Packers Redskins Betting – A Potential Shootout Shaping Up In The Capital

The betting pattern in Washington has become pretty obvious. When the Redskins get into a shoot-out, they lose. However, when Washington’s defense is able to hold down the opposing offense, the Redskins win. The Washington Redskins two wins this season were against the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys. However, it was a Philadelphia offense without Michael Vick and a Dallas offense that was in complete disarray at the beginning of the season.

The Green Bay Packers just keep moving right along and making all of the NFL betting experts happy. The Packers also beat a Vick-less Eagles early in the season, but the Pack was handed its first loss of the season by the Chicago Bears. The Bears this season, unlike any other time in their history, rely heavily on the pass. The pattern in Green Bay is also evident; the Packers defense has a problem shutting down the pass.

NFL Game Preview: Green Bay Packers (-2.5) @ Washington Redskins


Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is doing just fine. He made some bad decisions in the Chicago game in week three that probably cost the Packers the game, but he will recover from that. Rodgers has already thrown for 920 yards and eight touchdowns this season. The stat for Packers fans to be concerned about is Rodgers has also thrown five interceptions already this season. He threw two of those interceptions in the week four game against the Detroit Lions. Rodgers threw seven interceptions all season last year. Green Bay hopes another pattern is not emerging with their star quarterback.

Even at 2-2, the Redskins are having problems scoring points this season. The NFL sports betting scores in Washington were supposed to light up like a Christmas tree with the addition of all-pro quarterback Donovan McNabb, but it has not worked out that way because the Redskins still have an inadequate offensive line. Running back Clinton Portis has only run for 195 yards this season in four games. The offensive line for the Redskins was their weakness with Jason Campbell at quarterback, and it is the weakness with Donovan McNabb.


The Packers can get after the quarterback with pass rushers like Clay Matthews. When the Packers front seven goes up against the Washington offensive line then that could be a bad thing for Donovan McNabb. If McNabb can get the ball into the Green Bay secondary, then he may have a chance. The young defensive backfield in Green Bay is why the Packers are having a problem shutting down the opposing team’s passing game.

The NFL predictions coming out of preseason were that Washington defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth would not play and he probably would not be a Redskin much longer. Not only is Haynesworth still a Redskin, he is starting to become effective on the Washington defensive line. However, with a weak secondary, the Redskins may need more than an effective Albert Haynesworth to shut down Aaron Rodgers.

Final Word:

Rodgers will get his game together and he will have a huge day against a weak Washington defense. Donovan McNabb will spend much of the first half trying to figure out how to get the ball past the Green Bay defense. If the Washington offensive line can hold up, McNabb can compete with Rodgers in a shootout. If Clay Matthews has his way, it will be a very long day for Donovan McNabb.

Pick: Green Bay Packers 35-10
