting spreadIneptitude will be the name of the game when it comes to Buccaneers vs Redskins odds. At least sportsbook fans expected Tampa Bay to be bad - Washington has been a serious letdown. Tampa Bay will be helmed by a rookie starter at quarterback and the Skins might as well be considering how Jason Campbell is playing; this will be a battle of field goals.



Buccaneers vs Redskins odds: Buccaneers +7 (Total: 37)

  • WHAT: NFL odds
  • WHEN: Sunday, October 4, 1:00 p.m. ET

  • PICK: Buccaneers +7


Buccaneers vs Redskins odds maker breakdown: The Storyline
Tampa Bay and Washington are a combined 1-5 this season and things don't look like they'll be getting better anytime soon. Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris is obviously in over his head, and his squad looked absolutely awful in a 24-0 loss to the Giants last week. His counterpart, Jim Zorn, is on the hotseat after the Redskins helped Detroit snap a 19-game losing streak.


Buccaneers vs Redskins odds maker breakdown: Offense
There won't be many points on the board in this one. At about 13 points per game apiece, touchdowns have been hard to come by for Washington and Tampa Bay. In fact, three teams in the NFL have already scored more touchdowns than the Bucs and Redskins put together. The key to success in this matchup will be minimizing mistakes. That might mean trouble for Tampa Bay—it just named second-year quarterback Josh Johnson the new starter.

Betting Edge: Redskins


Buccaneers vs Redskins odds maker breakdown: Defense
The Redskins defense is actually an impressive unit, currently ranking sixth in the NFL in scoring. There were some leaks against the Lions last week, though, as evidenced by Kevin Smith's 101 yards on just 16 carries. It could have been more if the running back hadn't been injured. Tampa Bay, meanwhile, has been lit up in all three games by both the run and the pass. Here's a something to remember if you're betting online: allowing 30-plus points per game isn't exactly a key to success.

Betting Edge: Redskins


Buccaneers vs Redskins odds for total: 37
Both offenses are brutal, and Tampa Bay will be fielding a first-time starter at quarterback. Even if the running games get going, it won't be enough to set off any fireworks. If you like field goals, this game is for you.

Pick: Under 37


Buccaneers vs Redskins odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
Tampa running back Carnell Williams is banged up, but what else is new? Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth is nursing a hip injury. He's expected to play but it warrants mentioning.

Betting Edge: Even


Buccaneers vs Redskins betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
These are two bad, bad football teams. Yes, the Redskins have a powerful defense, but it simply can't overcome the mistakes of its offense. Ultimately, both defenses should be able to sloppily suffocate the opposing quarterbacks. Matchups between gutter teams like these are usually mistake-filled, low scoring and close. Sounds about right; the Redskins to bail out a win but the Buccaneers to keep it close and cover.

STAN’S PICK: Buccaneers +7
