NFL bettingNFL betting players are getting more into the preseason, and this week we should begin to see the starters on the field for a longer period of time, making it easier to evaluate a team’s Super Bowl odds chances. New England heads to Washington on Friday night, and the Patriots should show that their offense is back to normal in a place where they’ve never won.

Patriots vs Redskins Odds: Third time is a charm for Patriots in nation’s capital

  • WHAT: NFL preseason betting action
  • WHEN: Friday, August 28, 8:00 PM ET
  • WHERE: FedEx Field, Landover, MD
  • PICK: New England

Patriots vs Redskins Odds maker breakdown: Offense

Tom Brady looked solid again in a 7-6 loss to Cincinnati, going 4-of-8 for 57 yards, and he even got hit a couple of times, which is probably a good thing as he tries to get over the mental hurdle of a knee injury. Brian Hoyer and Kevin O’Connell combined to go 19-of-34 for 196 yards but they failed to get the Patriots into the end zone. Jason Campbell completed only one of his seven pass attempts in a 17-13 win over Pittsburgh, which isn’t a good sign after a tumultuous offseason that saw the Redskins publically courting other pivots. But the ground game was firing on all cylinders, rushing for 167 yards to help Washington hold the ball for over 35 minutes. However, they did throw a pair of interceptions.

Betting Edge: Washington

Patriots vs Redskins Odds maker breakdown: Defense

The Patriots did well to keep the Bengals to one score, but they also allowed 173 yards on the ground, which is never a good sign for a team’s online betting chances. New England also recovered a fumble and sacked the Cincinnati pivots four times. Even though the Redskins held the rush-happy Steelers to 99 yards, it was on 5.0 yards per carry, and they also got to the Pittsburgh signal-callers twice. Rookie linebacker Brian Orakpo looked excellent, racking up four tackles.

Betting Edge: Draw

Patriots vs Redskins Odds maker breakdown: Special Teams

Neither team really returned the ball well in their last game, but at least their kickers were perfect. New England’s Chris Hanson hit three punts inside the 20-yard line, which is always a good tool to have in the field-position battle, while Hunter Smith averaged over 44 yards a punt.

Betting Edge: Draw

Patriots vs Redskins Odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries

The Patriots don’t have any major injuries, and this is a reason why they’re a perennial favorite in your offshore sportsbook: outside of Brady’s injury from last year, it’s rare that the Patriots are rocked by injuries to their big players. The Redskins should have Santana Moss (hamstring) and Albert Haynesworth (knee) back for this meeting.

Betting Edge: Patriots

Patriots vs Redskins Odds betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick

The Patriots have lost both of their visits to Washington, but now they come here looking to improve a subpar performance against Cincinnati, while the Redskins are dealing with offensive problems of their own. Brady vs. Campbell is a no-brainer anyway, but Campbell’s confidence could be at an all-time low after the offseason and his performance last week. This could be a make-or-break point in Campbell’s season. Meanwhile, look for Brady and the New England offense to make a statement, and claim a sports betting victory at FedEx Field.

STAN’S PICK: New England
